Still on Autumn colors. I go for these rides and I feel like I'm just shooting color, over and over. Pretty colors, though.
November 2, 2005, that's the day I found the ruins by the Hudson River. Parked my bike to get a closer look.
Now, these ruins I found. They are right by one of the "official" picnic stops on the Hudson River Drive. I'd stopped at the picnic area before, but I didn't find the ruins before because they require venturing down a path that I hadn't seen before. I imagine the path used to be the driveway to the building that had been built there.
Anyways, I love ruins. I love what they symbolize - something that was before, but isn't anymore. A mystery.
Whatever was built, I imagine it was before the George Washington Bridge was built, but it still must have been a nice view on the Hudson.
My default 20 mile ride takes me by the same scenery, including going under the George Washington Bridge for this obvious shot:
