Of course one needs to get down the basics. So I got my share of 'foundation' shots. Lyndhurst is a nineteenth-century mansion and estate on the Hudson River. http://www.lyndhurst.org/history.html It is of interest to Dark Shadows aficionados because of its use in the Dark Shadows movies as the Collinwood estate. But even if you neglected to see House of Dark Shadows or Night of Dark Shadows, there is a fair amount of historical, architectural, botanical and artistic points of interest to keep one occupied for awhile.
And it was a nice summer's day. Lookee all the Greeeen! Both the verdant kind and the financial sort...

Naturally I was attracted to all the natural bits not often promoted in brochures or movies. This is a nifty windbreak of trees.
