Fall is almost in full bloom here in the Hudson Valley, or it will be in the next few weeks. There aren’t many places in New York State, or some would say all over the country, where the fall foliage is more beautiful than here in the Hudson Valley.
Take a look at your Facebook feed. Photo after photo of fall sunrises and sunsets and countless trees with bright orange, yellow and red leaves. Better yet, take a look outside. Have you checked the view from the Mid Hudson Bridge or the Gateway over the Hudson looking west towards Ulster County? At the height of the fall foliage, it’s a pretty spectacular sight. Maybe it should be captured in a photo.
If you think you’re good enough at taking photos and you’re ready to go out and take some great photos in the Hudson Valley, you might actually make some money for it. And I’m not talking about being hired as a photographer.
I’m talking about the 9th Annual Central Hudson Fall Foliage Photo Contest for Central Hudson Gas and Electric customers. The contest was launched this week and the deadline to enter your photos in the contest is November 5 at noon. On November 9, the finalists will be posted on Facebook where they will be voted on. Voting ends on November 19 and the winner receives $ 750. Not too bad just to take a picture. You also get a framed copy of your winning photo. Voters will also be entered into a raffle for a framed copy of the winning photo.
For more details on the Fall Foliage Photo Contest, including rules and deadlines, visit the Central Hudson Gas and Electric Fall Foliage Contest webpage. Good luck and enjoy all this beautiful foliage.
