This is the view of Lehigh Hanson Cement in Glens Falls NY. It's taken from across the street near where I report to work. Not a glamour shot, but I dig mills and factories.

Show us some of your local landscape!

The hill covered in snow is Inglebourough, in North Yorkshire, which we can see from our house :D
the boulder, glacial erratic, is on Scale moor on the slopes of Whernside opposite.

This is a shot I took during the winter. It's in Fort Edward, a town right next door to Hudson Falls NY where we live. The town's literally touch one another on Route 4. If you didn't know, you'd think it was one town. I thought I better take a picture of this before some PC do-gooders decide it's bad for kids and paint it over.

Another winter pic from my neck of northern NY. Here's a look at an old school house during a storm in Salem NY.

Biltmore House, the largest privately owned home in the US. Built by George Vanderbilt in the late 1800s and money was not an issue. It’s located in Asheville, NC still owned by the family.
