Olana

I love New York, specially this time of year, autumn is my favorite season. This weekend I had the opportunity to attend an art workshop and Olana was one of the destinations. A Persian style mansion on 250 beautiful acres, with breath taking views of the Hudson River and Catskill Mountains; that was the home of famed Hudson River School artist Frederic E. Church (1826-1900).
Here's a few of the pictures I took on this gorgeous autumn day.

The garden


Olana is located in the town of Hudson, NY. Once a bustling whaling town in the late 18th century, today Hudson is better known for it's large concentration of high-end antique shops along with boutiques, art galleries and fine dining. It's a great place to spend a day!

Julie,
Great shots! Looks like a beautiful place. The garden paths remind me of the ones I've seen in Hyde Park.
