About This Book

A stunning tribute to one of America’s natural treasures in panoramic photographs of the Adirondack Park’s grand mountains, pristine woods, and picturesque waterways.
 
Covering more ground than Yellowstone, Yosemite, and the Grand Canyon combined, the Adirondack Park is one of the great wilderness areas in this country. This volume presents an all-new selection of images, with a focus on how the seasons transform the landscape: the tree-covered mountains in autumnal glory, rivers hushed by winter snow, verdant meadows alive with spring, wildlife such as bears and moose, as well as historic resorts and villages. Each chapter covers a different corner of the park, from Lake Placid and the High Peaks to Saranac Lake, Lake George, and the Fulton Chain. To appreciate the wonders of the Adirondacks through the lens of one of the area’s most accomplished photographers is like exploring them for the first time.

  • "...a tribute to one of America’s natural treasures in panoramic photographs of the Adirondack Park’s grand mountains, pristine woods, and picturesque waterways."
    Publishers Weekly, Spring 2017 Announcements

    "I have never had the pleasure of visiting the Adirondacks in person, but after viewing the photographs in The Adirondacks: Season by Season I know that a trip there is in my future."
    Snug Harbor Bay 

    "Rainbows stretch across Brant Lake, loons dance and glide over the water, a baby fawn nestled in the thickets, cairns along a trail, trees shrouded in mist, colorful leaves blanketing the earth, icicles along the shoreline, and my personal favorite - a shot of an Adirondack chair on a dock that faces crystal clear water stretching to the forest beyond.  I can picture myself sitting there at either sunrise or sunset. I have never had the pleasure of visiting the Adirondacks in person, but after viewing the photographs in The Adirondacks: Season by Season I know that a trip there is in my future.  In the meantime I will enjoy the book and try to decide which season and area to visit first.”
