Oh, How I Miss the Hudson River


While looking for a new Windows 8.1 lock screen image, I stumbled upon this photo–which I captured in January of 2012.  I have to admit that I’m somewhat partial–but I much prefer this black and white photo to the loud splash of color that is the default lock screen image.

While I’m on the topic of Windows 8.1, I must say that it seems like a solid operating system crippled by a horrible and assuming interface.  That’s why I set up a dual-boot system with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS–a much cleaner interface and, while it’s not a perfect operating system, it’s pretty good in terms of stability and features.  If you are looking for a free operating system (and a free office experience), then Ubuntu is pretty good.  Expect a learning curve and some interface with the command prompt.

In other words, with free comes the price of a challenge.  =)

Back to the photo:  the day was filled with low clouds and river fog.  The fog stuck to the fjord and the water like glue.  It seemed to ebb and flow with the tidal river.  The breeze would lick as the fog and create interesting effects as it contradicted the flow of the water.  This is one of many images that I captured that day.  More to come, perhaps, if I can process them.
