From the porch of the Mohonk Mountain House in New Paltz, NY. Mohonk, a Victorian style hotel, was built in the 1800s. It was the original location of the United Nations and in it's 140 years has been visited by several US Presidents and is among a favorite resting place of celebrities. It is the hotel in which Stephen King's, "The Shining" was based and was actually written during one of his winter time stays.
My family and I are lucky to live close by, enabling us to make visits to this wonderfully relaxing resort. (to view other photos from Mohonk click the label tab)

It must be nice to sit in one of those chares ...
That is a great photo!!
Thanks for sharing
Great shot! What a perfect place to sit and enjoy "your skies" and photograph them for us to enjoy! Beautiful! Happy SWF!
Love how the slatted chairs are lined up in this as if waiting for a performance! Different perspective of the sky!
I would like so much to have a seat there! Lovely
I would love to be there! Lovely perspective.
that is a great shot; very relaxing.
Looks quite welcoming, all those chairs. Thanks for teaching us a bit of history, too.
What a place to watch a sky and the ocean from :o)
A great example of cumulus clouds!
Excellent shot. Spooky movie - great place!
What a lovely spot. I grew up about an hour south, and my parents both grew up just about half an hour further north, if that much.
There's a wonderful singer-songwriter by the name of Kurt Henry who lives not far from you who told me a story about singing one of his songs to Isaac Asimov years ago at the Mohonk Mountain House.
What a nice way in which to spend the day!
Very unique. Great shot of what looks like a great view. Well done.
Have a great weekend!

Nice view...whit a glass of wine and some music from my mp3!
Great post! And a wonderful photo for Skywatch. Thanks for visiting my blog.
What a great photo...it sure would make a spectacular painting...
Deliciously to sit there and look at to the clouds.
That is such a perfect picture. The composition is just spot on. The story is very interesting too. Did you n ot feel spooked at night. That film was so creepingly full of horror.
Btw. the middle picture in my blog was the sun not the moon :)
That looks like a great place to hang out for a while. And the empty chairs make it look inviting and relaxing. :)
Perfection. Great composition.
Can I come sit a spell? This picture is so inviting. Love the view.
Great setting and clouds. Looks like a beautiful painting. Happy Skywatching!
What a great post! - A little history, a little pop culture, and a beautifully composed photo!
Love the shot - it is different from all the sunsets! I love sunsets - have about 1000 pics of sunsets! But this one is very nice! Would love to sit there with a glass of red wine....
Neat photo and it also sounds like a really cool place.
That really is a wish you were here image.
May I come and sit a spell, have a cup of tea and chat? I love that view! Wonderful post.
Great composition on this shot. Makes one want to sit and just relax for the afternoon. Have a great weekend Smiles B
Wonderful photo! Thank you!
