Overview

The Adirondack landscape is supremely beautiful, endowed with lofty mountains and rich northern forests reflected in over 2,800 lakes and ponds and thousands of miles of flowing waterways. Imprinted with four distinct seasons, the scenery evolves continually. Each season brings new wonders and challenges, yet this landscape retains a sense of place unique in our nation - a distinctly Adirondack heart and soul. Photographed over several years, spanning the geographic diversity of the six-million acre Adirondack Park, Mark Bowie presents a breathtaking tribute to the ever-changing seasons that decorate this magnificent assemblage of mountains, woods, and waters. The seasons' passage is recorded in the foliage, their moods reflected in the waters. Each season showcases the landscape in different light, and in each we see the wealth, the beauty, the resilience of life. Acclaimed photographer Mark Bowie has followed the compass from Old Forge to Lake George, from Great Sacandaga Lake to the Saranacs and Paul Smiths, meticulously capturing the glories and subtleties of each Adirondack season. Masterfully presented, this awe-inspiring overview tantalizes the senses. Revel in spring's explosion of life; imagine the balmy summer breeze wafting across the lake; recall strolling amongst autumn's majestic cathedrals of color and winter's snowbound wonderlands. From the grand to the intimate, this is a spectacular portfolio of the Adirondacks' ever-changing seasons.
