Stunning Drone Videography Captures Hudson Valley Fall
Fall has arrived and you won't find views of the Hudson Valley quite like this just anywhere.
The video was compiled from footage taken by Scott Snell of SDS Imagery and is a tribute to fall in the Hudson Valley. The aerial shots are of Mohonk Preserve and the surrounding areas. The soundtrack selection is perfect with Louie Armstrong's 'What A Wonderful World' as the backing track.
If you intend to enjoy the foliage this year it's best not to wait. Dry conditions affect all trees differently but could lead to a shorter window of opportunity to take in the views. Climate Central gets into more detail as to why drought-like conditions can be complex for trees.
Weekly foliage reports are issued every fall by the I Love NY program run by the Empire State Development Division of Tourism. The now three-year-old program relies on volunteers across the state submitting their reviews of the situation. Anyone posting foliage photos to Instagram or Twitter are encouraged to use the hashtag #NYLovesFall.
