Winter Scenes

I just got back from hanging a new grouping of historic Bethlehem winter scenes at Town Hall (outside the Receiver of Taxes office - head over and take a look.)

This is one of my favorites.

The photograph is almost painterly with an air of that still silence that comes after a snow fall. 

It is of the Sager farmhouse on New Scotland Road right near the Slingerlands Post Office, Price Chopper and the roundabout.  I don't think it is quiet there now - even after a snowfall.

Here's a snap from Google's Street View. On the left in the trees you might recognize the large American flag draped over the front of the house. 

And, just for a chuckle, here's an aerial view from Bing.  It brings back memories of Pre-Roundabout Era Slingerlands.
