Fall scenes in the Valley

Our photographers have been busy  capturing some beautiful fall scenes in the Valley as the leaves are really turning vibrant colors and shades.

I was traveling through Sullivan County this weekend and the leaves were GORGEOUS there too – but as a safe driver, I have no pictures of that.

So we’ll have to settle for these wonderful shots!

This week it’s been cool and less humid in the Valley, and it appears our readers have been out and about taking in the late-summer scenery.

The proof is in the reader gallery online which showcases numerous floral and plant scenes from around the area.

Here’s a peek:

Reader Photos: animals and children beating the heat!

I say this every time i post Reader Photos, but I really am so impressed with the photos we receive each week from readers and post in our photo galleries.

This week, the theme seems to be animals and children beating  the heat – which luckily has passed us by this week.

This batch also includes my favorite reader photo ever. Check below to see it:

Conquering a fear of heights?

Yesterday, Daily Item photographer Rob Inglis and I went to Knoebels in search of people to talk about what makes the park one of the best in the nation, as documented on the Travel Channel’s new rankings which puts the park at #2 in the country.

We were having fun and enjoying a day out of the office when it came down to crunch time, aka when Rob was force to confront his fear of heights on the Ferris Wheel in order to get an arial shot of the park.

It wasn’t pretty for a minute there.

Here’s the journey, which of course I had to capture on film:

Here he is preparing for ascent;

Daily Item Reader Photos, back again

Now that the Prom Perfect contest is over, Daily Item readers have resumed sending in their artistic photos in, depicting life in the Valley in a unique and up-front way.

It’s also almost summertime – which means I’m in the mood to go outside, plant flowers and enjoy the sunshine – though as yesterday’s post reveals, this week hasn’t been the best for that.

Anyway, here’s my favorite recent reader photos, depicting the best of the beginning of sweet summertime:
