Location scout snow scenes and other wintry photos
In the mid-Atlantic part of the United States where I live and work (New York City metro area / New Jersey) we normally get seasonal snow. Some years we get a little, some years we get more. Sometimes we get a LOT more 😉 (but then some winters it doesn’t snow AT ALL!) In any case contained herein are some locations I have visited while there was snow.
HighLine Park, New York, NY in the Snow
This is the now-famous HighLine Park in the Chelsea area on the west side of Manhattan in New York City.

Location Scout Snow at Harriman State Park, NY
Below is a recent location scout photo of Lake Sebago in Harriman State Park, NY. I’d have to say it is probably not the sort of place one would consider for a full-blown film location crew; this location is several miles hike (on foot) on wilderness trails, including a climb up Cardiac Hill. Sure makes a gorgeous background, though, huh? 🙂
Location Scout Spectacular Overlook:
The spectacular view from Torrey Memorial, Harriman State Park, NY
Raymond Hezekiah Torrey (July 15, 1880 – July 15, 1938) was the author of weekly columns, Outings and The Long Brown Path in the New York Evening Post in the 1920s and 1930s. The column played a major role in the development of the 2,100-mile (3,400 km) Appalachian Trail, the Long Path and the popularity of hiking generally. He was a founding member of the New York – New Jersey Trail Conference and one of the authors of the first edition of the New York Walk Book. He had extensive scientific knowledge, writing about everything from the short-billed marsh wren to marine fossils and lichens; he could identify over 700 plants. He was secretary of the Association for the Preservation of the Adirondacks, and also secretary of the American Scenic and Historic Preservation Society.
- New York / New Jersey Trail Conference (NYNJTC) honors Raymond Torrey each year with its Annual Torrey Memorial Hike
Winter Location Scout
Catskills Winter Day Trip
For just about any location scout, a recreational personal trip is usually a busman’s holiday and a recent snowy day trip on a sunny, crystal-clear day to the Catskills and Mountain Trails Cross Country Ski Center in Tannersville, NY was no exception.
