  • Migrating Birds, Mary Lou Oliveira, 2007.

On an early evening last fall, Mary Lou Oliveira was in her cottage in rural Columbia County when she heard an incredible noise outside in the trees. The architect grabbed her digital camera—a Canon Power Shot SD300—and took two shots of the thousands of birds that were huddled in her backyard trees. As suggested by her husband Paul Buckhurst, she entered the photo on the last day of submission for Scenic Hudson’s first annual online photo contest. Oliveira’s photo was one of over 2,500 photos submitted, with categories including “Scenic Hudson Parks,” “Valley Landscapes and Communities,” “Wildlife,” “People Connecting with Nature,” and “Farmland.”

The exhibit “Capturing the Magic of the Hudson River” will showcase a collection of the top 100 photos at the Muddy Cup in Poughkeepsie on Friday, August 8 through August 31. An opening reception will be held on August 8, from 6 to 8pm. All photo entries can be viewed online on the Scenic Hudson website. The organization will also be sponsoring a Parks Festival to occur at five different parks on August 16. www.scenichudson.org.
