Exploring the Shawangunks- A Visual Odyssey

  • Morgan Outdoors 46 Main St Livingston Mnor NY United States (map)

Nora’s stunning images will inspire and delight nature lovers, photographers, hikers and anyone who appreciates our remarkable landscape.

From Minnewaska to Sam’s Point, and back up to Mohonk, with many stops in between, join Nora on her visual odyssey through the Shawangunk Mountains in search of the unexpected.  She will show images from some of her favorite places, including Lake Awosting, the Peterskill, Spruce Glen, Lost City and Gertrude’s Nose.  Also she will share a few vignettes of her favorite species, including the red eft, the pink lady slipper, the box turtle and the red trillium. 

Looking for wacky formations, humorous characteristics, improbable locations, surprising shapes, Nora created her “Trunks of the Gunks” series which was published last year. During the project she became awed at scene after scene displaying how life adapts to adversity and how it succeeds in astonishing ways. 

In the recently released “Saving the Shawangunks” by Carleton Mabee (Black Dome Press, 2017), she created a portfolio of images to compliment the text.  They depict many familiar locations seen with a different eye, many from the areas that would have been impacted by the development documented in the book.

These stunning and evocative images result from over 10 years of hiking the region, all made possible because of the persistent and tenacious efforts of so many to preserve this land.  Nora hopes that viewing these photographs will inspire people to get out and appreciate the wonders that abound.
