Almost an hour south of Albany is the Center of the World—I own it.
– F. Church.
Frederic Edwin Church’s house is located on top of the hill overlooking the Hudson River valley and the Catskill Mountains.
The house, now a museum stopped in time, is bathed in radiance. I have never seen anything like this. The place is literally immersed in light and melts with the surrounding beauty perfectly.
One experiences Church’s interpretation of light immediately. No way I could ever capture what I saw so I am supplementing this post with Church’s “light” work. If you can, go visit the house at the sunset, sunrise hours and wish for a show because nature delivers that at Olana. Church will be happy.
