With its dramatic terrain of bordering mountain ranges, forests, pastures, along with charming villages, historic buildings, and an abundance of wildlife, the Hudson Valley offers its residents and visitors seemingly endless opportunities to partake of these beauties.

Hiking, biking, driving, as well as train rides or plane flights are several means by which to experience these scenes. However, one man, who has recorded the grandeur of the Valley through his photography, gives viewers the ultimate experience because of the perspectives from which he creates his photographic works.

Recognized nationally as well as regionally for his photography, Greg Miller has a keen sense of light and the dramatic element. He offers viewers an intense experience through his panoramic photographs which showcase the majesty of Hudson Valley.

The month-long exhibit of these colorful photographs continues through February 8. Entitled Greg Miller Photography–Scenes of the Hudson Valley, the exhibit is a splendid way to begin a new year in Orange Hall Gallery at SUNY Orange, Middletown.

“Much like the Hudson River School painters who celebrated the beauty of the Hudson Valley,” comments Greg Miller, “the photographs I have selected for this exhibit display luminous scenes of our region’s natural beauty, as well as the interaction of man with wilderness. These are the scenes that I have come to cherish and emotionally connect with on a daily basis.”

Greg Miller’s works fill the pages of two books, “The Hudson River: A Great American Treasure” and “Panorama of the Hudson River.” In addition, his works have been exhibited in numerous solo shows at many venues including the Dorsky Museum, Eclipse Mill Gallery, and Donskoj Gallery.

Orange Hall is located at the corner of Wawayanda and Grandview avenues, Middletown. Gallery hours: January 13, 1-4 p.m.; and January 14- February 8, Monday-Thursday 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Friday 9 a.m to 6 p.m. The college is closed January 21.
