Old Forge Library to host Sue Kiesel’s Healing Power of Photographing Outdoors presentation on Aug. 11

On August 11 at 5 p.m., the Local Histories and Stories Series will feature Sue Kiesel and her presentation on The Healing Power of Photographing Outdoors in the Adirondacks at the Old Forge Library.

Sue is a lifelong lover of the Adirondacks, having been here her entire life as a seasonal resident. She began her current passion for photography 15 years ago and is a true addict!  She enjoys, more than anything, sharing her captures. It is her greatest desire to sway others to appreciate the healing quality that nature offers all of us. If others catch the bug, perhaps they too will learn how fragile mother nature is and promote protecting it for the many generations to come.

Sue is a longtime supporter of both the Old Forge Library and the Town of Webb Historical Association’s Goodsell Museum.  Photographer and author of The Many Faces of Snowy Owls, her nature photographs of the Adirondacks will be the documents used by future historians.

Other historians and speakers throughout the summer will include: 

8/18 – Tom McCabe & Phil Sanzone: Fulton Chain of Lakes Association ~ preserving and protecting the unique environment of our lakes and the surrounding woodlands, streams and wetlands for over 50 years.

 8/25 – Charlie Herr: Raquette Lake Railway ~ the story of this railroad from its origins as a lumber railroad, a right-of-way obtained through State lands, its building and the railroad stations.

The Local History and Stories Series is a collaboration between the Old Forge Library and the Town of Webb Historical Association, and all presentations are free and open to all.

    The loon shot actually brought tears to my eyes. The photo would be worth losing both the kayak and the camera, but definitely not the hat.
