Abandoned Grossingers Resort Indoor Pool, Urbex, HDR, Scott Frederick Photography

Nikon D7000, Nikkor 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5, 10mm, f/16, ISO 100

This iconic image of the indoor pool at the abandoned Grossinger’s Resort in Upstate NY has been photographed many times.  I’m glad I got a chance to visit this resort, but since our visit was cut short I’m disappointed I didn’t grab more images while I was there.  We were spotted inside this enclosed pool shortly after this image was taken by a retired NY State Police Officer who firmly asked us to leave!  4 hours later we arrived back home, safely!  It is always unfortunate to travel far to a location only to turn around and come back home, but this is the price you pay when your into this type of photography!

Jeff Hall - I’m shocked to hear that Grossinger’s is in this state. When I was a kid, this was the iconic Catskill’s landmark. I take it the officer was not in a negotiating mood, even given your innocent intentions? (Not that he had any right to appoint himself the local authority).

I like the shot, though I think there is too much foreground on the near left that doesn’t add anything to the image. I’m also not a big fan of the grunge effect with HDR. I like a much cleaner HDR look, but that’s just a personal feeling.
