Ed Rowley’s Portfolio

BROOKWOOD POINT

Ed Rowley’s Portfolio

SCARLET TANAGER: A Monet-like spot of red sets off Ed Rowley’s study of Brookwood Point’s Garden House.

Raised in the Town of Oneonta, Ed Rowley spent many boyhood summers at his family’s camp on Otsego Lake, soon becoming familiar with such Glimmerglass’ charms as Brookwood Gardens, about a mile up the west wide of the lake, then owned by the late Bob Cook.   Later, as Rowley pursued a lifelong interest in photography, he captured hundreds of images of the much-beloved property.   With Otsego Land Trust’s Grand Reopening of the 22-acre lakeside parcel noon-5 p.m. Saturday as Brookwood Point, Ed sent along these recent images of the property to give the public a taste of the delights it will be experiencing for years to come.

COOPERSTOWN – Citing family commitments, John Winter, Otsego Land Trust executive for less than a year, will be resigning, the Land Trust announced today.

Because of those commitments, he has been unexpectedly delayed relocating to the Cooperstown area and will not be able to do so for another two years.

This development has made performance of his duties difficult and he offered his resignation to the Land Trust’s board of directors at their last meeting.  The board accepted his resignation with regret.
