After the check in period, the road rally will take you and your vehicle through the country roads of beautiful Saratoga County, passing along the lovely Saratoga Lake as you make your way to the historic Saratoga Battle Field – where one of the most significant battles took place in American and world history – for an opportunity to see the grounds as well as have you and your automobile photographed by a well recognized photographer, Sue Clark.  Ms. Clark is renowned in many art galleries in the Northeast and Southwest for her unique ability to capture the character of an object. You will be leaving this weekend with a matted and framed photograph from this trip.

After our time at the Battlefield we will then be back to the country roads and off to a brand new automobile mini museum. This breathtaking collection not only will inspire the mind with each wall that is hand painted to a different theme but also the hospitality of the owner and his staff. You have an opportunity to take a tour and hear the unique story behind this location. While visiting Roli’s Muscle Cars, LLC, enjoy a classic, mid-morning Italian countryside respite.  An authentic and unique spread of Italian cheeses, local apples paired with Italian sparkling waters many other delicacies will await your palate. .

The rest of the enjoyable ride will be bringing you back onto the country roads for a wonderful ride back to Saratoga Springs where everyone will be meeting back at the grounds of Saratoga Polo.

Spotlightnews.com on the 'True Grit'

Sue Clark’s  featured shots of western life, is showcased, in her “True Grit” art show, at Samuel’s in Alplaus.

— One area woman didn’t pick up the lens until later in life, but now she’s focusing it on a bygone lifestyle not often seen.

Sue Clark is currently displaying her American Western photography show “True Grit,” at Samuel’s in Alplaus, and the display runs until May 31. Specializing in Western and equine photography has seen her capturing area scenes, but she has also traveled to the southwest regularly to places such as Ghost Ranch, an education and retreat center located close to the Village of Abiquiu in New Mexico.

In 2005, Clark decided to immerse herself in fine art photography after attending a Landmark Education program. Through the program, she met people who wanted to become artists and others who had made the jump and had become successful in artistic endeavors.

“I just heard all these people talking about what they wanted to do,” Clark said. “I knew in the back of my mind I had always had a good camera eye as far as subject goes. All I needed was to get that one ribbon and off I ran.”

Entering judged contests was her goal, so in 2005 she entered a juried show at the Altamont Fair and walked away with a second place ribbon. This confirmed to her she did “have an eye for photography” and led her to continue pursuit of her passion.

To start fine-tuning her craft, she turned to the Internet for resources on techniques and would scan photography and south-western magazines to pick up pointers. She also took weekend training sessions in Woodstock.

Committing to one photography workshop a year helped her sharpen her knowledge, too. Last fall, she attended the Taos Art School’s equine photography workshop in New Mexico.

As a member of the Saratoga Arts council, she said there are a lot of Capital District photographers shooting horses, but she choose to stretch beyond the local equine scene.
