A Place of Serenity

Sagamore Hill was President Teddy Roosevelt’s Long Island home and often served as his summer White House. Set high atop a hill on the island’s north shore overlooking a majestic body of water, it is a refuge from nearby New York City. It is a place of beauty and serenity; a place to walk and meditate and listen to birdsong in the early evening.

The home serves as a rich looking glass into Roosevelt’s life and the lives of his children. You don’t have to be a fan of American history to visit, but you’ll likely leave as one. The site is a national park and there is no charge to wander the grounds.

I shot this footage on my Sony EX-1 in early July but the Memorial Day regalia was still in place. I began to color grade it but decided that nothing I could do in terms of grading looked as nice as the “raw” footage, which represents exactly how the park looked that day.
