HADLEY — Stephen Schneider of Sunderland joined fellow members of the Amherst Plein Air Society in an outing to the summit of Mount Holyoke in Joseph A. Skinner State Park on Thursday morning.  Schneider took care to pick just the right spot to take in his landscape, setting up below the south face of the Summit House with a bucolic view of the Connecticut River — and a bright red stop sign on the park’s access road.  Rather than avoid the everyday objects that some might regard as clutter or distractions, Schneider says he likes to keep “the human element” in his work, and perhaps a little humor, too.
