… That’s how each day usually begins around here.
I’ve only been taking photographs sporadically since I have moved up to Vermont. Unfortunately, I haven’t worked with them — let alone look at them — since their capture. It is funny to consider the moments I may have tucked away.
The above photograph was taken this past Thursday. The clouds were heavy, and the wind off Lake Champlain was strong enough to make one lose their footing on solid ground. I only snapped a few frames before heading out of the elements and back into the warmth of my apartment. With my fingertips numb and my hair in wind-blown knots, I was actually excited to work with the very few shots I got.
With this ambition, I went through some of my shots of the lake over the past few months. Below, in a fragmented timeline of sorts, are some of my favorites.
Some of the most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen have been over the Adirondack mountains across Lake Champlain…
The low rumble in the sky drew my attention to this high-flying trick plane over the Lake — the most perfect playground for this gutsy pilot.
Apparently, I am not the only one who appreciates the sky-scene over the lake… Sunsets tend to generate a crowd in this area — despite the chilled air.
The above isn’t fully my shot: credit needs to be given to my best friend for spotting the spectators in Silhouette! (Thank you for your eyes!)
My favorite shot yet… I’m left speechless.
I hope you enjoyed looking at my photos as much as I enjoyed capturing them!
Now, open your doors and open your eyes to the spectacular sights around you (and share them with me!).
I’m working with watermarks to secure my photographs. The watermark on the photos above is what I temporarily settled on. Any tips from photographers out there on the best way to secure your digital images on the internet (without sticking a watermark directly across the image, that is), please advise! Tips and feedback are greatly appreciated. We are a community of individuals; we can only learn and grow from the knowledge of the whole!
I tend to keep the brightness of my screen pretty amped (while tending to keep my images pretty dark). If the images look dark, maybe temporarily increase the brightness of your screen for viewing… I realized this possible inconsistency (and possible inconvenience) just prior to publishing this completed post, and was too lazy to fix-for-darker-screens. (Apologies…)

Thanks, Mr. Hayduke!
