Autumn On Baxter Lake

On the shore there is fire, and that fire is beautiful.

As I eagerly await this years first autumn visit to the White Mountains of New Hampshire, I’ve looked to autumns past for inspiration. Here’s an image from “our” lake captured a few years ago.

Edit: I just realized that this is my 200th post :-D

Five Minutes To Sunrise.

Sunrise, and a five-minute walk.

One of the things I love most about living on a lake are the ready-made photo opportunities it presents me with.

Even when I have no set plans to go out making pictures, all it takes is quick glance out the window to have me reaching for my camera and tripod.

With less than a five-minute walk bringing me to waters edge, there’s almost always time to make a picture.

Is there a place close to home that inspires you to grab your camera, even when you had no plans to do so?
