“But calm, white calm, was born into a swan”

                                                                                      ~Elizabeth Coatsworth

A lone mute swan sits motionless on the still surface of the water, with a wall of brown reeds as a backdrop.

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

And Then It Was Said…

“Let the forest be overcome with color.”

Five Minutes To Sunrise.

Sunrise, and a five-minute walk.

Sunrise over Baxter Lake in Rochester, New Hampshire

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?

Sunday’s Hidden Treasure

The last of the late day light causes the wispy clouds over Cherry Pond to take on a pinkish hue. The far off blue-green of the mountain range beyond the pond is reflected on the glassy smooth surface of the water.
