Across The Pond


Tree silhouette with sunset over Lake Champlain.

Tree silhouette with sunset over Lake Champlain.

I like this tree. It’s one of only a handful that are on the Burlington waterfront. I happened to be out at sunset on another cold Winter night with little snow but I did get some nice color! I really wanted to frame the clouds with a silhouette shot if this tree but getting the right color in the sky with some good clouds seems to be the real trick this Winter. You just have to keep going back day after day and often I am rewarded with a shot like this.

Nothing fancy with this one… I wanted to have the tree dominate the frame and catching some of the light on the ground around the base of the tree. I use the term Pond in the title loosely because Lake Champlain is quite large. Not as big as the other Great Lakes but equally as impressive.
