Frozen Stars-Burlington, Vermont Waterfront


Vermont-Winter-Star Trails-Night Photography

Lake Champlain froze over completely this year and I was able to walk out to this warning platform that sits on the Burlington Breakwater. This platform is just a short distance from shore but tough to get to without a boat or a frozen lake!  This platform sits on a smaller inner breakwater with the Coastguard station for Burlington on the opposite side of the structure. The temps were hovering around zero and slightly below when I made this image so I did not have a chance to finish the star trails like I wanted too. I got some nice light from a full moon to illuminate the platform with the trails above in the sky. The ice tends to move and crack so needless to say I did not spend a ton of time out here shooting!
