Lead the way

Rocks forming a path leading out into Lake Champlain. Burlington, Vermont.

I came across this path of rocks quite by accident one day. These rocks sit on the Burlington bike path in a particularly shallow area and in the morning they are visible but at night the water level covers them up. It’s an interesting formation of small rocks that would make a nice composition looking out on the lake however right now there are lots of boats moored in the area and I felt they were too distracting in the image. My approach here was a simple black and white with the eye being lead through the frame by the rock formation.

I find it interesting when you take time to explore the area that you live in depth…You never know what you are going to find. I never noticed this area before until the water level in the lake dropped quite rapidly after all the flooding we had subsided. The formation here sticks out far enough into the water for a few different compositions in either direction. I will be patiently waiting until the fall when their will be unobstructed views to shoot this again!
