Today I have two images from May which I had fully intended to post but I held on to them for quite sometime and in the end I decided that I just did not like them enough to post. As documentary pieces on the epic flooding we had this year they would be just fine but I wasn’t really happy with the compositions in either image or the shooting conditions of the day when I made them. Really grey and dull light with nearly shapeless clouds just did not offer up any interesting light and the sheer amount of water here made getting better compositions difficult.
These two images are from the parking lot behind the Echo Center which is a science center and aquarium with exhibits all about Lake Champlain. This entire area of the waterfront and most of the shoreline along the Lake were flooded like this well into June which is very unusual. The damage that all of this flooding is still evident today along the shoreline and was quite extensive all along the length of the lake. The second image below is of the parking attendants booth for this parking area and it is under water as well!
