A beautiful morning today in the village of Raquette Lake. The colors are changing a lot in certain places. It seems early, but a careful assessment proves otherwise. The maples are still in their summer coats. The changes seem mostly related to the wetland trees. There is a really nice little pond right on Rt. 28 near the village. I've done a few simple things there over the years, but today I was determined to dig into it a little. Today I was captured by the subtle variations in the earth-tone colors of the trees bordering the pond. The image I made looks like chaos at first, but there is a definite simple structure and the more I look at it the more I see. I'll look at it again six months from now and decide whether I really like it or not!
I am a photo artist and writer whose heart lives in the Adirondack Mountains of New York, regardless of where I happen to be eating my breakfast each morning.
I am owner/director of the Adirondack Photography Institute, an organization dedicated to improving the quality of our lives and preserving our natural spaces through the study and practice of outdoor photography as a creative medium.
Oh yeah, if I'm lucky enough on a given day to have a choice of breakfast venue, that would be the Tamarack Café in Inlet, NY.
