Sunset Color

Glory of Sunset seen over Lake Pleasant

Day is Done – Gone the Sun
On some days the setting of the sun is a glorious experience both in color and form.

The Passing of Days – The End of Life
A life passed is often marked by the colors of the life lived.

The beauty stays with us in our memory.

These thoughts wandered through my mind as I sat in the still beauty of this sunset over Lake Pleasant in the ancient Adirondack Mountains of New York State. The beach along the shore at Camp of the Woods in Speculator is one of my very favorite places. And on some days, witnesses spectacular sunsets.

Mom & Babies

Check out Mom and her ducklings. They appear to me to be Blue-winged Teals. I was taking landscape images along the shore of Lake Pleasant in the Adirondack Mountains when I spotted a mother and her babies swimming along the shore.

Quickly changing lenses, I grabbed some unexpected and fun images. I shot these using my Sigma 150 – 500 MM telephoto zoom – hand held.

“Chance favors the prepared mind,” as the old saying goes.

Be ready for the unexpected but fun image appearing unexpectedly.
