Sunday was the day to finally visit The Wild Center in Tupper Lake, NY. I am still working on the images from the center and you will have to wait for a later post to learn more. The drive to the center was very scenic and provide numerous opportunities to stop and capture the beautiful views of the numerous lakes in the Adirondacks.
I spotted this lone, little island in Tupper Lake as the drive up was almost over. Obviously it was a necessary stop on the way home. The first image is a view from a small scrap of land jutting out into to lake accessible from the roadside parking area. It is not the view I saw on the drive up but I liked the profile of the island and tree. This is actually the second shot of this view. The first was rather bland but as I turned to walk away the sun chose that moment to peak out from behind a cloud and illuminate just the island.
The second image is the one that caught my eye initially. I had to walk a little ways up the road from the parking area in order to get the little island between the two islands in the distance. BTW – there are homes on both of those islands! I wasn’t rewarded by the sun with some singular illumination in this image but the clouds make up for it I think. 🙂
