Along the Shore

Delta Lake State Park

I eventually did make my way to the lake the other day. Although I explored the area near the entrance and was able to capture a good balance between the light and dark, I had plenty of time to see what else the park could offer me. Due to the weather there were more people than I would have liked and it becomes a challenge to explore while not running into people in unexpected places. It is usually a safe option to walk the shore below the upper area overlook. I really liked the golden glow on these rocks and trees…

Delta Light

Delta Lake State Park

Yesterday was a beautiful day in the Mohawk Valley. I broke up the work-from-home routine by walking around the block at lunch. It was exactly what I needed after sitting at the desk all morning. In the evening I drove up to Delta Lake for the sunset. I was not going to let the day end with me sitting on the couch.

Driving into the park I couldn’t help but admire the wonderful light hitting the trees lining the body of water near the entrance. I was not going to let that light get away. I pulled the car into the main office parking area and assembled my team… the 12-40mm lens, the circular polarizer and my Giottos tripod.

I started at the most obvious location. It provided a great wide view of the trees and of course a beautiful reflection. It is the same view I captured last October that has become my favorite autumn image. After capturing last night’s view I didn’t feel I could leave the area without exploring more angles. I was especially interested in seeing how I could capture the difference between the light and the dark sections of trees. I’ll let you be the judge of how I did…
