Autumn shores of Lake Champlain

From a roll of film from a walk last October: There was a roaring wind up and down Lake Champlain. The sun was bright and the real cold had yet to settle in for the season. Several kitesurfers were out on the lake virtually flying over the whitecaps.

The water was down on the lake after a very dry summer, and the beach was deep in a way that it rarely is. That left plenty of pools in the sand, with the dead grasses and leaves on the surface.
