Winter textures

Seeing textures in the snow and ice.

Lake Champlain ice floe

The lake never froze this winter, but on cold days, you cold see ice build up along the shore. This was after a cold spell when there was ice left in the eddies.

River into lake Burlington bike path

Lake Champlain shore where a crappy little stream runs out of the Barge Canal, a Superfund site (the bad stuff is settled on the bottom and not in the water, or so they say). Love the layers of shades and textures.

Snow on beach, Lake Champlain

Snow on the beach looks almost like sand dunes.

Along the waterfront

Rail cars, Burlington bike path north

There’s a working rail line along the shores of Lake Champlain, freight mostly, but the occasional holiday passenger train. It seems like some parts of the line are used mostly to park rolling stock.

Down to the water

When the water is high, the steps disappeared into the lake.

Grey Sunday just afternoon. Set out for a walk with Junebug and met nearly no one until after about an hour, seems people began to come out despite the weather. Wasn’t in the mood to share the trails with anyone.

A week earlier, much sunnier weather with the clear light you see i.n autumn that’s sharper than the brightest summer day for the cold in the air.

Pool on Blodgett Beach

In a pool on Blodgett Beach, wind ripples the surface of the water.

Blodgett Beach

Someone raised a piece of driftwood on the beach. Normally, this part of the the beach would in under water, but we had an exceptionally dry summer that kept the lake water lows well into winter.

Catching up on the film I shot last fall. This roll from early November shot on a Zeiss Ikon ZM mounted with a Summicron 35 on Ilford HP5.

November sunset, Blanchard Beach at Oakledge Park

The sun with a last burst of light before slipping behind clouds near sunset in early November. The light plays off a large pool on the beach.

Junebug at Blanchard Beach, Oakledge Park

Letting Junebug loose on the beach. Early November and we had the place to ourselves.

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.

Getting ready to set sail

Kitesurfers get ready to take to the waters to take advantage of stiff winds on Lake Champlain.

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.

Afloat

A swirl of debris floats on lake water trapped by sand on Blanchard Beach at Oakledge Park.

Picked up a Nikon F2AS a while back and took it out for a spin last fall fitted with a Nikkor-S 35mm F2.8, converted to AI.
