High Peaks

Post date: Jan 25, 2016 8:17:11 PM

With a view of catching and photographing the full moon rising over a snow-capped high peak in the Adirondacks, friend and photographer Rod and I covered 450 miles in 12 hours, only to have the clouds roll in at the last moment. However, all was not lost as we made a half dozen stops along the way and scoped out some cool places for future shoots. Here are my favorite images from the day...

Our first stop was at Indian Lake, and while playing around near a small set of ledges, I spotted these snow crystal formations. It seemed like they were growing to fill in the void.

Here is a neat ice formation from water splashing over a partially submerged rock.

A look at Indian Lake.

Here is Mt. Marcy (tallest) and its neighbors.

And, here is a wide angle view of Mt. Marcy and some of the high peaks.

We didn't accomplish our goal, but we had fun and didn't come home empty handed!
