More Black and White by the Lake

This is a similar shot to the last one. I wanted to get one with a bit more ice in black and white before I switch back to doing mostly color when things get a bit greener. The bit of plane exhaust trail at the top of the one mast I can't claim as being intentional, as several people have asked.

Spring Trail

Well, I'm glad its spring, able to get out and take more pictures. This one I took this afternoon near the docks here in downtown Plattsburgh. The city is building a park on a stretch of land that was formerly just a trashy looking lot of land next to the lake. The unfinished look of the scene, notice the long strip of plastic sheeting used to stop erosion around the whole shoreline and the bare dirt throughout, makes this shot feel unique for me.
