Sunrise, and a five-minute walk.

Sunrise over Baxter Lake in Rochester, New Hampshire

One of the things I love most about living on a lake are the ready-made photo opportunities it presents me with.

Even when I have no set plans to go out making pictures, all it takes is quick glance out the window to have me reaching for my camera and tripod.

With less than a five-minute walk bringing me to waters edge, there’s almost always time to make a picture.

Is there a place close to home that inspires you to grab your camera, even when you had no plans to do so?

    1. Thank you very much. If you’ve happened to spend any amount of time reading my blog, you’ll find I’m more likely to let a photograph get in the way of life, namely in the form of sleep deprivation πŸ˜€

  1. Gives one a warm glow looking at pictures like that. I always take my camera when out walking, even if not planned to take photos or the weather is not very good; you never know. Can’t say the same for my tripod, so awkward lumbering that around.

    1. You’re so right Chrisstov, and quite often the more unsettled the weather, the more dramatic the photos. I almost never leave my tripod at home. Very, very rarely do I hand hold my camera. So rarely in fact that I don’t have a camera strap on it. They just get in the way on the tripod. Your photos will always be sharper when using a tripod too πŸ™‚

  2. Stunning. I have no doubt you would have a fantastic time photographing the natural imagery here in Australia πŸ™‚ The Northern Territory (where I am from) has so many amazing opportunities to get brilliant snaps.

    Just out of curiosity, do you have a Red Bubble account?

    1. Thank you, again Lou! πŸ™‚ I would absolutely love to see Australia. I’ve always dreamed of diving with great whites on the Great Barrier Reef, as well as seeing the rest of your beautiful country.

      As for Red Bubble, no I do not. Why do you ask? Do you?

      1. I do have a red Bubble Account, though use it to primarily buy other peoples work in the various offered formats.

        I have purchased some gorgeous prints and framed photographs off the site.

        I understand people sometimes do not like to go down that route, though generally whenever I find an artist that I really enjoy, I try and get them to upload for me so I can purchase their stuff… lol

        Have you got another area where you sell your works? (before I start beating you with a stick to get the Bubble?)

        1. I guess I’ll have to look a little further into Red Bubble then won’t I? Can’t have you beating me with a stick, that just won’t do at all. In the mean time stop on by and spend some quality time HERE And since I’m now entering shameless self promotion mode, if you have nothing better to do you might as well head on over HERE and become a fan πŸ˜‰ Basically, all of my images are available for sale. Some photographs that may show up on my blog or my fan page may not be on my website though, (can you say procrastination?) So if you see anything you like, just ask.
