p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Netting the White Whale


At long last, this lake decided to show me a little love. I've now lost count of how many times I've visited this location in various seasons for various sunrises, sunsets, and even midday opportunities, and never once did I get any nice color in the sky, despite my best efforts at reading the weather forecasts and satellite images. This time I came to the lake with lower expectations than ever, having long since decided that this place is one of my white whales, and that I should go there to log in some disappointment and get it out the way so that maybe better luck will meet me elsewhere. But this time, I seem to have to have caught this lake with its guard down.

Hello Phrasikleia,

Great composition on this one and nice detail in the snow. I also took the time to visit your web site. Excellent as well. Thank you for posting.

Great catch. Love the slot of open water, positioned just right to catch the reflection. Very well planned, or very serendipitous!

Many thanks for the comments. Jack, thanks also for the comment about my website. I'm actually in the process of migrating it to a new host in the hopes of speeding up the viewing experience, so it may disappear for a few days while the changes propagate.

Dave, I got pretty lucky when I found that last bit of open water. A week earlier the entire lake was frozen and covered in a layer of snow, so the lake just looked like a big, snowy meadow. Then the temperatures rose above freezing for a while, and now the ducks have some room to paddle around again. There is a larger area of open water in the distance, and it was full of ducks. I was very lucky that they didn't decide to inhabit *my* opening instead because that would have spoiled the reflection. Anyway, as with most shots, this one resulted from a happy combination of planning and luck.

Splended capture, I truly understand where you are coming from as I want to capture an incredible shot from tunnel view in Yosemite it still eludes me, glad you got yours.
