Description

Looking west toward the Adirondack Mountains and the Palisades on the New York side of Lake Champlain. This is the lake's steepest, most pristine, and maybe most picturesque stretch of shoreline. The sheer cliffs extend 100 feet above the water, and another 140 feet below it. This morning saw the first frost for most of the Champlain Valley, and a layer of cold air over the warmer lake water created the conditions for a mirage (cooler, denser air above warmer air). The mirage is evident where the shoreline is most distant.

Notes: I used a Nikon D40 with a Nikkor 300mm f/4.5 AI-s lens at f/8, 1/500 second, ISO 200, NEF. 35mm equiv is 450mm. Two second shutter delay initiated by wireless remote. Field of view set to 3 degrees. Photos were de-vignetted and punched up a bit before stitching.
