Light in the Darkness
I ended my first full day of shooting in the Northeast Kingdom satisfied with what I had captured, but also very tired from having been up early. I planned to catch up on my sleep that night, but the weather was not cooperating. After being cloudy most of the day, the forecast was for more clouds and rain the next day. When I woke up at around 1:00 am and noticed that the sky was mostly clear, my desire to get some good shots overruled my fatigue, and I set out to capture a few more night images while the opportunity presented itself.
This shot was taken at around 2:30 am near a farm on a ridge located roughly in the middle of the triangle formed by Lake Willoughby, Echo Lake and Island Pond. It looks northeast over the valleys and rolling hills of the Northeast Kingdom, showing a view of stars and streaming clouds on what was an unseasonably warm and pleasant night.
