“Color showing up in spots here,” writes our photographer/kayaker/eagle-stalking friend Michael, in Albany. “Hit paydirt today in the central Adirondacks!”
Yep, we’d say so. All photos courtesy of the bountiful talent and generosity of Mr. Kalin, today’s guest blogger. Here are a few of Michael’s photos from his recent paddle on Indian Lake. Check out his earlier (amazing!) 2G3K post featuring his favorite eagle family in Hudson River Islands State Park.
MK 10/4: “The first is the launch site when I arrived, bathed in fall hues—this is legit, no faux colors! That’s Snowy in the background, under clouds, which clung to the mountain most of the time. Friday’s shot was one of the few moments when the dome was not clouded over.”
MK 10/4: “Both photos show exposed sandy/rocky features that are usually under water. Although a natural lake, the level was raised by damming many decades ago, drawn down in fall to allow capacity for next spring’s melt. Don’t know how close this elevation is to the historical pre-dammed lake, but it certainly makes for friendly paddling. So many beachy areas for taking out on a whim, so many rock formations to explore!”
