Red Canoe












This red canoe was a great subject to photograph. It is the perfect fit to the lake and scenery. I could have spent more time photographing it, but remember it was the vehicle for a romantic afternoon and I did not want to be in the way!
Mirror Lake is a destination place for a day trip. Pack a lunch, sun screen, a camera of course, and your fishing gear. I personal have a hard time deciding want to do, fishing or photography! This time it was photography and now I have an excuse to go again, I need to go fishing! There are several others small lakes and areas to visit near Mirror Lake. A day trip may be enough time to explore, but it provides a great diversion. There are time when you have to clear your head and reconnect with nature. Shot using a Sigma 18-50mm f/2.8 lens with some editing. Cropping and or levels adjustment to bring out the color.

I really like all the perspectives you captured of this wonderful red canoe! I can't say that I like one over the other, as they are all so good. You must have had a blast with this choice to photograph rather than fish!

Excellent set David.
For me 1 & 3 really stand out; but they are all excellent shots.
It was a great subject, in a beautiful setting.

I agree with Keith. All shots are great but the first and the third are the best:)

Looks like my kind of place. We visit a Mirror Lake in NY in the Adirondacks.
