6:48AM

This photograph, by my husband Cole Scott, conveys a sense of longing for the end of a season.  I find it evocative, pleasurable and sad at the same time.  This happens to be Lake Chocoura, in N.H.  It's one of the most photographed in the state.

I'm inspired to post by the "End of November" sunset post on My Five Men.  Thanks Betsy!

Brian: we had our second snow last Wednesday. Our first was in October. Both are melting but we'll get that cold front after you do and then the snow will fly again.

Lola: Thanks for visiting. The photograph seeps into your bones, doesn't it?

I've been there and have gorgeous photos of fall trees reflected in the water as well as my daughter and niece hamming it up for the camera. This shot is lovely and yes, a little sad.

DJan said...

Yes, it's beautiful all right. And it is incredibly peaceful. Thank you for gifting it today. :-)

Betsy said...

one of the most photographed...wow, I can see why! What a gorgeous view that is! And it certainly says fall is waning and winter is waiting in the wings!

California Girl said...

Grandmother: You're a lucky lady to have your own photos of it. I never pass it without a sigh of pleasure.

Djan: you are so welcome.

Betsy: you inspired me!

It makes me think of the stillness that occurs before the start of something new. Lovely.

Perfect!!! I'd like to know what camera does he use.

California Girl said...

Kate: That's a very nice description.

Tanna: Thanks my friend.

Tomas: Muchas gracias. He uses a Nikon D200 with a Nikkor 35-70mm F2.8 zoom.
