Lake Placid (August 2008)

It’s the middle of winter here in New York State, and most people associate Lake Placid with the Winter Olympics. Well, several months ago — during the warm summer respite — on a beautiful summer weekend we spent a few relaxing days in this quiet town located in the middle of the Adirondacks. I wanted to post these here much earlier, but hey… it’s been too cold. :-)

Below are a few of the many pics I snapped, and the entire photo album is viewable at my photo gallery.

    Whoa! Those are crisp and beautiful pics! As a resident of CA I would like to think that we have a monopoly on mountain beauty, but boy am I wrong. Seems like you all had a nice time. Cool!

    gorgeous pix Steve!!! We have been joking around here that CDA must be turning into Buffalo or something. In fact, your uncle Moses made a joke about that. I haven’t seen this much snow in a very very very long time. It brings back happy memories of shoveling out one’s own on street parking spot and staking it out so no one else will take it.
    hope you guys are well…

    Thanks for all the comments!!! The more I play with my CanonG9 the more I love taking photos.

    In Lake Placid those magenta flowers were a big challenge. They were literally SO vivid that it became tricky to not let their color desaturate the rest of the photo. I should try a little post-processing with them and see what I can concoct! :-)

    I can not help noticing the vividness of colors, it is probably a very specialized purpose, because these frames are impressive and very clear. I’m also looking for a professional camera, because every time I go in hiking, I am witnessing some visual magic moments, that I would like to immortalize.

    Wow, lake Placid seems like such a nice place. The last place i visited and had a similar beauty was lake Garda in Italy. Such a vast spread of water that leaves you speechless. It was very relaxing to look at and gaze into the sunset.
