“Storm Clears on Lake Winnipesaukee”


“Storm Clears on Lake Winnipesaukee”

After a long day of exploring, we headed back to our hotel, to clean up and dry off before heading out to dinner. As we pulled into the parking lot I could not help but notice that the clouds were starting to clear and there was a potential for a sunset in store!

I quickly grabbed my gear, and headed back into town to find a spot along the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee. Normally, I use a wide angle lens, but after only a few shots I knew it just was not working. While the shots were coming out nice, they were not capturing the magic of the light as the storms clouds departed. I instead used a telephoto lens to reach across the lake and capture the beautiful show nature was putting on. It only lasted a few minutes, the perfect combination of the sun dipping below the horizon as the storm clouds moved across the lake, but those few moments more than made up for a day of rain!
