Silhouette


This is only one of many wonderful lakes located in and around the Adirondack Mountains. Most are peppered with small islands and many of them are accessible state land. This shot has been software altered to "Up" the saturation a tad. That brought out the cloud reflections on the ice. It won many awards recently in flickr.com., ...but a slightly different version.

Cossayuna Lake... she is shallow and loaded with large mouth bass. It's an extremely popular bass fishing lake and this time of the year it is loaded with ice fishing shanties. Unfortunately the very overpowering weed, Millfoil, got into the lake and it has to be aggressively dredged and dragged by machinery. Millfoil is a threat to many small northeastern lakes.
