Island Sunrise

Grafton Pond NH

Grafton pond has only a few houses on it in one spot and the rest of the shoreline is owned by the NH Society for the Preservation of Forrests. I think the loons know this. Also only 6hp motors are allowed and very few use them. This morning with no clouds in the sky, it was chilly and in the 40's but the loons were noisy. This was a very lucky shot taken hand held in a canoe. Just before this shot there was no sun and no good shots. 30 seconds after the sun came up the scenes were "too hot" and the image were very contrasty. This was the only keeper of the day. But it answered requests from visitors to the gallery where my work is displayed, who wanted Grafton Pond images.

Well, we had to get up before dawn and it was cold loading and unloading the canoe off the car, etc. and we were done by 8:30 am as the sun was too "hot" for anymore images after this one.
