Skating Lake Champlain Vermont

No Comments Dog Pics, Featured Post, Lake Champlain, people winter, Piper/Photo Dog, Shelburne, Vermont, skating, sports, winter scenery Purchase these photographs »

It’s been so cold this winter that Lake Champlain has frozen over completely, and it froze as black ice, very beautiful. So skating on the open lake is a great photo op, especially with Piper Photo Dog at sunset time, with the light ever changing. All photos, Nikon D-610 with 28-300mm zoom lens, ISO 400, shutter 1/500, F/16 at 28mm, F/20 at 34mm, F/14 at 160mm, F/10 at 32mm, F/10 at 34mm, and F/10 at 28mm.

It’s been a very cold winter here in Vermont, but there is always something interesting to photograph no matter the weather. Lake Champlain is now totally frozen over for the second year in a row, and that means the iceboats are out enjoying the beautiful conditions. All photos, Nikon F-100 with 70-200mm lens.

It’s getting so cold, like below zero cold and Lake Champlain will not hold out much longer before the whole thing freezes over.  That transition is a beautiful thing to photograph, especially at sunset time as in these photographs taken on the Shelburne Farms shoreline looking west to the Adirondack Mountains. All photos Nikon D-610 with 28-300mm zoom lens, ISO 400, Shutter 1/500, F/16 at 35mm, F/8 at 300mm, F/8 at 190mm, F/9 at 300mm, F/5.6 at 190mm, F/8 at 170mm, and F/8 at 28mm.

The sub zero temps have been making some great ice photography, especially at sunset time. The trick to staying warm with a temp of -5  with wind blowing is keep moving and don’t loose your gloves. All photos, Nikon D-610 FX with 28-300mm zoom lens, ISO 400, shutter priority set at 1/500, F/9 at 250mm, F/5.6 at 230mm, F/6.3 at 230mm, F/7.1 at 210mm, and F/7.1 at 300mm.
