Sun Setting on Lafayette, Cannon Mountain & Echo Lake

Franconia Notch, NH

Returning home from a day of photographing Lupines in the Sugar Hill/Franconia area, I saw the sky was coloring up and knew I would be passing Echo Lake. Pulled into the parking lot, walked to the beach, and got lucky ;-) 58 years ago I first skied these trails (not all were there at the time). The famous "Old Man of the Mountain" profile in rock, which fell down recently, was just out of view around Cannon Mountain.

Balanced composition and a touch of that magical light. Love the clarity of the water - did you use a polarizer?

Beautiful scene, Fred. Nothing like being in the right place at the right time.

Hi Fred!
What a beauty!...I envy you. I have not been out in a while....too busy at work as usual.
The colors and details, specially the tip of the mountain and the stones in the water give this
image such nice details. You certainly should be proud of it. One more of your many
great images. Congratulation.
Will stay in touch.

This is a super shot Fred, the composition, the colours and especially the light - everything adds up to one gorgeous pano! The greens are velvia-like and lovely!

Beautiful, Fred!! The greens are just beautiful and the late light on the left side adds so much. Nicely done.
