@Lake Waukewan, New Hampshire

There weren’t  many people around the lake. And while the few who were there,  were packing up to head home, she stood there at the end of the landing,  oblivious to the dwindling crowd around her, enjoying  a quiet cloudless sunset on a rather chilly October evening, enjoying her solitude.

In response to the weekly photo challenge: Solitude

Shaftsbury Lake, Vermont (3)

Here are some pictures from the remaining part of the trail. With hanging bridges, and board walks, and more colorful reflections on water all around and an assortment of mushrooms, it took me forever to finish up the last quarter of the trail. I was stopping at almost every step, either to take pictures or just take in the scenery or admire the little umbrellas that have popped up at the oddest of places.

Shaftsbury Lake, Vermont (1)

We were driving by Vermont this past weekend, and stopped by the welcome center near Bennington, VT. We just had half a day and the lady there suggested this small trail (a little over a 3/4 mile I would say). The trail is beautiful.

We were there on a rainy day, but I assume the water is mostly still on the calmer sunny days. I did catch some reflections of the fall colors in the lake though.

The rail trail right next to the park is an amazing spot to get some good pictures too.

Maine by the Night & Day

Imagine walking out of your house to a view like this, as beautiful by the day as it is by the night. I could live there forever. All that was  missing was a telescope and some hot chocolate. 🙂 

We were in Bar Harbor, Maine for the Acadia Night Sky festival, and though both the scenery and the night sky from all other spots in the Acadia national park is spectacular it was super cold for this time of the year. Well, we were  lucky!  All we had to do was to grab a chair and walk a few steps from our room to enjoy the night sky (of course the cloudless sky was a blessing :))

In case you are wondering, we stayed here for the weekend. Bar Harbor, ME
