In 2007, my friend Mark and I headed north for the North Country Moose Festival.  Mark had exhibited there several times and I went along although I had exactly one moose photograph to peddle. Obviously, being next tent to a pro didn’t bode well for my sales. But my main goal was to reach the head of the Connecticut River.  That didn’t happen either but I did get to visit Lake Francis which is just south of the four Connecticut Lakes that are the beginning of the river.

So I visited the moose festival and all I got was this dawn image of a lake.  🙂

  1. With as pretty a dawn image as that, you could vamoose and go home with no regrets.

    • And I did just that. I did actually sell a couple of matted prints and greeting cards but they didn’t add up to enough to pay for the first night’s meal that kept me up all night.

    A beautiful soft dawn to soothe the tearful eyes. If you told me there was a moose swimming in the distance I would believe you, Steve.

    That combination of lavender and peach isn’t common around here, but I love it, especially when it’s as delicate and widespread as it is here — not to mention doubled in the reflection. I used to have a Liberian tie-dyed dress is exactly those colors: a nice memory to go with a lovely photo.

    • I haven’t seen another sky like this since. I wish that we had more time to explore the lakes but the festival started early. Someday I hope to get back up to the river’s source. It starts pretty much just across the border with Canada.
      Maybe we should superimpose you into the scene.
