Hike Elk Lake trail apx. 5 miles to vicinity of photo location
All seasons are phenomenal in the Adirondacks, but in the winter you may not see another person for days away from the most popular trails. As I did on this trip.
On the morning of the third day of a solo winter trek, weather that denied me good light previously began to break at dawn. The powerful winds blew snow around and slightly blurred the quickly moving clouds with a slower shutter speed.
