The lakes among the mountains of Maine are spectacular in their remoteness and wildness. Camps are set back in the woods on many of them, keeping shore views pristine. The many logging roads and paths that have been created over the years allow access to some of them, but paddling a kayak is often easier and enable exploration of hidden coves and shorelines. While not a fisherman, the jumping fish around my kayak on this morning made almost made a fisherman out of me! I used leading lines of the lichen covered rock to bring the eye into the image, and used the rule of thirds for placement of the other components. While the sky cooperated for color and reflection, I plan on returning during fall foliage for additional impact the scene may hold.
