I made this photograph last fall on Nichols Ledge above Nichols Pond near Cabot Vermont. I reached this view after a short 1/2 mile walk through the woods.The ledge was very high above the lake and provided a beautiful view around the lake and beyond. The wind was screaming that day. It was all I could do to keep my balance on the very skinny ledge beneath my feet. I had to increase my iso and shutter speed in order to stop the wind blowing the trees. There was also a lot of contrast as the sun got lower in the sky, so I used a soft edge 3 stop ND filter.
