Lake George, Adirondacks, NY
There's often not much room to see anything other than the opposite shore, with the forest crowding the shoreline. But a little scene unfolded from this vantage point, shooting up the lake and including this near shore. In black and white, the image becomes more two dimensional, animating the snag that appears to be reaching for meaning in that sky, while the nearer trees almost reach for the wayward son. In this dimension, it is hard to tell what is out there--an approaching storm, sunrise, sunset? Even the reach of the lake is indeterminate. Things are not always as they seem.
