This past week was another hot one. I headed up to Lackawanna State Park on Tuesday evening, thinking that there might be some relief by the water, maybe a cool breeze. Wishful thinking – instead, the air was dense and swampy with humidity, so thick that you could see it in the sunbeams that cut through the forest. I felt like I should have been somewhere in the Deep South.
But aside from leaving me drenched and disgusting, it made for some great images. Like the one above, which is the trail leading to a small point that juts out into the lake. Every time I hike out here I shoot this scene, the trail leading through the hemlocks to the shore. Somehow I’m never quite satisfied with the results, although this time comes pretty close.
