Photographer's Note

This is one of two images in this series. This is Owasco Lake (oh-WAHS-coe) in the Fingerlakes of upstate New York at about 10:00 PM. In the summer, all the cottages on the lake have fires on the beach and the rim of the lake glitters. This particular night was extra special with the moonlight being so bright. The beach is at the bottom of a 30 foot bank that leads up to the cottage by steep steps. This shot was actually taken through the trees on the bank at the top of the stairs. I, my wife and friends were having our own fire and Margaritas on the shore at our place. It was a very fun night. This is a special place for me. This image was reworked in PS to be a square format (my favorite for some unknown reason) and to darken the blacks so much of the image falls into nothingness. There were highlights on the branches of the tress that I felt distracted the focus and overdefined the shot.
