This is an image taken in 2007 with my D2x and a Nikkor 18 -200 f3.5-5 VR.
It was taken in Lake Placid New York in early October of that year at “John Brown’s Farm”.
This is the resting place of the abolitionist (and leader of the rebelllion at Harper’s Ferry). It is is now an National Monument.
The image depicts the contrast of “peak” leaf color at the farm’s 1800 ft of elevation, against a backdrop of the much higher terrain of Algonquin, and Wright’s Peak, which had already seen their first snow cover of the season.
It will will always be a striking memory of the beauty of the Adirondacks.
