An April Morning: Whiteface Mountain from Copperas Pond

DA020318

It still looked quite wintry in this view of Whiteface Mountain from Copperas Pond on a mid-April morning. The crocuses are bloming in our backyard in Brant Lake, and I heard the first peepers here on the lake last week, but there’s still a good layer of snow and ice in the High Peaks region. This photo was taken about 6:20 AM. I had along my Nikon D300S and was shooting some angles with that also, but this was taken with my Nikon Coolpix P7700, 6 mm (28 mm full frame equiv.), 1/15 sec at f /4, ISO 160.
