The photos in my SceneSets are usually presented mostly in chronological order, because I consider myself a "landscape photojournalist", and part of my goal in showing you my images is to evoke the sense that you're accompanying me on my journey. But I like to cheat once in a while, so I close this photographic sojourn through the Northeast Kingdom by returning to Noyes Pond, which was probably the favorite new spot I found on this trip.
This was taken on my last full day in northeastern Vermont, at around 5 o'clock am on a beautiful, still, clear morning. You can see some blur in the boats as they bobbed and shifted during this 14 minute exposure, which created longer star trails than you've seen in night shots elsewhere in this set of photos. As you may be able to tell from the semicircular pattern of the trails, the view is slightly west of north -- unfortunately, I just missed getting Polaris in the shot, which is slightly above the right side of this view.
