Sailboats on Lake Willoughby
Lake Willoughby is a dog-leg shaped glacial lake in Orleans County, on the western side of the Northeast Kingdom. It was carved by the action of ice sheets over thousands of years, resulting in a long, narrow, deep body of water with steep cliffs on the sides. In some ways, it's almost like a "freshwater fjord".
Because the lake is deep it stays very cold, and very thick fog tends to form on and around it that can last for hours after sunrise. I captured this pretty scene at the lake's south shore, where some sailboats (and other boats, as you'll see shortly) were parked.
