Chautauqua Lake Sunset

Posted on Feb 3, 2016

So, I can’t let Scott have all the fun shooting beautiful sunsets and felt that Chautauqua Lake was in need of some representation on the web.  With that said, as soon as I got home from the office last night I grabbed my camera and ran to the water’s edge to capture this off of Bemus Point. With all the ice still on the lake, despite the warm temperatures we have had as of late, the withering sunlight was aglow across the frozen body of water. As the ice has sealed off food resources for many waterfowl, it has left the lake rather quiet and barren. However, taking in the stillness and quietness of the lake wasn’t such a bad thing and I hope wherever you are, you may drink in moments such as these this winter season!
