With some nice snow on the ground and the sun peaking through overcast skies here and there, we gathered some friends and set out for Tupper Lake to check out the 6th annual Tupper Lake Brew-Ski.  Held at the town’s James C. Frenette Sr. Recreational Trails and golf course, the concept was simple – snowshoe or cross-country ski the trails on the golf course and stop at the stations set-up along the way to sample some tasty local craft beers.  Even fat tire bikes are made available for rent by High Peaks Cyclery during the event. As we pulled up to the golf course, we realized the Brew-Ski was attracting far more people than we were anticipating - cars lined the roadway and the line to buy tickets curved from the clubhouse down to the parking lot.  


We gathered our crew (Lucy and her pup friend Wilson included!) and our cups on a lanyard and after watching groups of people continually start the mile and a half trail to the left, we went to the right.  Our first stop was Raquette River Brewing which had a porter, an IPA, and a sour to choose between. Thus we began our trip from station to station - tasting great beers, warming ourselves by bonfires, and socializing with others out enjoying the day.  As it turned out, starting the opposite direction helped us avoid too many lines, but it did mean that as we reached the last stops on the tour, some of the breweries had run out of beer and had to pack up shop. All in all, it was a fun day filled with families, friends, and pups all getting out to enjoy a winter day.

One of the best parts about owning a canoe has been that in addition to transporting me to previously inaccessible locations for photography, the canoe itself makes for an entertaining photo subject and has been my photography muse this summer.

Behind the Shot: Altered Mind State

My favorite waterfall photos are often taken while standing right in the water, and this one was no exception. This helps to get the viewer closer to the action and make them feel as if they’re about to get wet themselves.
