December Sunrise on Big Lake Wassookeag in Central Maine

Winter Wonderland on Lake Wassookeag

It is pure magic to come upon a scene like this. It certainly is appropriate to describe it as a winter wonderland. There was a recent snowstorm that lasted about two days leaving close to a foot of snow but before the ice had formed on the lake. This made it perfect for a sunrise reflection, especially with all of the trees appearing white. The brightness of the white snow can create a special challenge for getting the correct exposure with light meters. The trick is in knowing how they work.
