First Place - May
Congratulations to Joe Jackson, the first winner of the Black Lake Association's Monthly Photo Contest sponsored by the Black Lake Chamber. The snow scene shows clearly that Black Lake can be enjoyed year 'round. There are footprints and recreational vehicle tracks in fresh snow showing winter-enjoyment of the lake. The composition is excellent with a nice juxtaposition of trees against the snow.
Second Place - May
Congratulations to Mark Hujar, May 2016, 2nd place winner. The Black Lake shoreline illustrates how different the lake is from nearby Adirondack lakes--no mountain backdrop on either shore. It's a nice differentiation of this last of the Indian River lakes in the chain. It also gives a good idea of the vast area of the lake.
Third Place - May
Congratulations to Joe Jackson, May 2016, 3rd place winner. This photo shows a variegated sky at sunset through shoreline vegetation lining one of the quieter bay areas of the lake. It illustrates that the lake can be more personal and not as daunting as a big wide-open lake might otherwise be.
