Flooded Fields

Lac Saint-Pierre, is an area of the Saint-Lawrence River that widens enough to be called a Lake. In the Spring of 2011 the waters had swollen to the point of leaping over banks and flooding fields. A great visual opportunity for someone on a jon boat armed with a camera. May 2011. Nikon D300, Nikkor 28-300mm FX @42mm; f10, 1/500s ISO200   Copyright Fritschi © Photographs 2000-2014
