During the spring thaw of 2009, the water level of Whitney Point Lake rose and receded leaving a thin coat of lightly toned silt on shoreline rocks. Overnight, frost etched its presence into the mud. In the morning, I was lucky enough to find this place about an hour before rain washed it away. This scene has profound spiritual significance for me. After I made this photograph I felt that if I never made another, it would be okay because I had experienced this scene, this moment when everything came together.
"Spirit always stands still long enough for the photographer it has chosen."
