TCC for 8/30/10:
Today's sunrise was pretty much exactly the same as yesterday's so there was no point in photographing it. Yesterday's sunset was fixing to be rather unremarkable so the Caretaker decided to take some late evening shots that aren't particularly special but it will allow the Caretaker the opportunity to share with those who don't know the names of some of the mountains along the East shore.
The view looking up the Lake from Cocktail Point, to the left is the Tongue Mt. range. From left to right after the Tongue Mt. range is Black Mt., Shelving Rock, Erebus Mt., lastly is Sleeping Beauty.
Black Mt. in the center, the highest mountain on the shores of Lake George, also somewhat in view are the shadows of the Tongue Mt. range on the Black Mt. area, this is called the artist's hour, the Caretaker has some better photos of this in his archive, he'll have to dig them out.
In the foreground is Shelving Rock, the steep stone cliff face, just beyond to the right is Erebus Mt.
The gull in this photo is just over the peak of Erebus. To the far right, the exposed cliff face off in the distance is Sleeping Beauty.
Part of Sleeping Beauty is visible on the far left, to the right is Little Buck Mt., then some unnamed peaks, on the right, the tallest peak in the photo is Buck Mt. In the foreground is Dome Island, it is uninhabited by humans.
Originally the Caretaker had intended on sharing a very amusing example of his social awkwardness that occurred yesterday but unfortunately he received a phone call this morning that has given him reason to rearrange his schedule for the day and deal with something he hadn't accounted for, thus, his time has run short. But fear not dear reader, come tomorrow's post you will be able to read more from "The Awkward Misadventures of a Social Misfit".
In the meantime perhaps you'll enjoy a collection of sunset photos from the archive:
In this photo, in the bottom third, the rocks beneath the water can be seen:
The photo below was taken the day the Caretaker's Grandmother on his father's side passed away.
The photo below was taken from Grand View Point on Greenwood Lake, N.Y.
And back to Lake George:
Before there was the blog the Caretaker sent out posts via e-mail, the following is from the Caretaker's second winter on the Island:

Well Hello Strangers,
Sorry it has been so very long since I have last sent out an IR, I would love to be able to say that I have been just lazy about the IR's but the truth is that I have been rather busy with work on the Island and a few personal projects. To be honest, there hasn't been all that much to report since my last IR and as far as photography there have been maybe a total of 5 or 6 days worth bringing out the camera for.
