I grew up near Niquette Bay and visit the new state park often to hike and shoot photos. I found one of the best look outs in the state viewing Mount Mansfield with no obstructions here. After I discovered the spot I researched the light and found that a good sunset would light up Mansfield perfectly. I had tried to get there several times and for one reason or other the light just didn’t do what I thought it would or weather blocked my efforts. The night I shot this was the exception with clear skies, warm temperature and mild winds. The light did something unexpected by dancing through the hills in front of Mansfield until it reached the summit. I have seen the sun set on Mansfield from other locations and although beautiful was nothing in comparison.
