Deep summer blues on Lake George: While Molly Kane of Maitland was visiting New York in July, she snapped a picture of Lake George from the outdoor dining area of The Algonquin restaurant in the tiny town of Bolton Landing. Lake George, often referred to as the Queen of American Lakes, stretches 32 miles from Lake George Village north to Ticonderoga and is three miles across at its widest point. The crystal-clear water is dotted with islands of all sizes that accommodate facilities from primitive campsites to the luxurious Sagamore Resort as well as private homes that range from seasonal cabins to mansions. In the foreground is an area of Lake George knows as Huddle Bay. The first land mass visible is Clay Island, and beyond that are the open waters of Lake George. The area is so beautiful that taking incredible scenic pictures is fairly easy:point and shoot, Molly said. The real task is picking the best shot when everywhere you look you are surrounded by beauty!"
