Clouds Over White Lake – Acrylic/Metal

Rocco Chiara
This was the first time I had ever visited White Lake in Hope, New Jersey. The lake and the surrounding wildlife preserve are at about the same level, so the glassy water looks like a continuation of the shoreline. I remember taking a lot of photographs as I walked around, but I wasn’t satisfied with the look that I was getting. I waited a while for the light to tone down. Shortly before I left, I remember setting up my tripod at the shore of the lake and just as sunset was starting to wind down, an amazing set of clouds rolled in. A long exposure gave the water and clouds a bit of motion, turning the photograph into more of a painting.
