About Today’s Photo:
We stopped by Shelburne Beach the other afternoon. The Lake Champlain water level is quite low right now at 93.86′ (the record low was 92.61′ above mean sea level on December 4, 1908.) There were numerous sandbars exposed going out past the usual pebble and stone shoreline. The sunlight dappled nicely as small wavelets lapped across the sand. The stone in this shot is Iberville shale, a distinctive dark gray and white shale streaked with calcite.
