Title:
Waterfront from Battery Park
Town:
Burlington
County:
Chittenden
State:
Vermont
Date:
2006?
Description:
This photograph documents the Burlington waterfront from Battery Park. In the foreground a variety of deciduous shrubs crowd the bottom right hand side of the photograph, slightly blocking the view below. At the bottom of the hill a terraced park sits under a few inches of snow adjacent to Lake Champlain. In the bottom left hand corner of the photograph runs a paved road and a set of railroad tracks lined with wire fencing. The park consists of open space; a few paved (and shoveled) walking paths, some art, a flagpole, and a variety of deciduous trees. Large utility poles can also be seen, and their wires can also be seen running across the bottom of the photograph. On the left side of the photograph is the Burlington Boathouse and the Ethan Allen can be seen covered in snow and closed for the winter. Beyond these structures is the Burlington breakwater, which forms a man made zigzag on the surface of the lake. Surrounding the lake in the distance are predominantly forested hills filled with a mix of conifer and deciduous tree species. All hills that appear dark in this photograph are located in the state of Vermont. The large peak in the background that is partially obscured by haze (Far left) is Mt. Philo.
