I’ve included a few of our favorites from the 2005 Annual Lake Hopatcong, NJ, Antique and Classic Boat Show.

First, the very bright day presented some shooting challenges. Its pretty tough to control blown highlights when many of the boats have 10-12 coats of varnish!

Hope you enjoy them as much as we did.

A great day at the lake:

Larry, great shots of some terrific boats, grew up in Lake Hopatcong area and have a son living about a mile away. He tells me the lake gets more and more crowded every year. Doesn't look to bad from your pics though.

Thanks for sharing.

Cory,

This year's show did include more Chris~Crafts than I've seen in the last four years, particularly in the 1930s range.

Jack,

Sue and I really enjoy the Mt. Arlington area- well worth the drive from Connecticut.

Thanks for your comments

Larry,

Great shots. Glad the show went well for you.

Unfortunately, I didn't get there til around 3:30 in the afternoon. My younger daughter was moving and it took a little longer than anticipated.

Judging by your first shot, there were a lot more boats there earlier. When I got there, I was a little disappointed. Guess a lot left.

I stayed for about an hour plus. It was just too hot.

Should have my shots up in a day or two more.

Steve,

Sorry I missed you. Although a nice day, the temperature hit the 90s and apparently took its toll on some of the exhibiters.

Although the boats were center stage, my Nikon Cafe Cap certainly was the envy of the show - LOL

I look forward to seeing your photos.

-Larry
