Looking west across Lake Champlain from Shoreham, Vermont one sees the IP paper plant in the Town of Fort Ticonderoga, NY.
The emissions from the plant are steam and condensed water vapor. The air temperature at that time of year was below freezing. The mid-afternoon sun combined with the approaching snow storm looming over the Adirondack Mountains provided the subdued background.
The freight in the foreground comes out of the Selkirk yards in Albany and is peddled all the way up to and then crosses into Canada at Rouses Point NY. The rails run right along Lake Champlain.
