POTW: Chippewa Lake Amusement Park

This week I went to Chippewa Lake. It's been a spot I've been meaning to get to for a while. Late last year the owners started to open a part of it to the public. It's pretty much the only time you can see it now since apparently it's pretty well enforced on other days. It was also interesting talking to a couple people that actually ran the rides when it was in operation. Unfortunately I didn't think to get a picture of them in front of their ride.

This is the first actual location where I made heavy use of my polarizing lens. Not as easy as one would think to get that dark blue sky. Also I didn't notice till I got home but there was dust somewhere (that's the dark spot in the other photos). Had to clean everything twice before it finally went away. Chose the picture because most of the pictures I see are of the ferris wheel, roller coaster, or the tumble bug. A lot of the trees have been cleared away so I'm sure the parks days are numbered. Although I think they're going to keep a couple of rides like the ferris wheel when they build the park.

Rest of the pictures can be found here
