Cormorants on old abandoned wooden bridge on Lake Champlain near Rouses Point NY

I love to take my kayak and paddle on Lake Champlain before the crowd. On this Sunday, water was calm and the only noise was produced by the paddles on the surface of the lake. From Rouses Point NY, there is an old abandoned wooden bridge where the cormorants are for the night. I let myself drifted close to the bridge and took the picture with my phone, in silence before leaving quietly.
