The Village of Lake Placid is near the center of the Town of North Elba, 52 miles (84 km) southwest of Plattsburgh.

Lake Placid also hosted the 1972 Winter Universiade and the 2000 Winter Goodwill Games.
There are plenty of places in town to do some quaint town images. There are several lakes in the region, but they can be plain at times except during fall foliage. Be sure to get up for sunrise and catch the mist on the lakes in the morning that is when you will get your dynamic images. Reflection Lake is spectacular in the fall with the reflections. Do not go without a circular polarizing filter. See our page to purchase them. There are moving streams and waters here to do long exposure photography. We like Ausable Chasm, The Gorge and The Natural Bridge. They are all close to this area.
Don’t forget this is a dark sky area to do milky way photography. Go at the right time! See our Night Photography Section.
