Today was my second visit to Carter Pond which is within the Rock House Reservation that is a property maintained by The Trustees of Reservations and located in West Brookfield, MA. I posted a few from here back in 2011. Today was overcast with a light drizzle giving the pond a more subdued light than the warm sunrise of yesterday at Quabbin.
I was tempted to just stay home and keep at it with the new computer, but the foliage is not here for long so any time spent out enjoying it and making a few images is time well spent. And, in an area like this that is surrounded by tall trees, the light is more even and balanced on a day like today. I just had to try to keep the sky out of the image as it was white and quite distracting.
I find these rocks quite interesting. The pine tree is growing on the backside of the left rock and who knows how successful it will be, but I have seen some trees grow a long root that goes down ledges to the ground so who knows. It may outlast me.I also explored the rocks that give this property its name (which was a challenge for a claustrophobic like me…think something akin to a slot canyon), but haven’t got a handle yet on how I wish to photograph it. One day soon, though. This link will give you an idea. See the 3rd and 4th pictures down.
