Prior to my visit to Mount Pollux on the 27th (yesterday), I thought Owens Pond in the Wentworth Farm Conservation Area might offer a nice start to the day. As I stood at the west end of the pond, it seemed unlikely that there was going to be anything special happening. The sky was clear and the horizon had a dull glow. But there were clouds to the north and they were drifting across the sky to the southeast. I was hopeful.
Two women walked by with their dog and asked what birds I was photographing. I explained the situation and they wished me luck. A short time later they returned just as some color was building under the clouds and joined me for a few minutes enjoying the show.
As with yesterday’s composition, I waited for the clouds to move to a better position. A little more to the right would have been good but, as they drifted, they dispersed and did not satisfy as much as here.I have a few favorite spots to visit throughout the year. Owens Pond is right near the top of the list.
