10.31.2016-2 Owens Pond Foliage

My goal with the vacation was to spend as much time as possible in the Quabbin watershed and, with a one day exception, that is just what I did.  Here is one of a couple of images from that one day spent around town and, more specifically in this image, at Owens Pond.

  1. Glorious. It is a great idea, to explore the watershed.

  2. Nice depth to this one. Beautiful spot. I hope the water of the pond itself is somehow protected from the development nearby.

    Beautiful, and very hard to imagine there is so much development nearby.

    It’s always good to see areas that are able to provide some balance between expansion and conversation. Maybe images like this will help continue that. Nice work.

    I saw some lovely ponds on my trip, but every one of them was foggy and green. The effect is, shall we say, rather different. That makes it even more delightful to come home and find your reminders of the autumn season — where it looks like autumn’s “supposed” to look. What a wonderful week that must have been.

    • I agree autumn should look like autumn and, to be honest, I was quite surprised to find so many colorful scenes as our drought, which continues yet, had been expected to diminish the intensity. It was a very enjoyable week.

    Looks like a great spot for a picnic and maybe a bit of a slow paddle in a small canoe.
