Harvard Pond is part of Harvard Forest, an experimental forest owned by Harvard University. It’s a lovely spot to watch the day begin, then wander a trail experiencing Nature in a peaceful environment.
I had an early morning errand to run, so didn’t really do a wander. But starting the day worked just fine.
Moving to my right wasn’t possible without adding some foreground mess so I embraced the branch even though it would generally be thought better not to have it interfering with the sun. I liked the light on the reeds and pads and can’t complain about a double starburst.
As I was leaving I made this image with the phone. Nice morning light as the sun climbed higher.
