My trip to Moosehorn Pond was intentional and my plans there also although I was thinking of dragonflies which were not terribly abundant. The change is that I was going to do this as a “Silent Sunday” post but decided to say a few words about the image.
The water around here is quite acking. The only time I have ever seen this pond as low was after a beaver dam let go. Our lack of rain, Isaias offered us little, has caused many places to exhibit shallow water. That was the case at Poor Farm Swamp yesterday and even worse here. I should have shot what it looked like but didn’t. As you might imagine, yes, I did photograph a few bullfrogs but they will come later. I also shot a few more water-lilies and one feature of the lack was more shows in the image than usual. I generally try to isolate a flower in the dark water but that was not happening today. Sadly no dragonflies
I like the red stems floating at the surface which one doesn’t often see. The polarizer again helped darken the water which enhances those stems. I really didn’t have to do much processing here. Just a bit of highlight recovery.
