Fall Fog, Runaround Pond

It’s autumn in Maine at one of my favorite spots, Runaround Pond. Just before dusk I was headed west on my way back from somewhere else. Evening fog was just settling in as the light was fading. There were several other people taking photos. I didn’t have a tripod but still managed some good shots. There could have been a little more detail in the sky. I like the saturation of the leaves as the fog settles over the lake/pond.

  2. I do miss New England in the Fall – thanks for the memories. One thing, too bad that rock in the middle looks like it’s floating above the water, due to the shadow. Knowing me, I would choose to clone it out – that’s because I’m not that great a photographer and rely too much on Photoshop:)

  3. Thanks. In terms of composition, I could have treated this as a strictly reflection photo and cropped tightly on the trees and water reflection. It would remove the rock and the boring sky. It would also be a nice panoramic. Anyway, this is how it came from the camera, warts and all.

    • Sometimes warts can be beautiful – this was just an observation, by no means a criticism since I wouldn’t have even noticed. My eyesight is blind in one eye and can’t see out of the other. I often forget to use my polarizing filter and we are usually out in the middle of the day. Keep sending those shots, Victor.
