It rained again all day at work, letting up a bit at the end, and I thought things might have an interesting look up at the ponds in Savoy State Forest. So I went up there, threw on a pair of waders, and wandered around the shoreline of North Pond, stopping and hunkering over my camera when the rain thickened, setting up and shooting when it lightened up.
I was fortunate that the breaks were relatively crisp, allowing me to use hand-held filters without them getting overly wet.
A reflection and sedges in between bouts of wind:
High Country granite catches a maple leaf in a cove:
With each bout of wind a floatilla of fallen leaves paraded across the surface, passing through my tripod:
This little parting of the clouds brought a stiff breeze and a steady parade of surface confetti in the waning light:
That was a four second shot, and with the light disappearing and the rain returning, I made my way back to the car.
And that’s what I got.
