Vernal Pool. April 21, 2011

Here are two shots I took last evening of a Vernal pool in Shelburne.

It was nearly dark as I drove past a reflection in open woods.  Being me, I stopped and backed up to see what I had nearly missed: a Vernal pool choked with fallen leaves.  I set up rather quickly, as the light was fast disappearing, and snapped a couple of quickies off…  well actually, “quickies” is relative; the set-up was quick, the exposures were long – 15 and 30 seconds long.

First, a color shot in landscape orientation:

…and second, a black & white portrait:

Both of these shots were inverted before “printing,” as you can tell if you study the details (such as the leaves floating in the upper corners.  This is more obvious in the color shot.)  The B&W is my favorite; it somehow “feels” very old to me.

I was pleasantly surprised that these came out, as it was nearly dark and difficult to focus.

A black and white from this afternoon:

This was an interesting site, recommended to me by Susan.   She’d spied it up in Bernardston, don’t ask me how, and I was glad to find it in good light.

Here’s a color shot:

Rusted, glassless and wrapped in vines.  But still muscular and elegant in its proportions.

This spot has more photographs in it, and I hope to get back there soon.
