The Wonderful Seasons of Otter Pond
With the temperature at 28 degrees and a high bank of icy clouds, winter has arrived on Otter Pond. This panorama was made this morning and frost was on the blackberry vines. Four Wood Ducks had just flown away, and the wind was calm. The next photo was made during the last snow at the pond in January, 2011. The pond was frozen over.
The diversity of color and texture from season to season has always facinated me. This small two acre lake never disappoints me, and the constant parade of water fowl, sunrises, and leaves makes every morning special.
