Great light on this shot. Good work! Wayne
Thanks very much, Wayne! The timing of your comment is funny. I was out there yesterday, and am in the middle of sorting through some shots of Riceville Pond to see if any are worth uploading!
Riceville Pond looks like it's worth a visit. I may have been by it once or twice but not recently. I hope you have some shots you'll find to be worth posting. Wayne
thanks, wayne - Riceville is an interesting very shallow little pond mostly in Harvard Forest and state forest land, and pretty land-locked, so not at all easy to get to. I actually used to always think it was the same as Harvard Pond here, and was surprised once I finally looked at a map. I got some OK enough shots this week-end, but nothing really worth posting.
SRY my little sister did that. And well anyways I LOVE THIS PICTURE.
Hi, Rita. You must be pretty familiar with Harvard Pond and the Fisher Museum of Forestry. A wonderful area. Wayne
Well, a very late Thanks, Rita and Wayne. Hope you all made it through the ice storm before Christmas without too many hassles. Happy New Year!
Thanks, Bruce! This pond is within Harvard Forest, so other than a few stretches along Rt 122 its pristine. And there are some fascinating photos from this vantage point in the Fisher Museum Wayne refers to above that show it after the Hurricane of 1938, with most of the forest leveled by the storm. (There's actually some last remnants of blow downs from that storm over near the other pond shot you commented on - they were all pretty obvious about 15 years ago, but now the last hold outs are just about disintegrated. Though living trees still bear the signs of the damage. Not so long ago, a blowdown was cradled in that loop.)
