It was a great day for reflection. Scales Pond sat in the still air and the shoreline was repeated in its surface. Adding to the scene, the birds were busy, blue Jays, song sparrows, blackbirds, sang their tunes or chirped their time away as they flitted from tree to tree.
As I walked along the shoreline, the scenes were perfect, a huge tree reached high into the sky and across the pond.
This island looks to have more grass than it did in reality and the forest enclosed it.
Another island is surrounded by the trunks of trees.
A bird’s nest placed for the creatures has a partner.
The top of the pond reflects the setting as the trouters in boats are absorbed into the reflection.
Here the boaters are spread across the water as well as the trees behind them. The slight ripple on the water at this point added to the interest of the scene.
Finally, my favourite shot. The trees along the shoreline are mirrored to perfection as I stand in admiration on the opposite bank.
The natural world has a way to make us stop and take a deep breath every now and then.
