Nolde Forest Pond

Taking advantage of the real nice warm weather we have been getting the past 3 days here in PA, I drove over to the Nolde Forest Pond to see what it’s all about. I have never been here before and knew nothing about it prior to my visit. Finding the small parking lot I grabbed my camera gear and starting walking down a leaf filled trail that I assumed led to the Pond. Coming upon the small pond there was a wooden platform to stand on that over-looked the Pond. It’s not a very big body of water. Just a fair size pond. Standing here I had to look around me a bit to take in what might be there for my camera to capture. After about 3 minutes, I noticed the reflection on the water from the trees across the way. Pressed the remote shutter release to capture this in failing light.

Trees with the sun.

Still looking around I had turned to look behind me, and saw the sun a bit behind a tree. If I moved to one side or another, the sun was too bright. Went back to my original position and pressed the shutter button. Here I liked the sun shining behind the tree and on the Fall color of the forest.

Wooden bridge

I stayed where I was for a little bit, then started walking back the path that I had come from. This little bridge over a small stream was a bit on the wobbly side to cross over. Who built it, I don’t know.

Walking path.

The small parking lot is just around the corner to the right here. Wanted to catch more of the colors before they all fade away. This one was shot in HD.

Lens Ball.

Part of my camera gear that is always with me is my Crystal Lens Ball which can offer some different photo taking perspectives. Happen to notice some of the fallen trees around had heavy moss on them. Thought this might be a good place to set the ball on and see what can be done. One problem. I didn’t have the right Lens to capture this kind of shot, so I had to use what I had along with me. This one is not right and can be better. It’s much too blurry for what I want. Must remember to bring Lens along in my bag for next time.

Thank you for stopping by.
