Here is one of those less than successful images that on one hand works and on the other it doesn’t. The location is Bailey Pond in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont and it’s actually two ponds with two different names that are interconnected. It is difficult to find because the name of the road changes about 300 feet from its start. The road itself turns into several miles long, straight logging road with lots of huge, gnarly potholes. It is however isolated and quiet.
We have a nice Autumn scene with a beautiful reflection in the water however as you can see in the upper portion of the scene the sun came out. The way the clouds and sun are interacting caused the highlights in this area to be blown out with not much correction possible. I love the area here and have not been back since but this image makes me want to venture back there this fall. It’s like I have a task uncompleted here and I really would like to get a much better image.
