It’s All In The Timing.
There are two times during the year that I make sure to always have my camera in my car during the work week. In late winter and summer the days are just the right length where sunset roughly coincides with the time I get off work at my day job.
As luck would have it, my drive home brings me by this wonderful scene overlooking the Bellamy Reservoir in Madbury, NH.
When I saw the look of the sky as I was getting into the car I knew I’d be stopping on my way home. Luckily the ice was still plenty thick enough to walk on as the shoreline brush makes getting a clean foreground all but impossible.
The recent weather also helped when it came to making interesting photos here. Since there really isn’t anything of great interest to utilize as a foreground in my photos, the recent warm weather left the ice covered in pools of meltwater surrounded by some very interesting textures to work with.
So for the next few weeks I’ll have my camera with me, every day during the workweek. Not just on the weekends as I do during the rest of the year.
