First photo of Bound Pond

Post by Matt Quinn » Sun Aug 19, 2018 2:43 am

I learned of a new place for landscape photos today and took this one just before a storm blew in and blew me home. Bound Pond is on the boundary between two towns, Dennis and Brewster where we live. Nothing special in the shot; just the start of a relationship. Matt

Keep working the area, you’ll find what it has for you in time. Those overlapping “islands” of bushy greenery in the background have some promise. Are the lilies blooming? If so, find a way to get nearer to them. One of my favorite subjects, even after the blooms are gone, because of the way water sits on the, the critters who hang around them, and their cool geometry. This shot looks a little off tilt, like it’s leaning down to the right. I’d try to avoid that long weed or wire that runs horizontally about 1/3 of the way up,
