The best part is that I rarely see what I expect

This morning I went with friend Lisa Lacasse out to shoot the sun rising over the White River near Sharon, Vt. When I left my Woodstock house, the sky was clear but there were patches of fog. When we got to the river, it was totally fogged in and didn’t look like the sun would pop through any time soon. So we headed up out of the river basin and over to a property I have access to in Pomfret.

There are two ponds with very different looks. One is very small and has a patch of birch trees that reflect nicely in the pond during the early morning. I like the look of the reflection I got there, it has a Monet feeling with the colors blurring in the ripples and the strong diagonal of the trees.

We went to the larger pond and there was a mist rising that was accentuated by the strong backlight. My photo of the dock invites me to sit there all day.
