Hiking back along the trail from Borestone Mountain I paused to stop and enjoy the afternoon reflections along Sunrise Pond. In the summer the dock is out but had been taken in for the winter. I climbed up to take in the view and captured this first image. The reflection and the beautiful vibrant blue and wispy clouds drew me in. I really was interested in capturing the day drawing from my interest in working with the reflection independently.

Both of the next two images really draw out the beauty, grace, and calm of the day. This was my third time to Borestone Mountain Audubon Sanctuary. I have now seen its beauty through three seasons and look forward to what I will experience this winter. This place holds special meaning to me and is a hike that I always find such beauty in seeing, exploring, and playfully experiencing. I find that I enjoy and often capture the more "classic" shots. When I stay in the moment and follow what my eye sees and how my body reacts and interacts with the natural landscape I am best able to create images like these. The natural world provides so many images within an image. Next time you are outside try looking for the images within the landscape that draw you in and take a minute to stop and soak in the images within the image of the day.
