There is so much to see in the water. Jamaica Pond is always interesting – the ever-changing island and the landscape of ducks and geese and swans create elegant and simple panoramas. 

Lately, I have spent more time looking at the edges of the Pond. Thus a series of shots starting last fall and bound to continue through the seasons. It’s been a revelation to see the reflections of tree limbs and ripples of Pond water , so subtle, so quiet.

Now I seem to have come upon a new element, tiny roots growing into the water, showing up red and orange, not colors I usually associate with spring time. I’ve noticed the roots before but passed over them until yesterday when the color was so striking. Let me add this to the list of things I love about spring – the surprises, the exceptions that prove the rule!
