Revisiting a perfect morning at Job's Pond

As the nights start to cool, I have begun to think about Fall and its colors. I decided to go back through last year's images and instantly went to my favorite shot. It was only through the Scenes of Vermont Forums that I even knew about Jobs Pond and, on an early morning (Oct 2nd, 2012 to be precise), I headed out and found this scene before me.

I had shared a similar shot last year but found this image taken immediately before and used some newly learned techniques to try to bring out the subtle colors in the low lying cloud. Hoping for a great season and will be coming back here to get some scouting reports.

Hopefully this image will light up some excitement about finding these perfect moments.

A truly beautiful shot. Reminds me of Carol's Seyon Lake scene!

Thanks guys

CTYanky - looking forward to shooting Seyon Lake (Groton - right?) this year

WXMAN76 - Seriously! Sky was blue for 10 minutes of the entire 48 hour journey up and back from North Shore of MA.

Utah Baker - Glad it worked. Hoping for an awesome season.

Eyal: Yes, Seyon Lake is in Seyon State Park near Groton. A true paradise. I was so inspired by Carol's incredible shots last year I corralled Charles into taking me to the park during our day trip. I was totally mesmerized strolling around the lake and boat dock. Although Carol hit it on a better weather day, Charles and I made the best of the fog and drizzle and got some great photos in spite of the lack of blue skies and sun. I hope Carol can come on and post what I think is the best of her best shots of the lake with the peak foliage in the background. There is a small boat dock in the foreground with two Adirondack chairs facing the lake. We got the lake when it was clear as glass. There are many white birches which add to the beauty around the lake.

I didn't want to leave! Charles had to drag me away! There is also a lodge there to stay. I think Seyon was a highlight of my trip last year. You won't be disappointed! Charles walked around the lake area and explored a bit and he also got some super photos on his website. I remember that I kept looking back at the lake reflections with the color and thinking, "Am I really here?" Carol can attest to the fact that this may have been her Vermont moment of 2012!!!!! Maybe we can squeeze this in again during our farm stay in October!

P.S. If I remember correctly, there "may" be a nominal admission to the state park but believe me, it is worth every penny.

By the way, your website is awesome! I will spend more time on your other photos but concentrated on the Vermont foliage first!

Hope to hear about your upcoming trip to Vermont!

Here is Carol's post from last year: just found it! Carol, hope you don't mind! I am your biggest fan! :D

Thank you guys. I marked both on my DeLORMA map. Jobs pond near Island Pond; Noyers Pond near West Groton. Now, may I ask a practical question - Roughly speaking, in Northern Vermont in October, "early in the morning" means 6 AM or earlier? Just get some idea.

Great shot.

I was at the exact same spot, the same day, about 2 hours later. Missed that lovely pink cloud, though I saw others at Lewis Pond overlook. :)

That spot was probably the most brilliant color of what was a really great year.
