Winter Mosuam

Roger’s Pond Park in Kennebunk is just a little patch beside the river Mousam where there is a town owned skating pond, but it provides about the only easy, public access to the river in a 20 mile stretch. It is a favorite fishing spot too. This day there was a casting derby going on up at the north end of the park. I take a lot of pictures there. It had just about stopped snowing for the moment (another squall came as I was about to leave). I love the silvery color of the water in winter…and in this shot there is just enough color in the evergreens and the few leaves clinging on from fall to offset the blanket of clinging snow.

Sony DCS H50 at about 100mm equivalent. F4.0 @ 1/320th @ ISO 100. Programmed auto.

Blackpoint right in Lightroom. Added Fill Light to bring up the color. Added Clarity and Vibrance. Sharpen Landscapes preset.

    Beautiful photo and a favorite spot of mine as well. The ‘fishing derby’ you mentioned was actually a group of anglers that meet there every year (for the past seven years) on the first weekend of January. They start at 6am and quit in the middle of the afternoon.
