Reflections on Green Turtle Pond

Lynne Robinson, Hewitt, New Jersey
Last Sunday we loaded up the canoe and drove the less than one mile to Green Turtle Pond. I just love having this small body of water so close to us. You can see how much the trees have changed at our house in the photo above.

It was a beautiful morning: blue skies and no wind. A perfect day for paddling!

The lake’s surface was very calm and perfect for reflecting the autumn colors.

A few other people were enjoying the beautiful morning too, mostly fishermen. Since Green Turtle is a wakeless lake, only trolling motors on boats are allowed. This makes for a very peaceful paddle.

As we paddled around I couldn’t decide how to place my camera. Should I take the sky and trees or should I go with the reflection? I have to admit that the the reflections won out over and over again.

Either way, the colors were stunning.

Paddling close to the shore I spied this beautiful paper wasp’s nest.

Some trees couldn’t decide what color to be.

We paddled into my favorite part of the lake, the little cove.

And with one last look, our little trip came to an end.

Spooky - I have just blogged about a hornets nest! Your trees are much further on than ours, how beautiful they look against the sky. Paddling along a lake would be a very good place to be right now…

Absolutely gorgeous! What a sky! Thanks for sharing.

As beautiful as your foilage is, I’m really impressed by the blues.  They really make all that color “pop”. 

It’s looks as though you had a beautiful and peaceful morning.

i can see how you’d get sucked into photographing those reflections again and again and again

just gorgeous

i like the photo with thefern especially

Just came over from PG’s to see the wasp nest. What wonderful colours, the blue of that sky is just amazing.

PG, yes that is spooky! Both blogging about the same thing!

Becky, thanks! We’ve been having those kind of skies lately. Spectacular!

Susan, yes, it was a gorgeous day in the respect. Perfect for photos!

Letty, that photo is Rick’s fav too!

Carolyn, welcome! Thanks for stopping by!

I feel serene just gazing at the pics. Wow. You know your readers are also grateful that Green Turtle Pond is so close to your house. All of us get the benefit of your canoe explorations.

Thanks!
