Pond View

This is a photo that I have always loved. I took this one a couple of years ago when I found this place. I remember finding a wooden walkway leading into what I thought would be a swamp. Then all of a sudden everything opened up to show the scene you see here. I couldn't have been more delighted by what I saw. It was exactly this.

The trees hid it all until the very last second. I really had no clue what I would find here. And that is the beauty of walking nature trails. It's an adventure every time, even when you know what is coming. But that first hike into a new place always has hidden delights. You can drive along the roads that surround this large pond and never know it's there. It takes a good nature hike to find this beautiful place. But now you get to see it's beauty too.

If you'd like to see more of my work go take a look at any of my three sites. I'm the editor here at Nature Center Magazine, and I also have two blogs. The Everyday Adventurer is my nature blog where I tell stories of my daily nature hikes and the things I encounter, with more photos like this one. Rat Tales is where I get to share some of the fiction that I write. No photos there though, just some very cool stories.
