Smooth as Glass

Hartland, Connecticut

This is one of those images that was not planned and quite unexpected. In fact,  I had no intention of photographing anything, but it shows the merits of having your camera with you at all times. My wife and I decided to take a drive late one summer evening to places that we hadn't been to. As we drove around Hartland, CT, I drove past this scene and quickly jammed the brakes on. It is a wonder that Carol doesn't get permanent whiplash as this seems to happen whenever I spot a potential scene. 

As can be seen in this image, the light was perfect and the water was glass-like. I shot a number of angles, but this composition proved to be the best.
