Still water on Bubble Pond


This little pond has become one of my favorite places to visit, and after spending the pre-dawn at Otter Cliffs, I shared it with my photographer friend Josh. Nestled between Pemetic Mountain (1,248 feet), and Cadillac Mountain (1,532 feet), Bubble Pond is a glaciated valley that is now home to a beautiful and pristine pond.¬†Using a circular polarizer, I was able to eliminate some – but not all – of the reflections from the crystal clear pond water allowing views of the rocky bottom. The polarizer also removed the glare of the early-morning light from the trees hugging the rugged shoreline, and it enhanced the definition in the clouds. The intermittent sunshine breaking through the clouds made the scene come alive, and I was really attracted to how still the water was. Isn’t this place gorgeous?
