Visiting a park on a dreary day

It's been overcast all day with rain threatening. I decided this afternoon to visit the nearby Caledonia State Park. The foliage has passed, but there are still some beautiful scenes at this pond along the Thaddeus Stevens Historic Trail. I was looking to capture the reflections of the trees in the still pond. I was drawn to the geometric forms of the downed tree and the intensely green grass at the edge of the water.

Surprisingly the same scene is also on Google Maps and you can drive up the road.

Test of Google Earth Tours

This was made using the place marks from my Aerial Photos field lab. No sound in this version.
