Hope you all had a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Busy times during the holidays have kept me from posting a new photo for some time, so here is my first pick to start off the New Year. When I first saw this photo I was indeed enchanted by it. While just a simple photo in many ways, this beautiful picture captures a small portion of one of Montreal’s most popular parks. The photo shows one of two man-made ponds located within Park Lafontaine in the city of Montreal. This particular pond is in the process of being drained in preparation for winter which is why the water is so low. What makes this photo interesting is the intense emotion created by the fog and lighting not to mention the reflections in the pond. It all comes together to add subtlety and create a very ethereal feel to the entire scene. The scene looks in many ways romantic, but also conveys a sense of loneliness and perhaps even foreboding, and indeed it is foreboding of the coming winter. Hope you enjoy this latest pick!
