There’s a pond at one end of the Beech Forest trail in the Province Lands on Cape Cod. On a short bridge beneath some overhanging trees you can stand and look out past the lily pads at a serene, almost glassy pool.
That’s actually as far as I got along the trail, because it was really, really buggy. So I hung out on the bridge a while, observing.
The one upside to the bugs was that as they skimmed the water they made beautiful ripples that radiated out across the surface.
I didn’t realize just how still the water was until I looked at these pictures. Without the radiating circles, there would be no way to tell whether you were looking up at the trees or down at the water.
I tried to pick just one of these for the upcoming show but I could only narrow it down to two.
