When you think of perfect Fall scenes, a few elements come to mind – peak foliage on the trees, water to reflect those perfect Fall hues, blue skies with a hint of clouds, maybe a bench to sit on and take in the view….oh and a fountain…definitely a fountain!

I tried to capture an image of this pond last year but missed the peak Fall colors that year and ended up with a drab scene lacking most of the above elements.  On this particular morning (Wednesday, October 23rd), I arrived here at 11am after capturing the colors at Tedesco Country Club and later the fallen leaves at Ware Pond.  As you can see, I could not have asked for more picture-perfect conditions of a great Fall day in Marblehead.  Every element came into place perfectly and I found this composition to help highlight each piece.

It is scenes like this that remind me of why I started ‘Wednesdays in Marblehead’.  The goal will always be to try to capture the unique aspects of this town that make it an incredible place to call home.
