Pond Skating in Marblehead

  • Kids and adults enjoy pond skating as well as a pickup hockey game on a frozen Redds Pond in Marblehead

Today’s image comes from my ‘to-be-posted’ archives from January 11, 2015. Many of my favorite images of Redd’s come from the month of January when the ice is typically perfect for skating and snow has not yet fallen to affect the surface.

I had gone to Redd’s on this afternoon to check on conditions and was delighter to find the ice bustling with activity. There were kids and adults skating across the small pond and a pickup hockey game was taking place as well. I decided to set up near the hockey goal and used a slow shutter speed to accentuate the motion and activity of the people gathered to enjoy pond skating in Marblehead.

As I post this, Redd’s Pond has not yet been iced in nor ready to skate for the 2018-2019 winter season…
