Misty early morning photography from Jamaica Pond in Jamaica Plain of Boston. Since the first time I saw this tree in the middle of Jamaica Pond I have been fascinated by it. My wife Helen and I sometimes walk around the pond for a stroll and I often think about how to capture this tree at its most beautiful. I never succeeded or even really tried since the shoreline behind is covered with the boat house and residential buildings. Last year though, on a foggy morning, I decided to make my way over to the Boston Arnold Arboretum for a photo excursion. When I turned the keys to start up my car that morning I already knew that I was in for a special treat. When driving up the road leading to Jamaica Pond I saw heavy fog across the pond. Excitement immediately rose and a smile crossed my lips. When I finally turned around the corner to the main pond road the perfect picture arose out of fog. Best of all there was no distracting background. I instantly made a u-turn to park the car, pulled out my tripod from the trunk and walked down to the shoreline and followed the dirt path around the pond looking for the best composition. I didn't need to walk far and only a few joggers passed me I set-up the tripod, composed my image a little bit off center and included the tree reflection. The focal length was zoomed to about 80mm and the aperture setting was f/5.6 resulting in a shutter speed of 1/13 sec. Once I knew I had my image I took a deep breath of joy and moved on to my original destination, the Boston Arnold Arboretum.
