ECF: Pond in Hancock, NH


Hancock - pond

This is my favorite photo from our New England Foliage Trip of 2006. And I took it with my (apparently not-so) crappy phone camera. I'm pretty sure this is from my most recent phone camera. I can tell from looking at the various phone photos which of them came from the old (first phone camera) and which from the new. The old ones look kind of neon and overexposed. The new ones look pretty true to color.

If only I had a higher resolution version of this, I'd print it and frame it - it looks like one of those 1000-piece jigsaw puzzles.

And I'm not 100% sure it's a pond. Northeastern landscapes are funny - a big outcropping of water could be a pond or a lake, or just a place where a creek widened out and became a river or something. But it was so beautiful in the morning light.

Pretty pictures! Not bad for a cell phone camera!

Ooh, that's not so far from where I live. I've never been to Hancock, though. If that's the pond that's quite near the center of town, the map calls it Norway Pond.

What awesome pictures! I don't think I've ever taken any that good, and I'm here for leaf season every year.

Wow, the blue of the water is so intense! I'd never have guessed that was a phone camera shot.
