Anyone local might know this spot, if they've ever wandered the trails at Burr Pond state park.
The trail around the pond is very active, as it was the day that I painted this landscape. I wandered with them, easel on my back, until this spot called to me. An elderly gentleman asked if I was going camping. Mind you, an easel looks nothing like a backpack and there is no camping at this park. This is one of the things I love about open air painting: The people you meet and the lasting smiles they give you. That and the giant rocks you can set up on to capture such reflections of nature.
