As you can see, the view of Mt. Tom from the 'west bank' of the Nashwannuck Pond is unobstructed once again. Seeing the American flag flying majestically over the pond is cool for a while, definitely around Memorial Day and even through July 4th, but I do miss being able to take shots of Mt. Tom that don't have to be Photoshop'ed to restore the natural view. How do you feel about that flag? Just curious.
I'll try to hold my commentary on that topic, especially since tension is already high with the city's crackdown on all the evil and hazardous sandwich boards in town.
On a lighter note, here are a few shots from today's little stroll around the pond. And another one of my nature videos.
Last I read in the Gazette, dredging of the pond is set to commence within a couple weeks. Perhaps we can consider these 'before shots'... You can be sure I'll be out there capturing all the dredging action. It's hard to imagine the pond all emptied out. I will miss the ice fishing action this winter. And the occasional skate around on the rare spell when the ice is smooth and snowfree.
