Betty's Pond, Another Night Shoot for the Pond Tour

Betty and Ralph graciously allowed me to come photograph their pond this week. I have been working hard to get all the ponds photo'd so they could be put on the Austin Pond Society's website for the Pond Tour in July.

Betty works hard to keep the pond in good shape, and it shows. I enjoyed talking to Betty while she made small improvements to the pond as I took photos.

As the light from sunset faded, the lighting that Betty and Ralph had installed to accent the pond at night really showed off the best features. I have never seen a lighted fan in an oak tree before. Very unique!

Betty lit a row of candles on the patio table and I tried my hand at photographing them. Not bad for a first attempt, don't you think? The accents added to the calming sounds of the waterfall nearby. I could have just stayed a while and enjoyed!

But the time came when all the shots had been taken, and it was time to go. I would highly recommend this pond to anyone who is doing the Night Tour on Saturday July 18th. It is a treasure.
More later,
