Mill Pond Church  ~  May 13  [33]
13-MAY-2006 Greg Harp

Mill Pond Church ~ May 13 [33]

New London, Minnesota

It's been overcast and raining off and on all day. The sun managed to briefly break through the clouds just before setting over the horizon. Ansel Adams once said “Sometimes I do get to places just when God's ready to have somebody click the shutter.” I felt just like that this evening...

Debbie B. mentioned she'd like to see this church at night with the reflections, all lit up. So would I. I've never seen this church lit at night. Neither the church or the town wants to spend the money to light it.

But this is wonderful. Love the catch of light on the spire and its reflection.

wow Greg, I just love this shot, the Spring colors and that magical light are perfect.
I agree about the Ansel Adams phrase, I feel like that many times when that light hits just as you are standing there and disappears shortly after.
So glad you were there to capture the fleeting moment :)

You are very good at those reflection shots, and I especially like reflections!
What I especially like in this one are, of course, those very warm colours. I'm glad you had a little sun.

Maybe they could light it just for two weeks around Christmas. Have a fundraiser.
