Hastings Pond
Photo By Mark Friedman

  • Title: Hastings Pond
  • State/Province/Region: New York
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Hastings Trail
  • Nearest Town: Hastings-on-Hudson
  • Brief Directions: Follow the trail from any entrance and head towards the center. It's not far and it's well known.
  • Notes: In this case, although the scene was shot with color film, it felt better in black and white with a little toning.
  • Best Season: Spring
  • Description: The pond along Hastings Trail is one of my most favorite places of all time. I've photographed it throughout the year and it always has a homey feel. It easily lends itself to interpretation and I've shot it straight, with infrared in color, with rare-earth filters to enhance the colors, with polarizing filters to see through the water and with neutral density filters to help control the light. I almost always use a tripod.
  • Gear: Canon EOS 3, Kodak 400 UltraColor film, Nikon LS-5000 scanner

    Thanks Alena and David! I took a lot of shots of this landscape, but placing a person in the shot imparted the sense of amazement and exhilaration I was trying to capture. Merry Christmas!
