Old maple tree that protects a wild life pond shadowed by a large lake. The area is a favorite place for a quiet walk to view fall color and see resident ducks, geese, owls and native birds of many different species. This shot was positioned to take advantage of the setting sun and the backlite to accent the expanse of the tree.
