The Farm Pond
Otsego County, NY.
Cooperstown is not all that far from where I was raised, and when in the area I often take back roads and get lost for awhile. There is a lot of forest broken by cleared farmland, rolling hills that often have surprising views at the crest. The farms have charachter, more often family operations that have yet to succumb to selling out to the big factory farms. In the township of Hartwick, this place was nicely situated on a verdant ridge, trying out some red paint and checking out it's own reflection in the farm pond.
