A Visit to Walden Pond

On July 24, I went to Walden Pond State Reservation in Concord, Massachusetts on a commission to capture incredible images of the pond made famous by Henry David Thoreau. I walked the entire length of the path around the pond (1.678 miles) in 94 F weather. While bathers wore clothing appropriate for the beach, I was covered practically head-to-foot to prevent tick bites as I was told they were very active there.  From 2:30 pm to 5:15 pm that day, I tried my best to capture the essence of the pond that was Thoreau's inspiration for his book On Walden Pond, and that he described as “lovelier than diamonds.” The photographs I took of the pond will enhance the lobbies and dental rooms of two new dental offices in Austin, Texas. The owner of the dental offices lived near the pond in Massachusetts and swam it innumerable times. He wants the photographs as a reminder of his favorite place and for which he has named his two offices, Walden Dental.

These are some of the images I captured that day. If there is a photograph of a specific theme or place you would like to purchase and do not see in the galleries on my website feel free to contact me as I have an extensive archive of photographs. I may just have what you are looking for.
