Spring color in Penfield Pond

I was paddling my canoe this week on a gray, colorless morning on Penfield Pond, a pretty stretch of water in the Champlain Valley found in the foothills above Crown Point.

My eye was hungry for any color and I found just a bit of it, just a blush of rose, down on the murky bottom.

I used a waterproof camera to snap this picture.  The water itself was so cold that it felt like someone was stabbing my hand.  –Brian Mann
