Driving home from Balance Rock State Park, I happened upon Lake Onota   This is what is so great about New England, and really any area of the country.  You can find the most beautiful places at the most unexpected moments.

A popular fishing spot, Lake Onota is a 617 acre pond located in Pittsfield, Massachusetts.  It flows into the Housatonic River which eventually drains into Long Island Sound.  Fishermen and women and boaters flock to Lake Onota for the bass, trout, walleye and crappie (yes they even fish for crappie fish).  

A roadway bisects the lake.  Of course, typical of New England weather, while it was very cloudy on one side, the other side had nary a cloud.

Dogs like Lake Onota as well.  I met Becca, a happy 9 year old golden retriever,there.

About New England Nomad

Hi I'm Wayne. Welcome to my blog. I am a true New Englander through and through. I love everything about New England. I especially love discovering new places in New England and sharing my experiences with everyone. I tend to focus on the more unique and lesser known places and things in New England on my blog. Oh yeah, and I love dogs. I always try to include at least one dog in each of my blog posts. I discovered my love of photography a couple of years ago. I know, I got a late start. Now, I photograph anything that seems out of the ordinary, interesting, beautiful and/or unique. And I have noticed how every person, place or thing I photograph has a story behind it or him or her. I don't just photograph things or people or animals. I try to get their background, history or as much information as possible to give the subject more context and meaning. It's interesting how one simple photograph can evoke so much. I am currently using a Nikon D3200 "beginner's camera." Even though there are better cameras on the market, and I will upgrade some time, I love how it functions (usually) and it has served me well. The great thing about my blog is you don't have to be from New England, or even like New England to like my blog (although I've never met anyone who doesn't). All you have to like is to see and read about new or interesting places and things. Hopefully, you'll join me on my many adventures in New England! View all posts by New England Nomad
