I had originally intended to title this “Mount Pollux Twins” but in posting it on Facebook I was excoriated for that as they are different ages and have dissimilar shapes as well. Ah well, it was only intended as a bit of humor at the Greek mythology of Castor and Pollux. Humor is never very good if it needs explanation, I guess.
Mount Pollux is a favorite spot of mine and I may have said that in a prior posting. It is close to home and affords a nice view of the valley here on three sides. There are often mists in the lower lying spots which are very helpful at this time of bleak autumn bareness of forests and meadows. I was hoping to find a nice vantage point for the sunrise.
While waiting I looked up the hill and saw that the dawn pastels to the north made a lovely backdrop for the two maples that sit on top of the hill.
One of the drawbacks to this view is the settlement of the valley. I have framed this to hidethe homes below behind the trees although some still are visible behind within the low-lying fog. It is getting increasingly difficult in most of southern New England and much of the north as well to find wide landscape views without some hand of man in sight. I need to start traveling more, I guess.
