02.23.2014 Mount Wachusett from Pelham at Sunrise

It’s been a quiet winter for me photographically.  But I got out this morning and was treated to a lovely sunrise.  This is looking to the northeast from the Pelham Overlook of Quabbin on Route 202.  I usually try to get something in the cleft of the overlapping hills with the reservoir in view, but all the action was north of the reservoir.  It’s too bad, for us photographers, that there are antennas sitting atop the mountain, but from this distance they are barely visible.  I hope you enjoy the view. 🙂  Please click for a larger image.Mount-Wachusett-from-Pelham-at-Sunrise-022314-1024Web

  1. Breath taking colors of this sunrise. A real treat to see something so vibrantly beautiful. I really like this photo.


  2. Wonderful Steve. These are tough shots to make work but the sky was being cooperative!

    I guess this one doesn’t work in B&W. Fabulous sky Steve. You should blog the ‘several minutes later’ shot too.


    • Funny you should say that, Andrew. Another New England photographer shot this sky but at the shore this morning. He then posted a second in B&W claiming color wasn’t necessary. It was a nice shot, but a sky like this deserves the full technicolor treatment.
      The later one and one from earlier will show up tomorrow.

    We get these skies at home at sunrise – unfortunately they do’t come with the lovely views of the mountains, just the disused army barracks across the street.
    In PV we ar enjoying the sunsets every night. I am hoping to try a time-lapse sequence one of these evenings when conditions are right.
    Very lovely image Steve.

    Beautiful scene Steve!

    Boy oh boy, that is some sky. Nature’s palette is so awe-inspiring. These colours just beg to be photographed, or painted or written about. To witness something as beautiful as this at the start of a new day, is a gift, something to cherish in our minds eye as we get on with whatever our daily lives hurl at us.

    A beautiful vista, Steve, and as you say, the antennas are hardly visible, I clicked and enlarged my viewing pleasure. Such colours just make you gasp in response. xPenx


  8. All three of these sunrise images are gorgeous. Keep it up, if you can stand to arise so early. And while you’re out, maybe you can scoot some of your sunrises over to Austin.
