I try to visit this spot every year and most times the images are pretty similar. Once in a while there is some low fog along the shoreline and sometimes, when I am lucky which I was not yesterday, there are puffy clouds. Clouds or not, fog or not, I like this spot and always look forward to visiting. It’s the site of the former Morton Pond in the former town of Enfield. When viewing the Quabbin map, it is interesting to look at the various areas that make up the reservoir and see the names of ponds that are no longer. Of course, the same can be said for the submerged towns.
So here is an image of the spot that I call Foliage Cove. Others may call it by another name.When the low sun hits the trees they seem on fire. I looked at a little desaturation, but that takes away the strong sense of color that shines from these trees in the morning light. Also, I am getting a feel for how I want to calibrate my display. I created a new profile but will probably need to tweak it a few times. Feel free to pass along your feelings about the appearance of the color, saturation and brightness…especially if your monitor is calibrated. Thanks.
