10.25.2014 Quabbin Valley Sunrise

This morning I decided to get a sunrise view looking south into Quabbin Valley from New Salem.  I was fortunate that some of the trees were still carrying a few colorful leaves and the sun lit the valley enough to help balance the shadows and highlights.

We had a couple of days of wet weather and the clouds cleared out last night.  I saw nothing but stars when I let Murphy out at 4:00 but, when bringing in the paper at 5:30, there were clouds moving across the sky and I thought I’d better get moving.  It was an unusual start as the clouds were getting some color more than an hour before sunrise and it kept building during the drive to New Salem.  I got there just in time.

Clicking the image gets you a bigger picture.

  1. What colorful cloud strata: they make the picture (except that you made the picture, of course).


    • I really was concerned that I was going to miss this as I drove there.It’s a half hour ride and the color kept intensifying the closer I got. Thank goodness there are not school buses out and about on the weekend.


  2. Stunning. Period! D

    Red sky at morning, sailor take warning — as the saying goes. One detail I noticed is how the trees in the foreground seem to be reflecting back the red to the clouds, but the river isn’t. It looks like the sky is much more clear above the water – it’s a lovely effect.

    This is spectacular Steve and you have done it full justice.


  5. Magnificent scene.Wow and wow. I love this one. Very colorful sunsets are usually a forewarning of some sort of weather change. But I’m aware that this photo is of a an early morning sky.
