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.
