Whenever there is a gap between the horizon and a cloud filled sky, there is a possibility for a spectacular sky at dawn. Unfortunately, I got out of the house too late to get to water’s edge at the Quabbin, so I hustled up Mount Pollux…hustle is relative as there is a road almost to the top. This angle has a few houses that are in the lower right, so I had to frame them out which truncated the composition a little more than I wished and the shadows do a good job of concealing them.
The clouds were a little soft so the rays of color are not as defined as I had visualized, but still a nice scene over the Pelham Hills.I really like the trees on Pollux. Unfortunately, many are dead and have either fallen in decay or the town has cut them. The vines, mostly poison ivy, give them a spooky look which I find enjoyable.
