06.18.2015 The Shoreline and Quabbin Hill

Finishing up the images from Sunday morning, here is a view along the rocky edge of the reservoir and Quabbin Hill across from the end of Old Enfield Road. I’ve neglected to mention, and some may have assumed without being told, that “end of the road” is not exactly true as the road continued on for miles in the cases of most of Quabbin’s gates.  But when the land was taken for flooding, the road disappeared underneath the collected waters.  In some cases, when the waters are calm and clear, the pavement or tire ruts can be seen heading into the distance although that is not the case at this spot.

    The clouds reflected by the water are nearly a mirror image of those above.

  2. There is a stretch of shore along Lake Michigan where houses once stood. The currents of the lake seem to be carving the land westward, and so those old house foundations are now under water. It is as if the Lake were heading west. It is fascinating and a little creepy to see human endeavor under water, isn’t it?
    In this photo I’m taken with the clarity of the water, the reflections, and the glimpse of shore.

    Very nicely composed Steve. Spooky being able to see old places under water.

    Now, this is a photo I could live with. I like nearly all of your vividly colored sunrises and sunsets, but this is one I could put on my wall and look at every day. Rotate it 90 degrees CW. Do you see the pair of hands reaching up from the earth in a gesture of receptivity, cupped around the land? (There she goes again, wandering off…)

    • Nearly! Nearly!!! 🙂

      Well, of course your power of suggestion now has me seeing those hands too. Wander away…I enjoy what you see in the images even if they are not what I did. And I am also very glad you enjoy this one as you do.


  5. I, too, like the reflection of the clouds in the water.

  6. Very different from your usual photos. I like this one too. The rocky shoreline get my attention and the clarity of the water showing the reflected clouds.
