I posted out of order so this is a Mount Monadnock Prequel, I guess. Taken one day earlier from a vantage point several miles to the south in Quabbin Park, there is similar light to Sunday’s post and a lot of nice layering too. The unfortunate part is the treeline sticking up into the frame. There was a time many years ago when they didn’t interfere as much, but now the trees have grown and it isn’t likely that they will ever be trimmed. Their health is more important than a picture so I’m not complaining. One must make do with what is given. I mitigated their effect by standing on a picnic table with the tripod fully extended but even up there was not enough of an angle. I didn’t have my ladder to stand on top of the car. Next time.
And next time I will try to use a longer lens…this is 200mm, so the 300 with an extender…to concentrate just on the valley of layers and mountain. That said, I’d prefer the scene to include the water but not the trees.
