I don’t often photograph structures but there have been a few days lately when I have done just that. This is the first of a couple.
The 1794 Meetinghouse is the former First Church of New Salem, MA. As other churches were built in the town, this building saw fewer services and ceased that function over a century and half in the past. Civic functions have been the main use after the church and most recently it has become a Center for the Performing Arts. If you would like to know more about the center you can read here.
A few minutes after shooting the view looking south over the Quabbin Valley that you saw a few days ago, I was driving through New Salem and noticed these beautiful clouds sailing across the sky over the Center. I was fortunate to have driven by at just the right moment as the light faded within minutes of this shot.
