Quabbin shoreline of course. I did go to Harvard Pond earlier, but am sharing out of order.
This scene is along the edge of the reservoir near an area known as Hanks Meadow in the park proper. One of the things we are finding now is a great number of rock piles. Aside from them ruining the landscape view for others, they also disturb various small creatures that rely on the rocks for cover and, in some cases, food sources. Even on the shore and definitely in the water…in the water being off limits as it is a protected water supply resource for Boston and other communities. I noticed this morning that not only are rocks being piled similar to cairns, but they are also now being arranged into “rooms”. I am not sure exactly what goes on within the rooms, but it really changes the whole mood for shore walking. Anyway, just my grumbling and it will change no one’s behavior because, no doubt, none of the folks doing it will be reading this.
I was looking for some sort of interesting foreground feature as there were few clouds in the sky and a landscape shot here would be pretty blah without something to grab attention.
Not sure whether this is a wall hanger (interesting clouds would help), but I enjoyed finding it and making an image. Were it not for the drought this would be underwater. According to our long-range forecast, it won’t be underwater anytime soon.
Harvard Pond to come tomorrow. No shooting Tuesday…colonoscopy (I’d usually be working then anyway). The prep diet is worse than the procedure…I’ll sleep through that.
