I know that I have mentioned my favorite collection of Eliot Porter’s work to be Nature’s Chaos. It’s a real challenge to look into total disorganization and find something coherent to share. Once in a while I manage to find such a scene as I drive through the Quabbin Park and one of those times netted this image last week. I had just finished photographing the full moon over a cove in the park and was driving around when this caught my eye.
The park is fairly dense so finding a gap is not always easy. It was good fortune as well. Today I drove through here again and most of the leaves are fallen or faded. What was left this morning will no doubt be completely gone with the rain and wind we have had and is forecast for tonight. Nice while it lasted.
But…the Holyoke Range is just turning and there may still be some peak foliage to be seen once the weather improves.
