11.06.2016 North Quabbin Shoreline with Clouds

I haven’t taken inventory, but I am pretty sure we’re drawing near the end of the foliage images for 2016…unless I make a quick trip south.

Today’s photograph was captured on the way out after taking the image I posted yesterday. By this time, the sun was up above the trees and the sky was no longer pale but a nice blue filled with interesting clouds.  Relatively calm water made for a fairly clear reflection.


It was a nice lazychange this morning-sleeping an extra hour.  Poor Bentley’s feeding time was off all day though.  His stomach was still on DST.

  1. Was that taken with your super-wide?


  2. That’s a nice cloud sandwich. I’m surprised you still had fall color so late that far north.

    Sometimes, the clouds provide a point of commonality between landscapes even when all the other elements (fall color, water, etc.) differ. I was looking through some photos from my 2013 trip to Kansas today, and there’s one that shows clouds so similar to these I had to go back for another look when I saw yours.

    I love the “X marks the spot” effect of clouds and reflection, with the autumn color right in the middle.

    • Skies, for photography at least, are so much better with some clouds. Without them I doubt I would have stopped to make this photograph. Of course, in this case they are in the water too which is even better. Every sky differs from day to day, but if we are out there often enough there is some repetition on a similarity level…near or far.
      I consciously placed the foliage as near to center as possible while maintaining as much of the cloud mirror image as I could. The reflection did change the perspective a little.
