01.07.2017 North Quabbin Sunrise

At this point, I no longer remember why I didn’t get out on the first for a New Year sunrise…maybe it was overcast which seems likely…memory is a bit iffy.  But I did get out on the second and the sky offered up a nice display.

north-quabbin-sunrise-from-route-202-010217-800We’ll see what tomorrow brings. We are receiving the northwestern edge of Winter Storm Helena and may see around 4 inches or so of snow.  We could use more but I don’t want to tempt the fates and draw in the sort of snow and ice totals seen in the south and along the coast. All should clear by midnight or so and maybe a nice snowy landscape will greet a brilliant sunrise.  Here’s hoping.            🙂

    Beautiful winter photograph. I really like how you’ve captured the sun coming up from behind the trees and the early light casting a blue/mauve glow over everything. Perfect.

  2. Beautiful shot. Even though it can be hard to see your footing sometimes, I love walking that time of day – “roamin’ in the gloamin'”

    The lavender and blue combination is beautiful, and the dark blue streaks through the clouds are especially appealing. I like fireworks as much as anyone, but there aren’t any fireworks that can compare to this.

  4. Beautiful and oh so cold looking. Here’s hoping you get what ever weather you are hoping for. Just keep those frigid temps to the north. 🙂 It was apparently 12 degrees last night in my area.

  5. I like the way the color of the snow mimics that of the sky.

    I like the balance here between the foreground, which is nice and dark, even though it’s white snow, and the sunrise.
