02.20.2017 The Holyoke Mountain Range from Afar

This is a view from the Quabbin Tower just as the sun was rising.  I had the Belt of Venus in mind as I drove there and decided to do a long shot of the mountains as I climbed the hill. The blue clouds are, more or less, the earth’s shadow.holyoke-range-from-quabbin-hill-022017-800plusBTW, when I say the tower, I mean at the base.  It’s boarded up for the winter…at least I hope it’s just for the winter.

    What sumptuous color. I like the timber draping the tops of the mountains in the medium distance, too. It makes them look as though they’ve been poured out — like a thick cake batter going into a pan. Beyond all that, the four horizontal textures really make the photo for me: from the smooth pink sky to the wooded foreground. It’s a simple photo, really — but endlessly interesting.

  2. Incredible colors and I must say I did not know about the belt of Venus. I learn so much from the bloggers that I follow. This scene looks like a painting and I have no idea why. But then my eyes need surgery and maybe I need to post haste and get it done. 🙂
