08.09.2018 Orange-Millington Road

Monday brought us a nice foggy start to the day seen earlier in Sunrise Surprise. As the fog dissipated, it still added a lot of “atmosphere” to the hike I made on Orange-Millington Road inside Quabbin’s Gate 30 (also accessible from Gate 29).

  1. I really like this photo in its muted stillness. With the trees shrouded in fog, It has an air of serenity.

  2. Oh, I like the atmosphere you’ve captured here. Do you see lots of joggers, walkers, and folks with dogs on your early morning adventures?

    • The atmosphere here was dear. I have several other compositions form other spots but liked this the best.
      I do see walkers and bicyclists on this road and some others. Not all Quabbin roads allow bicycles. Dogs are not allowed anywhere in the watershed. Surprisingly, I don’t recall any joggers although I am sure there must be. Elsewhere I do see all the above. Our town trails are popular for dog walkers but only a few allow off-leash and only within certain hours.


  3. Look at all the gradations of soft.

    The mist softens everything so it looks as though a paintbrush has produced this image. Very atmospheric.

    Very atmospheric Steve. Good to see you posting regularly again. We could do with some mist here.

    Welcome back Steve! You have been sorely missed during your hiatus and I, as well as many others, I’m certain, am pleased by your return. I greatly treasure the shared and posted trails of your artistic adventures. My self-centeredness speaks for itself!!
    This last shot presents, to me, as a mystic serenity while the emerging sunlight on the tree at the right, evokes anticipation of the dawn of a new day offered to immerse one’s self in the abundance of beauty we are so blessed to receive.
    Thanks again, Steve

    • Hi, Faith. I am glad you see the ethereal in this image. And I am glad also that you like to follow my exploits. I’m always out there as much as I can but don’t always post. I’ll try to be more regular.


  8. This is a terrific shot. I love a foggy morning and old trees.

    I especially like the light glimmering on the trunk of the largest tree on the right. There’s just enough to highlight the texture of the bark, allowing the tree to balance the path curving off to the left. It has the kind of painterly feel that I really enjoy.
