12.28.2018 Quabbin Spillway spillin’ away.

The last several years have seen the Quabbin Reservoir well below capacity.  See my previous post about the water levels.  Although I was housebound for much of the autumn, I was aware that we received a great amount of rain and this past Wednesday I went to the Spillway to see the water overflowing.

It’s been a long time since I’ve seen it spilling so spillingly.

  1. Tremendous! I haven’t seen it spilling like that in a long time. Thanks for sharing, and such a great image. Glad you’re up and about. Happy New Year.

    • I’ve been visiting the park for years just as I know you have too, James. I always am hoping to see some overflow and now we have some. Although I did not try it the other day, I am also looking forward to leaning over the edge of the bridge and capturing the flow of the river as it leaves the reservoir. Wednesday I think the front of the lenses would have been pretty steamy. Happy New Year to you too.


  2. Out & About! Excellent. And unusual and intriguing shots.

  3. And it’s been a long while since you spilled out into the landscape to record a scene like this.

  4. A lot of water there which is always a good thing to see- at least in my book. Nice pic too.

    That first image is wonderful. The bridge and the water beneath it look like a keyhole. I can see you peering through it at all the wonderful sights that wait on the other side.

    How thrilling is this spilling. Noisy, too?

    I like that first image, Steve. The mist rising from the water, along with the color palette, create a really nice feel to the image. I always love being around flowing water, the sounds, the feel of the mist on your face, very relaxing.

    Quite a scene, fine capture of the flows. Great to see that you’re getting out and about – I just made it up to Jacob’s Hill and Spirit Falls in Royalston. The flows were pretty good there as well.
