This is not from the side or rear of my car. I had to walk, a bit downhill to reach it although only maybe a 10 minute trip, then a slight uphill back to the car. No big deal for most folks, but the closest thing to a hike with my camera bag on my back in just a little while.
Quabbin Park’s Orchard Trail is a nice little jaunt although not terribly appealing in the winter with no snow on the ground. It is an area managed for the groundwater flow and runoff into the reservoir so aesthetics is not a priority. It is much more attractive when there are leaves on the trees or the branches and trunks having fallen to the ground are under a few feet of snow.
That said, doing closeups of the ice offered the best chance for a decent image.
Tomorrow’s weather is up in the air, so to speak and literally. We were warned of snowfall anywhere from 12″ to 18″ plus some sleet and freezing rain, possibly changing over to plain rain before back to that nice mixed precipitation forecast. But lately we are hearing of a slight warm up that may yield more of a mix and less snow. We’ll see. Monday, however, is still looking very grim with temps in the single digits and strong gusts yielding wind chills well below zero. Not that long ago I’d be excited about the frigid possibilities for unique images. Now, maybe not so much. 🙂
