10.15.2019 Hawley Reservoir

I hope you don’t mind seeing a bunch of foliage images in a row.  🙂   I’d like to be able to intersperse some water images, but most of the brooks are pretty much dry and even the Quabbin and Atkins Reservoirs are quite low.  But Hawley Reservoir, while not over-brimming, does have enough water to stay full to the shoreline although not as high as it might be. And yesterday’s post had a lot of water evident too.

I’ve made several similar images here over the years, including this one with mountain laurel last spring.  It’s a great place for reflections.  The calmness only lasted for a few minutes before a breeze kicked up and blurred the reflection.

    More colours! Here I believe they will be lost this year – too much rain and stormy weather. I will enjoy yours!

  2. What a beautifully composed image! Such a tranquil scene – I really miss the magnificent fall colors since moving to Florida several years ago. Such a gift!

    Wish I could find autumn colour like that around here!

  4. You have a long way to go before you wear us out with pictures like this one, with both fall color and reflections.

  5. I don’t mind at all. Not one little bit. This is one of the best reflection shots around. I deliberately go for a calming affect in my horizon shots. This does exactly the same thing for me. And for very similar reasons.

    • I am glad to hear that my images calm you with all the craziness we deal with in our lives. I was going to see “these days” but honestly I think that’s how life always is for most of us. Thanks for the nice words about my image, Michael.

    I thought I was going to escape my seasonal affliction this year, but this photo finally has triggered it: color envy. You have so many beautiful spots to enjoy, and it seems as though your autumn has been especially beautiful. I can’t imagine tiring of it, or of tiring of your photos — although I have to work on that envy business.

    • Envy away, Linda. I am envious of your Texas fields of flowers and the great variety. One of the things that makes the seasons special, especially autumn, is their shortness here. We did get a bit of an early blast of color and this year has been very good. The eastern part of New England is due to receive a powerful nor’easter tonight into tomorrow so they will probably lose the leaves. We may get some of the effects of that too, but hopefully not as strong and there will be another weekend at least remaining.

    Gorgeous reflections! I really like how all the color is framed in green, such a great find. It feels very tranquil, much needed after a long day at work. 🙂

  8. Really a beautiful scene with those brilliant fall colors reflected in the water.

    This is gorgeous – what I like is the way the reflections are broken into vertically linear shapes, while the trees themselves are more horizontally inclined – wonderful!!
