Again with the out of order chronology of my Saturday in the Park. As I approached Quabbin from Amherst I was driving in fog, sometimes thick and sometimes thin, I anticipated many opportunities. Yesterday you saw sunbeams as that fog burned off over the once beautiful stand of red pines. Today’s image is from the first moments at Enfield Lookout. While the sunrise in the east is where most dawn color is seen, the west often offers the beautiful Belt of Venus, below it the Earth’s shadow.
Lots of colorful layers but I wanted to include the bare birch which I think adds a little Extra Texture to the image.
