I was ambivalent about going out yesterday morning. The promised fog had dissipated and the overcast did not bode well for a nice sunrise or decent light. But I went out to see what I could see and see something I did.
I’ve posted this view many times but there is always the chance for something different. In this case although the sky was mainly filled with clouds, there was that always hoped for gap at the horizon the offers some nice light. As I drove toward Quabbin Park the bottoms of the clouds that were all crowded together across the sky were slightly lit up by the warm light and I thought I’d not see any of that color when I reached my destination. That seemed the case when I arrived at the Enfield Lookout but for a few brief moments some of the color glanced across the top of the valley fog and I was prepared for it while just focussing on the fog and Monadnock’s top. The shaft of light hitting the foreground cove was a nice addition. This was shot with the 100-400 plus a 2.0 teleconverter which gave me 426mm (didn’t really need the TC) and compressed 40 miles into something a bit closer in appearance.
It was a wow moment for me and I hope the image conveys that.
