04.12.2021 South Maple Sunrise

Another oft visited location just a few minutes from the house.  The foreground is farmed for hay but was recently protected by the local Kestrel Trust and then transferred to the Silvio Conte  National Wildlife Refuge.  A few years back this site was slated for a solar farm but was protected through local efforts and is now in perpetuity.

This view is just a bit north of the scene I posted on the 7th of April and around the corner from that of the 8th.  It’s nice to have these places nearby.

    It’s quite an image. I can feel the flow of the fog following the ridgeline.

    • I made several exposures as you’d expect. I almost did not choose this one because of what you see as a ridgeline which is actually a low cloud. It is a bit deceptive. Maybe I should say it is a ridge. The clouds were the most textured in this frame which is why it got posted. Shortly after this they hit the horizon and the light disappeared until after noon.

  8. Stunning! The details in the clouds and silhouetted trees give us the ‘extra special’ to hold are attention and linger.
