12.22.2022 Looks hot, doesn’t it?

From 2019 on this date, it was actually quite cold.  But the sky was hot for a short time and I was lucky enough to be driving by the Pelham Lookout on US Route 202 at just the right moment.

Just a small bit of the reservoir is visible beneath the fog.  It’s a favorite view for folks traveling along the highway and I am rarely the only one there. The state has created a nice pullover and it can get a bit crowded at times but most are there for the view and only a couple photographers with tripods to be counted.

    The colors are indeed warm looking. I see why you would count this as a favorite place to pull over any time to enjoy that view.

    • It’s a great spot. Sometimes the reservoir is cloaked in fog that resembles crashing waves. In Autumn there can be spectacular color in the foreground and no matter the time of year, there is always the possibility of a nice sunrise. The ten or so steps from the driver’s seat to the stone wall where one sets up is a challenge but worth it.


  2. I applaud your state for creating a nice pullover. That wasn’t the case two months ago on New Mexico Highway 117, which goes past some great cliffs but offers no places for drivers to safely park. I had to pull over in some not-so-great places to take pictures.

    • While there are not pullovers in great spots all along our highways there are a few spots. This route is #202 which goes from Maine to Delaware. I’ve only traveled the part that is in Connecticut and Massachusetts but it is quite scenic there.

    What a lovely overlook, and the fog really adds to the mystical quality. Terrific photo, Steve.

    This photo is warm to view but not to create.

    It looks warm, at least. For once, we have some steam fog on the Gulf to match that shown in your photo.

  8. This is beautiful! I like what is happening in that little slice, between the foreground silhouette and the sky.
