11.19.2021 Turned out better than expected

By the side of the road along Route 202 in Pelham is a nice lookout over the Quabbin Reservoir that attracts a fair number of commuters each morning. A few photographers stop there as well.  I’ve posted several shots from … Continue reading

11.14.2021 Swift River Valley

I’ve photographed this scene a few times.  The Quabbin Spillway is behind us here as we stand on the bridge over the escaping Swift River. Even with all the rain we’ve had recently there is little water flowing over the … Continue reading
