This is another spot that I enjoy photographing repeatedly. Here is a post from last year. In this case I was able to get to shore level due to our low water currently.  I employed a long exposure to smooth the … Continue reading

10.20.16 Like a broken record (if you remember records)

The broken part being my love of and repeated sharing of images from the same location.  That is the case with this view having been shot by me annually for at least 10 years.  There is always something different…color brilliance, … Continue reading

08.22.2016 More Quabbin Shoreline with Mount Lizzie in the Distance

Here’s another view of the reservoir from the shore made last Saturday.  The water level is down seven feet last I heard.  It would take a lot of rain to approach full again.  If we experience an active hurricane season, … Continue reading
