After shooting the ice coated tree yesterday, I waited as the sun broke the horizon behind the trees hoping for a nice starburst.  Rather than the 16-35 I usually use for that, I mounted the 50mm Zeiss and got a … Continue reading

The morning was pretty foggy and when I reached the end of Amherst Road where it meets Route 202 I had a decision to make…north or south.  I chose south and ended up in Quabbin Park.  I think the fog … Continue reading

07.13.2019 Another North Quabbin Sunrise

Stopped on my way to look for rattlesnake plantain in North Quabbin, which I did find but the images are still waiting for processing. This was certainly a nice start to the day although the clouds overhead (second image) never … Continue reading
