Today I explored some favorite locations in Essex County, Massachusetts, chasing the afternoon light and a painterly effect. This view is from The Hamlin Reservation managed by The Trustees of Reservations. This wetland is drained by The Labor-In-Vain Creek. Love that name! The image maximizes tonal range by combining three separate exposures.
Tonight I arrived at this peaceful pond in Andover, just after the sun had set, but in time to catch these subtle colors and shadows. Harold Parker State Forest is a great place to visit in all seasons, on foot, cross-country skis, road bike or mountain bike.

Spring is here in Massachusetts but it sure doesn’t feel like it yet!
I rushed to catch the sunset tonight from the Annisquam neighborhood of Gloucester, MA. Got there just in time, don’t you think?
Sunset on Lake Quannapowitt
Who needs to go to the tropics when we have spectacular sunsets right here in New England?
