Last weekend we enjoyed our first trip to central Massachusetts, a visit that coincided nicely with the fall color season. We had a great time. I thought I would post a few of the photos that I took during our visit.
Some 75 years ago Massachusetts dammed a river in the middle part of the state creating the Quabbin Reservoir, a large, beautiful body of water nestled among the hills of the central part of the state. Unfortunately, I didn't get any decent broader landscape shots, something I simply am not particularly good at. Instead, I offer the following.
Paw prints in the sand.
Some lovely ferns along with a sprinkling of pine straw.
A sampling of the fall color leaves.
We also had a wonderful picnic lunch along the Swift River, the stream that was dammed to create the Quabbin Reservoir.
I also took some shots of manmade objects.
I know, I know, this is at the kind of shot that only the photographer could like.
Then there was the sign in a convenience store, Ye Old Grog Shoppe, near where we stayed. Seriously. (And the owner of the shop admitted that he did not know what grog actually was.)
A dilapidated duplex that was for sale, along with a closeup of some failed paint.
Finally, the entrance to a lovely stone church that was under renovation.
This last shot I liked for the rose colored doors, the ornate black hinges, and the symmetry.
