Rocky Bottom of Chestnut Hill Reservoir with Low Water Level at Dusk, Foggy Winter Day in Boston Massachusetts
I have lived up the street from this reservoir for 5 years and I can’t ever remember it being this low. For the last couple months I have been thinking about how to shoot the rocks and plan the lighting. So on this day, we had a snow storm and very cold temperatures in the morning that warmed up rapidly in the afternoon to above freezing creating some really dense fog throughout the city. I happened to drive by the reservoir during this time, and it become completely apparent my time had come to get the shot. So I got my gear and rushed back down to catch the golden hour into dusk, which is very early in winter. Felt really lucky to catch this rare mix of conditions, nothing I could have planned.
