    A Hidden Gem with Scenic Walks Above the Winsor Dam and Goodnough Dike We visited Quabbin Park and Reservoir in Belchertown/Ware, Massachusetts multiple times in April, May and June of this year.

    Quabbin Reservoir Nature Hike: Pepper's Mill Pond and Goodnough Dike. Meet Spot: Access gate 51A, Route 9 westbound, Belchertown, MA Roll out of bed with the eagles!

What has become clear is that you have to get out there to photograph in many different conditions, varying the light, the sky, the wind, etc. We had a fairly decent snowfall earlier this week, which presented the opportunity to explore Goodnough Dike, inside Quabbin Park (Ware, Massachusetts) in a new way. The snow was pristine.
