Exploring Mt. Greylock

Feeling the winter blues a little early after our Thanksgiving snowstorm? Here’s a very colorful memory of this fall in New England:

In the midst of the Berkshires, Mt. Greylock is an amazing spot to relax and take in the views of the mountains and colors of the fall! Home to (some say) the best waterfall in MA, there are great hiking trails on the mountain and a wonderful lodge that you can even stay overnight in or just grab snacks from. It’s called Bascom Lodge and it’s pretty cheap if you stay in the bunk bed rooms. I stayed for one night and had the most incredible home cooked meal I’ve had in awhile (other than my mothers!). Oh, and you can also drive up the mountain (like I did) instead of hiking. 😉

On the way up the mountain, there are a bunch of look-out kodak-y moment spots perfect for photo shoots.

I had originally taken the 3 hour drive from Boston to get an epic Lunar eclipse shot. However, mother nature (once again!) foiled my plans and that night, the worst fog I’ve ever seen rolled into town! I could not see more than 5-10 feet in front of me. This shot is what I woke up to…

And this is when I retrieved my tripod from the car…

So I went back to bed and slept in….   🙂

I had been watching the weather and radar all week and that night. It was beautiful the day before and it did turn out to be a beautiful day the next (only a little bit of fog as you can see above). Regardless of not getting my eclipse shot, the trip was awesome. It was a peaceful retreat away from the city and I would definitely go again! 🙂

Hi there! I am a Boston based photographer who loves to photograph different people, places, and things all across the world. Meeting and learning about other people and cultures enraptures my attention like nothing else and in this I find the joy of life. Connection. Connection with others, with places, with the energy of the world! This is what drives me to photograph, to capture a small piece of my experiences to remember them by and share. Cheers!
