Earlier today I took a trip to the Wachusett Reservoir in Clinton, MA. This is a pretty large body of water, so I just stayed on the Clinton side near the dam. The weather was much cooler than it has been, but in the name of taking some photos I didn't mind at all.
I've been here before and have even done a portrait session or two here as there is a good contrast of greenery, water and the large dam of course. These are some a few photos from the short walk today. The buildings that you see are near downtown Clinton.
The Dam is very large so at street level you start at the very top.
This is a view looking across the top of the Dam. This area is restricted though so I took this photo through the gate which you can sort of see in the photo above.
Along the right side there is a path that takes you down to the lower area. Its a really pretty scene with Clinton in the background.
This is a photo looking back.
This next photo helps show you the sharp incline, Clinton in the background and the road on the far right of the scene.
Looking back towards the Dam I saw this tree and really liked the contrast.
Here is a slightly different perspective.
This is another photo looking towards Clinton from a slightly different position.
This the area below. There is a fountain in the middle which then leads to the body of water. You can see the trees surrounding the fountain and yes, it looks amazing when they are in full bloom.
And this is one photo taken from the opposite side of the Dam. In the distance you can see West Boylston, and Shrewsbury. Its really good to see that all the ice is gone. Spring and early Fall in Central MA are amazing.
Please continue to visit my blog as Spring has arrived and I'm excited to share with you more sites and photo destinations in the area. I plan to visit the Garden In The Woods, in Framingham tomorrow. So stay tuned for that blog post coming soon.
