20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Tranquility on Quabbin Reservoir

I arrived at Quabbin Reservoir in Massachusetts for a day of fishing. I Looked out over the water and had to capture this moment of tranquility. This photo captures the peacefulness and feeling of being in "God's country". Quabbin Reservoir is about a 10 by 20 mile area strictly in nature void of any road traffic noise and commercial or private development. I always feel it is a gift and a privilege to be there.
