012009 - New Britain Reservoir


This is a Kodachrome image taken about 35 years ago. On the border between New Britain and Plainville is the New Britain Reservoir. If you're familiar with the area, it is near Roger's Orchards. There is a trail that begins across from the New Britain Reservoir MDC building and follows the eastern ridge which parallels the reservoir.

I took a series of images along the ridge trail as the sun set and twilight enveloped the area. This image was taken with a Nikon F3 and a 43-86mm f/3.5 zoom. A valuable lesson was learned on this outling: bring a flashlight as you're descending the trail in almost total darkness.

This image is available framed or matte only in the following sizes:
●    8x10 print / 11x14 matte
●  11x14 print / 16x20 matte
