Quabbin Ice by James Hunt
“It had been a very frustrating day in the field, hiking around the Quabbin Reservoir, looking for images that could say something creative about the water. The weather was terrible. Cold and with little to show for my efforts, I headed home. Just before I got in the car, I looked down.”
