Quabbin Iciles


In winter, nearly every day, the wind blows from the north at The Quabbin Reservoir. With eighteen miles of north/south water, surrounded by hills, the waves build.

The waves roll onto the shoreline and its contents. Water runs off them and freezes.

On days with light wind, you can hear creaking all around you as branches protest the weight.

This blueberry bush is leaning on a rock for support.

Very soon the air will warm and the Quabbin icicles will be gone for another year.
