I took these photographs while exploring the Quabbin Reservoir on Jan. 20, 2010. Quabbin Reservoir – which supplies water to more than 2 million people – was built in the 1930's and is one of the largest man-made public water supplies in the United States. It was cold so there weren’t many other people around but I did spot two bald eagles. The park surrounding the reservoir is managed by the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) and is a great spot for hiking, bird watching, fishing, snowshoeing and biking.
