Having only recently tried to shoot outside with my "little" 8x10, I'm in awe of these images, especially since they were done by somebody who doesn't have to put up with this New England weather as a matter of course. Not sure I'd ever go swimming at the "Swimming Hole" - old mill foundations are treacherous places - beautiful in your image, though. Good luck with the TSA complaint and I hope you won't hold it against New England. Crappy weather not withstanding, it can be a great place to shoot. You were, in fact, just at the edge of papagene's favorite stomping grounds and the scene of many fruitful NEAPUG outings, the Quabbin reservoir. Come on back and the coffee (or bev. of your choice) is on us.
