David Lawrence is a middle school science teacher and photography enthusiast from Lexington, MA.
This photo was taken from the top of the observation tower on the summit of Mount Greylock in the Berkshire Hills of Western MA. At 3,491 feet above sea level, it’s the highest point in Massachusetts, and on a clear day you can see gorgeous vistas for 60 to 90 miles in all directions. Alas, this was a cloudy, drizzling afternoon, and all I could see through the skinny plate glass windows was rain, fingerprints, and an assortment of dead flies.
