Photo Reflection of the Day #173: Halibut Point

What Is It

The quarry at Halibut Point State Park in Rockport, MA.  

Why It's Today's Pick

Halibut Point State Park is one of my favorite places to visit in Rockport. It's a nice little space with some easy trails, good shade, and lovely waterfront.  I don't know why but I am particularly partial to the pond in the quarry with it's high cliffs and nearly flat water, motionless water.  In this photo I like the fact that you can see the ocean beyond and so you have a contrast of sorts of the fresh and the salty, the still and the shaky.  There's no swimming in the quarry allowed, but it would seem like a nice place to go for a dip.  I imagine that there could also be some great photo opportunities for this place during the morning when the sun is rising.
