Sunset walk at Ponkapoag Boardwalk

Between Boston, Canton, and Milton in Massachusetts near where we live is the Blue Hills Reservation, a large conservation land. Ponkapoag Pond is at the Southern perimeter of the reservation. In the 1940s a boardwalk was constructed that leads approximately 1/2 mile through a cedar bog to the open shore of Ponkapoag Pond. Due to the acidic conditions inside the bog, unique vegetation can be found along the way, especially carnivorous plants.

When I first went to the boardwalk in 2008, I knew I wanted to begin a photo project. After not having been there for a while, it was an amazing experience tonight.
