This lake is accessible via Winnekenni Park in Haverhill, MA. A short ten minute walk from the parking lot will get you to this spot. This location is not too far from the castle in this park either so it makes for a worthwhile visit if you're short on time.
The lighting was fairly complex at the time this photo was taken. There were a few distant bands of orange in the sky, but for the most part there were varying shades of yellow, white, and grey. On the lake itself, however, the colors had more of a traditional sunset hue.
An overcast sky can make for a dramatic scene, and although this would probably be a great spot for a more colorful sunset, I was happy for the complexity and darker tones in this scene.
