This page, comprised primarily of a centerpiece on a bioreserve, is a good example of the fun one can have with a Sunday front.
The piece incorporates story, images, a map, bulleted information and a timeline effectively. The five column spread provides the reader plenty of room to roam between elements.
The top image transitions seamlessly to the head and subhead. The pull-quote sums up the headline, referring to the area's "well kept secret," and is ideally placed.
As I am unfamiliar with southeastern Massachusetts, it took me a while to get my bearings on the map itself but I assume that would not be the case for locals? The map itself was unique, using an image of a forested area for the area of the bioreserve.
A timeline, colored appropriately in green, runs the length of the page, anchoring the piece to its related story and image.
My guess is that this area won't be a secret for long.
Good job, Herald News.
