Writing with Light

A Boston Sunset

I had to be in Boston last week for a conference and I decided to get in a day early so that I could do some shooting around the city. I do love Boston and was thrilled to find myself back in Beantown, even if it was just for a few days.

I spent hours walking during the day but I knew where I wanted to end up at sunset…Fan Pier. The pier is a great spot to photograph the skyline. I’d shot there the last time I was in town and was terribly disappointed with the images I came away with so this was my opportunity to give it another go.

It was a lovely sunset…not a wow by any means but nice and subtle with a beautiful transition to the blue hour. I was much happier this time around.

      • I’m still here :). I was just getting tired of the mystery photo, and work has been crazy busy! I want to get back to posting my photos from Europe when I find the time LOL.

  6. Beautiful! When I was growing up in Boston Fan Pier wasn’t a spot you’d consider taking a photo from. I love seeing the city from this angle!

  13. Stunning images, Edith!!! All of them! May I ask what lens you used because I really like the affect of it? I also see you have a 7D so that too may have a bearing on the quality of your images. I really enjoyed this post!!! Thank you! Love, Amy ❤

    • Thanks so much Amy. I used my wide angle Sigma 10-22mm (on my 7D) for this image.

      • Your images are truly stunning, Edith. Thank you so much for the information. Some day I will have more lenses and my dream camera, the 6D. Until then, I DREAM and work my “magic” with what I do have. (smile) Love, Amy ❤
