Boston City Skyline Photography

Boston City Skyline Photography

Post sunset is one of my favorite times to take photographs. I regularly go out and capture the Boston city skyline at twilight on days that I am not occupied hunting for nature photographs. The best time is 20 to 30 minutes after the sun has set. The optimum light does not last long. Because twilight is hard to predict I set up my tripod and camera prior to the actual sunset and then fire away once the sun sets and disappears. This approach requires sufficient battery power and flash card memory to keep shooting while closing in on the optimum light. The twilight effect also ... Learn More.

Looks like pollution but it is not

I always wondered about the oil film that can be observed between the pond and the upland when exploring the wildlife sanctuary Hall's Pond in Brookline. I remember when I encountered the oil film the first time I was very worried about some kind of pollution but the opposite is true. From the Hall's Pond brochure I quote: This area is a wooded wetland, where trees grow on mounds of soil and water collects during wet seasons. Peat soil lies under the area and as this material decomposes, ... Learn More.

Around Herring River - Cape Cod

On our way back in the evening from a bicycling tour around Martha's Vineyard and hoping to bump into the Obamas, I noticed the red boat in the Herring River at an overpass near Harwich, MA. I immediately decided to come back here the next morning knowing that nobody would move the boat if I just get there early enough to work the object. Next morning I fell out of bed trying not to wake everybody else up, jumped in the car and did the 35 minute drive over to the location on route 28. Not that I was going too fast that morning but luckily a fellow driver warned me with his headlights to slow down a little because of a police car checking the speed limit further down the road. All I needed now was to get pulled over in the wee hours and get a ticket. Finally arriving at the location I was relieved that the boat was still there. The sun was already up, partly painting the boat in the glory morning hour light. I often get carried away by certain scenes and start shooting following my instincts instead of analyzing the scene. First I captured the boat directly from the parking lot but then made my way towards the overpass where I kept shooting. I then crossed the bridge and moved closer to the boat incorporating the grass in the front into the composition. At that point I also decided to change my lens range to 300mm lens zooming in more and achieving a narrower, more intimate view of the dinghy. It was a very quiet and windless morning which made it a good day to capture water reflections. Once I got the image I wanted I made my way back towards the overpass. Here I stopped one more time to arrange and capture this additional frame. I now anxiously watch the weather forecast because I will be back for sure on an early foggy morning ... can you imagine the possibilities!
