Twilight at Long Wharf, Boston

I was gifted with three beautiful mornings at Long Wharf in Boston, MA. As I had hoped, it was the perfect place to enjoy a sunrise. Looking toward the sunrise, the harbor and sailboats provided a perfect foreground.

Looking to the west, the city skyline served as the perfect mirror. I have a couple of night shots that I’m still editing of the city. I’m hoping they turn out as I thought they would. I’m often disappointed with my long exposure shots. It’s a technical element I’m still trying to get consistently right.


In every direction, there was a view to be enjoyed. I will be returning to this spot on future visits to Boston to see what I can capture. Practice makes perfect.
