Natasha Resting

Yachts resting in Boston harbor. They cover them in plastic for the entire winter to rest, not sure when they do this, my guess sometime in October-November time frame and probably open them up sometime in April-May. The big one is named “Natasha”, I imagine that it is named by some Boston based Russian super rich after his mistress, or something like that. In reality it is probably much more mundane. Anyway, this was taken in early January about hour or so before sunset. It snowed a few hours before and I believe it snowed a bit after this, but we had a few hours of clearing with clouds moving and sun nicely lighting them up.

Sunset Reflections

The sun is actually behind me in this photo, shining strong on the white walls of this light house with almost like burning bright reflections over the side walk. We probably had extra five minutes at this place before they closed the gates. I wonder if you can take picture there in the summer as sunset will be much later and they might not stay open that late.

Temple of Heaven

In the middle of the day this is one of the spots that I could take a picture of it not see any other tourists. It was unbelievably hot day with smoggy air. This picture shows blue sky but it done via some magic of software and combination of different exposures into one. It just looks much better this way.

Cherry Blossoms

This is my last one in this series, for now. I’ll look later in archive and see if any other photos are to my liking for sharing. When I went to take sunrise photos most people were taking photos of Jefferson Memorial across the Tidal Basin, with water included in the shot. I did the same, as you can see in my previous three photos. After taking those shuts, I went around the basin to find different angles on the memorial. On the other side of the basin there were no tourists and no photographers. After taking a few shots and trying different angles with trees, columns and rapidly rising sun I took this photo. I think it captures Cherry Blossoms with one of the most iconic American memorials in pretty cool way.

Cherry Blossoms

As I mentioned, I took a few photos of them and want to show most of them at this time in April. So here is another one.
