I live in New Hampshire. It is almost a three hour drive to the city of Boston, MA. we go there a few times every year. Most times it is to the airport for a trip to far off lands. That is what we were doing on this trip. The flight to Puerto Rico was the next morning. We most times book our flights so that we can wake up early drive down to the airport and get to the flight in the mid afternoon. This flight was a very early flight I think it was at 6 AM so it worked out for us to travel down the night before and stay nearby the airport making it easy and quick to get in, in the morning. As we wanted for some food to be delivered I noticed the sunsetting from our room window. I knew I had a very short time to get down to the rivers edge before the sun was gone and the photo op was too. I had to find a a way to get past the fence that was separated our hotel form the water front area. I had to walk over some closed, abandoned rail road tracks to get near the water. It seems to be a spot that held a dock or pier of some kind. The post were all but rotted away. The light was getting more amazing by the minute. I set up my tripod and starting framing up some shots.
ABOUT THIS PHOTO: I took many photos but this one is one of the keepers. I took 3 bracketed photos at different exposers. Then blending them together in Photomatix. Creating the HDR effect you see here. I like this photo for the many elements it holds. We have the city of Boston, the great windmill with office or factory building next to it and of courses the epic sunset tying it all together. The tripod was a must have for this type of shot.
