A Chilly Morning in Boston Common

I had an 8 AM meeting in Boston but woke up round 6 to go walk around the Boston Commons and frolic in the snow. There was no frolicking involved. There was a lot of freezing involved, and it reminded me of a bad morning I had in Kiev with a gypsy cab in a blizzard. I wanted to get down to the harbor for some some other sunrise shots, but did not end up with time… but maybe that’s a good thing because it would have been even colder down there!

    Hey Trey, had to let you know that I went back through your HDR tutorial word for word, and learned lots of cool stuff. Thank you and keep the awesome pics rolling.

    Is that amazing or what. Love the color graduation of the sky.

    Trey, a suggestion: if you crop the foreground it would make the composition stronger.

    I like the foreground, makes the rest look even more outstanding

    Boston? COLD? You must be joking. Like I’ve said before, you don’t know cold until you visit MN/WI in January. It’s cold again here this weekend. The high yesterday was 2. That’s 2 above zero. Every day, I think about how nice it would be to wake up to warmth again. I miss Florida.

    Yeah, it was freezing down here a couple of days ago….(in the 50’s I mean hehehehe)

    LOve this one! Nice to see a vertical shot. I was just wondering why you never seem to do any of those and BAM, there’s one posted. Really Right Stuff’s L brackets are the bomb for quick orientation on the camera by the way. Not what kind you use. Anyway, cheers and great work as always :P

    Thanks all!

    Birgit – I agree — but the snow on the lane is not symmetrical — and cropping more makes it look a little bit off…

    I love the way you captured the different shades in the sky, as well as how defined the trees look.

    Trey….I had slight nostalgia looking at this. IT’s been several years since I’ve been to Boston…but I have been there in the dead of winter and I KNOW exactly how you felt about the COLDness. I remember this one time I drove into Boston from So. Maine to see the Blue Man Group perform…it was SOOOO cold that day. snowing, ice on the road and a BITING wind. NO fun, but I LOVE NE. And Boston is always in my heart.

    Wow, beautiful image. Colors and toning are great.

    I’m getting tired of winter. PA has been as cold as Boston, I’m sure. I’d like to see the same scene in the middle of summer, too!

    hehe thanks… I like the cold… but maybe just for short spurts… might be hard to live there all the time.

    Amazing depth in this photo and the definition really pulls you in!

    I’m amazed that you can make such a frozen scene look inviting to a Florida boy like me. Very nice.

  • http://www.stuckincustoms.com Stuck In Customs

    hehe thanks mate!

    It is very inviting, I also live in Florida. This image makes me believe I am there-if only for a minute. Happy Holidays!!!
