I have worked in the city of Boston for the majority of my professional career, and I feel as though I know the city quite well. It’s buildings, streets, etc. are all very familiar to me. Yet when I have the chance to take in the city from an elevated point of view, it always seems to take on a new look for me. The view from the observation deck of the Custom House is no exception. This was taken a short while before the sun set to the west of where I was standing, and I love how the last of the warm sun was lighting up parts of the various buildings that make up the Boston skyline.
There are pretty amazing views from all four sides of the observation deck, and I ended up moving around more than I probably should’ve trying to get the “shot” of the city at sunset. Fortunately I spent more time before sunset at this specific location, and was able to frame the image exactly as I wanted, and could wait for the light to be as I wanted it too. This is definitely a spot I plan to revisit soon.
