USA | Boston Harbor Sunset

USA | Boston Harbor Sunset

After a cloudy afternoon in Boston, I didn’t have much hope for a remarkable sunset. Still, I wanted to check out the harbor area for blue hour, so I got there a little early and wandered around looking for a good spot. A few minutes later, the clouds thinned out – and were lit up by the most beautiful pink, orange and red hues!

Berlin | Oberbaumbr├╝cke

Berlin | Oberbaumbr├╝cke

While most of Europe has been blanketed in snow this week, Berlin has managed (for once in winter) to stay sunny – but it’s misleading since temperatures have dropped to as low as -13C at night with highs of -5C or -6C during the day! Whenever there are several consecutive days of sub-zero temperatures, chunks of ice collect on the river Spree upstream of the Oberbaumbr├╝cke in Eastern Berlin, as shown here shot earlier today during blue hour.

Austria | Salzburg Blue Hour

Austria | Salzburg Blue Hour

The city of Salzburg sits on the Salzbach river, near the border with Germany. The old town sits on and around the Salzburg hill (literally “Salt Fortress”). From the river there are beautiful views of the city and surrounding mountains. This shot was taken at blue hour during my visit last summer.
