Artist's Description

Behind the Hatch Shell on Boston’s Esplanade, the Charles River turns to flow under the Longfellow Bridge and head to the harbor. Stand here at sunset and you have a perfect view west, straight down the center of the Charles. Linger through dusk and you are treated to the last rays of sun in the skies ahead and on the surface of the river that starts at your feet and spreads from Boston on your left to Cambridge to the right.

This shot was taken February 28 2012. It’s supposed to be winter so the colors of the view surprised me. But it’s been a winter full of surprises. Warm temperatures. Little to no snow. So instead of snow scenes, I think… warm colors of summer, sailboats and baseball… The bright light on the edge of the frame, to the left of Kenmore Square’s Citgo sign, is Fenway Park. (Just click on the image above for a larger, better view of the ballpark’s “starburst.”) It is February, so too early for game. But it is warm, so maybe just a catch?
