Boston Skyline


Boston Skyline April 2016

Boston Skyline.  Late afternoon.  As seen from Arlington 360 (about 8 miles outside of Boston).

For those of you who are familiar with Boston, if you look closely toward the middle right of the photo,

you can see the Zakim Bridge, and just to the left of that, a sailboat, and an airplane coming into Logan Airport.

Nice surprises, as I never saw any of this when I took the photo!

  3. well it was a lovely image to begin with but you have made it even better by pointing that out. Isn’t that always a lovely surprise when we download a photo that reveals that which we missed as our eye was glued to the viewfinder. Beautiful scene Lisa.

  16. Lisa, I do see the sailboat! Sometimes surprises do happen after you take a photograph. I’ve been to Boston, it’s a beautiful city, lots of history & character. I wonder from where you took this photo — you captured a really great & wide panoramic view! xx

  21. I like the panorama of the skyline of Boston. This happens to me, too – I take a shot and when I look at it on the computer, I see a bird in the frame that I didn’t know was there – an added bonus!

  26. Beautiful view Lisa! Jim and I put an offer in on a house in one of the outlying cities. Its street was on a hill that when you walked up it, there was a similar view of Boston. Our offer was not accepted though but we tried! We ended up just across from the NH border instead where property was affordable.
