Good night, Beantown

Taken from Eastern Point in Gloucester, this is the sun setting behind Boston on a bitter cold evening. A fishing boat passes by.

Looking over Dogbar Breakwater, Boston stands as the sun set to the right.

Absolutely wonderful. I can feel the comfort of the fishermen as they come in from the cold.

Thanks folks. This boat is probably heading out, since he is headed north, unless he is from Rockport. Either way, the boats do come and go all day. Brrrr.

Hi Mathew, I see you started Soundbounder. Cool, I'll be keepoing and eye on it.

This seems awfully lonely and desolate Steve. Beautiful capture of the moment!!

Steve, you have the most beautiful sunsets! Any idea how many miles away Boston is in these photos?

I measured the distance on Google Earth. It is 26 miles from Dogbar to the skyscrapers of Boston. It looks remote and peaceful. Actually, Gloucester is at the end of Route 128, not at the end of the universe! That is what I tell my wine shop buddy in Salem when he's supprised I came all the way down from Gloucester to see him.
