Last Friday my nephews were staying over and I thoroughly enjoyed their company because they were so excited playing video games. I was trying to think of a time that I was so excited about something as they were.
Then it started to snow. Snow is beautiful coming down - but as adults we know things are going to get messy outside once it starts to melt. Before I went to bed I took Gizmo for his nightly walk and as I stepped out of my building I was blown away as to how beautiful the trees looked with snow on them.
Then I thought to myself I might as well go outside in the morning to take sunrise pictures of the snow on trees. Sure I can do it in the day, but there’d be too many people ruining the shot. Plus there would be more tracks in the snow - so I decided morning time was the best shot.
Getting up super early is hard for me as I’m a night owl. But the good news is I’d already be up because my wife was going on a business trip - which meant we had to wake up at 4am. I looked up the sunrise time in Boston and it’s currently 7:30 am.
So the plan was to wake up, drop her off at the airport and hit the city. I wasn’t sure where to go so I thought back about last year and decided to shoot the trellis at Boston’s North End (by Faneuil Hall) then get to Boston Common Park and scout out locations to shoot.
But there was a screwball thrown in the plan as for whatever reason I couldn’t sleep. And we’ve all been at that crossroad where we have to decide if it’s worth sleeping for an hour and feel like crap - or just break night. I decided to break night and tough it out like a real man!
Although it stoped snowing the wind was still blistering. Which meant I wasn’t about to bring different lenses with me because changing lenses would be a pain in the - you know what. I decided to challenge myself to only use a 70mm - 200mm telephoto lens. Last year I used an ultra-wide 16mm-35mm lens, so why not mix it up this year?
