As you know it is bit difficult to watch Sunset over a large water body in the East, so i took this task of visiting the west side of the Cape Cod. I thought most of the places facing the bay will be filled with people and wanted to go to a beach which is less crowded.

After looking at the map couple of times, i found this beach in Great Island pretty much closed to the public because of some dune collapse and private residences. I was the only one when i entered the beach and had fun photographing things at my will. Slowly couple of people showed up here and there on the beach during Sunset but not crazily crowed. Sat there till sunset and had a nice time watching the Sun go down in the Bay.

Some HDR touch here just to show the Pebbles on the beach. And bit of cheating too. I only placed that Seashell over there :)

That is the official nick name for Seattle. I have visited Seattle couple of times in the past but never got a chance a experience the city. But this time i showed lot of interest in photographing this beautiful city. Seattle definitely looks like an emerald surrounded by beautiful green mountains and numerous waterbodies. Apart from being naturally beautiful and clean, the city got one of the best transportation systems in United States. At least it is one of the cleanest cities i have ever visited.

This is a single exposure shot of the Seattle Downtown as seen from 12th Ave Bridge. Exactly at this interchange the I-90 terminates after intersecting with I-5. I wish there be a day i can drive the whole stretch of I-90 from Boston to Seattle.

Finally, the credit for this photograph should go to my friends who were patient enough to take me around and to the flickr friends who spotted this location.

This is the first place i ever got scared of losing my camera. This is the place i used the live view feature more than the view finder. Also this is the first place that exceeded my expectations in terms of photography. Welcome to the Palouse falls. With a drop of 200 feet and canyon walls reaching heights of 400 feet, Palouse Falls State Park offers wonderful views provided you don't have Acrophobia.

I took this shot of the lower falls with the tripod just couple of inches away from the cliff. The camera would have swept away easily with a sudden wind in any direction. I am usually not frightened of heights but it was bit scary looking at the falls standing at the edge. That said you have to really experience it to appreciate it.

If you ask me how much time it requires to visit all the important spots in Boston, my answer will be 5 minutes.

Photographed is the Downtown Boston as seen from Prudential Skywalk. Without a question, Skywalk is best spot to see pretty much all the important places in Boston area. Unlike NYC skyline, Boston skyline is thin and that really helps in seeing all the spots like Boston Common, MIT, Harvard, Beacon Hill, Fenway park to name a few.

I have been to Skywalk almost 8 months ago and took few photographs during the night. This time i wanted to try some sunset photo shoot inspired by my recent Manhattan photographs. Inspired by my own photographs. I know, that's funny :-)

More information about the Skywalk Observatory here.
