Some of my favorite Boston aviation moments of 2013, in photos.

As a professional photographer, a Winthrop resident, and a self proclaimed aviation fanatic, I have enjoyed bearing witness to some fun moments in and around Logan airport. here are some of my photos from 2013.

I snapped this from Winthrop today. A tricky exposure for sure. I ended up deciding on underexposing as plane after plane “shadowed” like this. The shadow would appear for just a split second. This was the heavy fog that enveloped portions of the area in the late afternoon today.

Supermoon + superfog = superfail

The fog rolls in at East Boston’s Constitution Beach. My hopes to photograph the cool moon tonight were dashed as a fog bank rolled in, getting progressively worse by the minute. These photos were snapped at 7:39pm, 7:43pm, 7:46pm, and 7:49pm respectively. They show just how potent the fog was, getting worse every minute. In fact, Logan airport arriving jets were warned of the fog and some switched to a category 3 landing, which is defined as a landing attempt in runway visibility less than 1200ft. A more heightened strand of an instrument landing system. Keep in mind, I never left my position and this is a 10 minute frame. All in all, a disappointing night.
