A good 72 hours for #Boston weather photography.

Moons, clouds, rainbows and lightning, oh my, A good few days for capturing the natural, near my home in Winthrop,MA. I even managed to get a British Airways Boeing 777, flying from Newark to London, to cross the moon for me, at 7 miles high :-)

Dog saves family, then is saved by firefighters

Calie, a 7 year old pit bull was called a hero by his owners  Yves Casseus and Wendall Mars, after he would not stop barking as a 3 alarm fire began consuming their Chelsea home. The dog went missing but was found an hour into the fire as the fire continued to roar. The dog was found by Winthrop firefighters searching the 1st floor, and then carried out by Chelsea Duputy Chief Paul J. Eaves.

This photo was snapped from my Winthrop home, out our 3rd floor window, at approximately 7:23pm-ish tonight. Thanks to the internet, one can find out what type of plane, destination, and airline, etc. This is an Atlas Air 747-400. It is going 560mph at 36,000 feet. It is going from JFK-Frankfurt, Germany.

One of the most beautiful Boston sunsets in a long time.

Tonight had it all. A rainbow, over Winthrop, some lightning, some thunderstorm cloud tops that were illuminated by the setting sun. Very cool! Here are some photos I snapped from Winthrop tonight.

A beautiful Winthrop sunset.

I snapped this a couple of nights ago in Winthrop. Winthrop almost always has interesting light at sunset.

Sunset jet, miles away, as seen from Winthrop.

This was snapped with an 800mm lens and a 2x extender, making it a whopping 1600mm. In comparison, normal sight is 50mm. I am guessing that this jet was over the Dedham area or even more west than that.
