Boston sunrise

One tends to become blase about overused photographic themes - and sunrises/sunsets are amongst the most overused ever. Every once in a while however you encounter a shot that is so different and beautiful that you appreciate once more how great such themes can be. There are two things that make this shot by fellow Flickrite Keith Emmerich Photography stand out for me: the gorgeous curvature of the silhouetted buildings with their reflections, and that layer of ice on the water that gives such extraordinary textures both to the surface and to the reflections. Throw in the usual magnificent sunrise colours and it is clear that this is a very special shot.
