When it gets bitterly cold, there can be an effect called Arctic Sea Smoke in which the cold air and warmer ocean water cause mist to come off the water. With temps of -5F/-22C yesterday morning, I ventured down to Boston to make some images. The Boston Harbor Hotel offered a great back patio area from which to shoot and a Starbucks in which to warm up. This is one of the images I made while waiting for the sun to do its thing. That tower in the background is the control tower for Boston’s Logan Airport.
Thank you to meteorologist Harvey Leonard for his help in planning this shoot.
