Day 96/365

Apr 6 - Opening Day


The Boston Red Sox were scheduled to open the baseball season at home against the Tampa Bay Rays today. However, Mother Nature decided otherwise and the game was postponed until tomorrow.


How could I not post a photo of Fenway Park, though, for today? Good luck to all you baseball fans out there!!

    Nice overview! Red Sox vs Angles in October?
  • ah_pics PRO 6y

    Quite possibly, seems to be one of the matchups each year, doesn't it?!
  • Ellen Macdonald PRO 6y

    Beautiful - too bad about that Citgo sign.
  • I am Sina PRO 6y

    great perspective, it is indeed nasty outside.

    Seen in my contacts' photos. (?)

    Dude this weather in April sucks! The White Sox home opener was postponed as well (not that I care... Im a Cubs fan!) haha. Nice areial view of Fenway!
  • Ómar Runólfsson PRO 6y

    Weather looks good to me! Nice view of town
  • Becky 6y

    what a great city shot - and the green of the park stands out
  • Robinsegg 6y

    ..oops. Should be Red Sox and DODGERS in October ;-)
  • ah_pics PRO 6y

    Sox vs. Dodgers would be cool...but I'm sure we'll have to get past the Angels at some point or another. Should be an interesting year all around...
  • guido z 6y

    Oh wow, that is just great. Perfectly symbolic of the winter... a sea of boring brown and gray until at long last the first hint of green arrives to announce the arrival of spring!

    Opening Day & Patriots' Day are the days I most miss being in Boston.
  • Shilpa PRO 6y

    I really like the perspective! Nice city shot.
    Seen in my contacts' photos. (?)
  • DJHuber PRO 6y

    Never seen the Green Monster from that perspective before.
  • Marisa~ 6y

    Do I get shot if I say I'm not a baseball fan? :) I do however really like this shot, it is so interesting. Very nice~~
  • ah_pics PRO 6y

    Marisa - non-baseball fans are welcome too...but I think I can fairly say, that even a non-baseball fan would get chills on their first walk up the ramp to view that Fenway field.

    Tom - I didn't do anything specific to Fenway or the Citgo sign...just adjusted the contrast to correct for the shot through the window. While being a cloudy day, the lighting was really pretty cool from up there. I was pretty impressed...I'm definitely going to have to do it again.
  • Eric Kilby PRO 6y

    I like how Fenway and the Citgo sign 'pop' in this shot, one of the benefits of shooting it before the Fenway fully greens over.
  • NorJon - All Rights Reserved 6y

    Wicked, wicked awesome!
  • The Boss is Back 6y

    Makes me miss that town even more!
  • Anshu PRO 6y

    beautiful aerial shot...
  • CB 357 6y

    Fantastic shot and I really like the way that Fenway is naturally highlighted here ... like an omen of some sort :-)
  • NaWaF 6y

    very nice
