The Baltimore Harbor has been a historic seaport since the early 1700s when it was used as a point of entry for the tobacco trade. In 1729 the Carroll Family made available the tract of land now known as the Baltimore Inner Harbor, naming it Baltimore Town, in honor of the 2nd Baron of Baltimore, Cecil Calvert.
Quick post today, friends. While downtown for a boat parade (boats decked out for Christmas) I kept my eye on the sun anticipating an opportunity to create something. As it was setting, I could see it heading toward the backside of the rooftop atrium on the National Aquarium so I decided to wait it out. The image below was the result.

Having setup my tripod on a bench in the distance, I waited until the sun was just dropping below the roof line which decreased it's intensity. This was a 3-shot bracket but I processed only the -2 exposure as a single image in lightroom 4.
