The Sorcerer's Apprentice

Last Monday I joined my friends from the Plymouth Digital Photographers Club for a day in Boston. We spent the afternoon on George's Island visiting the civil war fort and photographing Boston Harbor from the ferry.

After dinner, three of us walked back to a parking garage near the aquarium. We were treated to a magical scene of young children playing in a fountain in front of the Custom House Clock Tower.

The water from the fountain reflected the different colors of lights that surrounded the park, making for a truly beautiful scene. The kids could not have been any cuter. I had a blast photographing them.

One girl stood off to the side of the fountain and pretended to direct the water as if she were a conductor. She reminded me of the Sorcerer's Apprentice magically shooting colorful water into the night sky.

What a fun night! The only thing that could have been better would be to jump in and play in the fountain too!

I made these photos hand held at ISO 6400. I am quite pleased by my D7000's lack of noise at such a high ISO!

  1. Very nice, Greg. Great catch. I, too am impressed with your results. I am also heartened, as I have a D700 and hope to be able to get similar results in low light situations.
