Boston Longfellow Bridge and Clouds

663 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Longfellow Bridge, Boston, Massachusetts

This image of the Longfellow Bridge in Boston was taken from the Cambridge side of the river. The Longfellow is a landmark of Boston, construction began in 1900 and first opened to traffic in 1906. The bridge allowed for automobile traffic and was built with streetcar tracks along one side. Today those tracks are traveled by the MBTA Redline. Unfortunately over the next 100 years the bridge fell into disrepair. It wasn’t until 2013 when a three year long reconstruction plan, along with a $255 million dollar budget would allow for a major overhaul to begin. Luckily they were able to address the significant structural issues while maintaining the historic character of one of Boston’s most important historic bridges. The bridge has also been called the “salt and pepper shaker bridge” after the 4 granite towers you can see in the photo, all 4 towers were part of the restoration project.

Beyond the bridge you can see Back Bay with the John Hancock Tower and the Prudential Buildings towering over the city below. The Berkeley Building, affectionately known as the “Old John Hancock Building,” can be seen just to the left of the John Hancock tower. The Berkeley Building is best known for its lighted weather beacon. A 65 foot tall tower that was installed on the roof in 1950.

This VAST photo was created on a cold and stormy spring night in Boston. I had to be quick taking the 36 photos that compromise this VAST image. The clouds were moving quickly and the light was changing by the minute.

VAST Print™

A VAST Print™ represents the pinnacle of the photographic medium. Each print is a true photograph created specifically for you using light-sensitive paper exposed in a darkroom with the industry's highest precision exposure technique. Your print is then sealed with a shine-enhancing protective glossy coating*, adhered to a sturdy aluminum composite backing, and finished in one of two ready-to-hang formats:

  • Frameless floating display: A hidden mounting brace on the rear gracefully "floats" the print off the wall for a sleek, modern look.
  • Framed display: The print is mounted inside one of our handcrafted 100% wood frames with a decorative separation between the print and the frame so that the print appears to be floating within the frame, providing depth and elegance to the finished photo.

*Note: a non-glossy, satin matte coating is alternatively available on request.
