Summer boating on the Charles

Taken a couple of days ago. This is how almost all of June looked in Boston - gray and cloudy with intermittent periods of rain. July started out with heavy rain and fog, but it can't last forever, can it?

a tranquil photo for today. And by the way, regarding the ghost bird on my site, it truly lived!

Under a scorching sun, I'd like a bit of your rain. Nobody is happy at home...

I'm afraid it can - her's been raining for five weeks:(

Don't worry, the sun is shining, and only hiding just behind the clouds...

I'd love to be in such a beautiful setting.

What a beautifully composed shot. I think we're going to have to get used to taking photos in the rain. No change in sight, at least for the next few days.

I used to think that when I lived in Cleveland. And each year, I was proved wrong.

My Mom just told me that it's been raining non stop there! I'll try to bring the sunshine with me!

Same here! Weirdest June I remember. Too hot, too cloudy and some beautiful blue sky now and then...
Lovely photo though.

Such a contrast to your post on theme day. This is so open and free with a sense of peace to it. Very, very nice shot.

Lovely composition! The sun always comes out eventually, so don't give up.

The weather does not seem to deter the boaters . . . beautiful capture of boating on the Charles.

Lovely and peaceful. How I wish it would rain here! Are we ever content with the weather?

Not forever...but it can last...but cloudy days are wonderful for photography without all that harsh light and contrast!

This is a good example of a superb photograph under cloudy skies...

This is a great image to capture the entire feel of this supposed first month of summer. The boats are docked and ready to head out once the sun pops through the clouds...
