Boston in December

Over the holidays, we went to Massachusetts to visit family. During the trip, we took a bus into Boston and spent saw various parts of the city. My favorite place in Boston was the Leonard P. Zakim Bunker Hill Memorial Bridge. It's a new, modern cable bridge that was built as part of the "Big Dig".

I was hoping to create a panoramic of the Boston skyline at night. This was the closest I got, taken from the top of the Battle of Bunker Hill (June 17, 1775) monument, on top of Breed's Hill. It is a 221 foot (67 m) granite obelisk built between 1827 and 1843 in Charlestown, Massachusetts. There are 294 steps to the top. This panoramic was taken through a window at the top of the monument.
