Photographer's Note

My last shot, today, from the Head of the Charles Regatta in Boston. This one, also taken from the Weeks footbridge, is of sculls headed east away from Harvard Square. The Charles River Power Plant is the most prominent feature of the riverfront here, unfortunately; an active plant, it has been increasingly regulated to protect its effect on the Charles River itself.

The River used to be a deeply polluted waterway, leading into Boston Harbor, which was notorious for its ecological issues. Both have since been improved tremendously, largely because of increased regulation on sites like the power plant, reducing or eliminating their ability to dump into the waterways.

This shot is one of my favorites from the day because of the dual movement of the sculls and the geese ahead - both in formation, both reducing drag, both headed in a similar direction.
