Boathouse Row Sunset

Boathouse Row is one of the most famous landmarks in Philadelphia. Just upstream from the Philadelphia Water Works, Boathouse Row is a collection of (surprise!) boathouses used by local rowing teams. Each boathouse is trimmed with LED lights that come on at sunrise, making a beautiful display along the tree-lined river banks. It's another spot in Philadelphia that seems so different from the most urban cores in America.

As the Summer 2016 Strawberry moon was rising behind me, I was turned around by the brilliant purple glow lighting up the sky to the east over the boathouses.
