We are just back from our northeast cruise in New England and Canada, Boston to Montreal to be exact. Cruising is always fun, but it doesn’t always lend itself to good photography.
Why you might ask? It all goes back to our mantra, “its all about the light”.
Most cruise ships are only in port during the day, arriving after sunrise and departing before sunset. This all but eliminates the opportunity to shoot the local scenery in port during the best light. It also means that is usually dark when you might want to shoot the coastline scenery from on deck.
This was the case during our most recent cruise. But as you know, we always try to get the shot.
Given the limitations, here’s the highlights from our cruise – Boston to Montreal.
Remember, it’s all about the light.
