empire state building

    Newer Older

    I was stuck in-transit at New York with a flight delay, so I decided to risk it and take a quick trip into Manhattan and see what I could see. It was dusk and I ended up at the empire state building. There was not enough time to wait in the queue so I took a couple of shots and walked down Fifth Avenue. It was a close call to get back to JFK in time, but my taxi driver drove like a demon....

      Nice one!

      I tried very hard to capture it when I was there but my camera just doesn't have the zoom on it:(

      Excellent shot. Taken at dusk has given the picture plenty of atmosphere.!!

      thanks everyone, it came out even better than I imagined - I love the sky, but it was just serendipity.....

      I got some strange looks as I had to use a trash can as a makeshift tripod...

      @moxiee: sorry for you lack of zoom, but don't worry - size isn't everything!!!
