Muggy in Manhattan

    Newer Older

    Looking south at the Empire State Building and beyond on a muggy Friday evening from the Top of the Rock Observation Deck high atop 30 Rock in Manhattan. A couple of nights earlier, the ESB had been lit green, yellow and gold. This was still pretty imposing.

    In the distance you can see the Brooklyn Bridge and the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, which connects Brooklyn and Staten Island. On the right of the frame, you can barely make out the Statue Of Liberty.

    If you want to shoot at sunset, securing a prime vantage point to shoot can be a real battle. The people with point and shoot and cell phone cameras can be brutal.

    And if you have no interest in waiting for the sun to go down and the city to light up, it can be an extreme bore. Just ask my wife.

      Great shot and commentary, know what you mean about waiting for the shot. I sat on my arse in the middle of NY on my own to get a few night shots. I think the passers by just thought that I was some crazy guy. My wife and daughter slept soundly in our hotel room :-)
