Tribute in Light

© 2010 Steve Kelley

 

New York City (NYC), Colgate Clock, and 2 observers looking from a park in Jersey City, NJ on September 11, 2010 for the Tribute in Lights.

 

The sparkles are from migratory birds, which during this weekend's 9/11 Tribute in Lights display, an estimated 10,000 migrating birds became attracted to the lights, trapping themselves inside the beams and wasting precious fat resources needed for migration south.
