New York City Skyline. Night. Midtown.
In the blink of an eye the city’s lights twinkle like stars in a universe that rises up from the ground to the surface of a darkening sky.
And all at once, everything else seems to fade away.
This was taken on a frigid evening with the Sony A99 at Gantry Plaza State Park in Queens with wind gusts roaring across the river to the rocks I was teetering on with nothing more than my tripod and utterances of hope that the wind would let up for just a few seconds.
But as I stood there frozen in place for what seemed like the longest 30 seconds of the night, the city’s glow rivaled that of a roaring fire and everything else seemed to pale in comparison.
