NY Through the Lens - New York City Photography

The Manhattan Bridge, Brooklyn Bridge, and Brooklyn skyline - view from Two Bridges, Manhattan.

The light after a storm in New York City has its own charm. The rivers calm down from their frenzied co-mingling with the rain and the sun comes out to paint the bridges and skylines in light. And if you are there for the exact moment that all of these elements occur, it’s nothing short of incredible.

I like to wait a few months sometimes before I contemplate certain scenes that I have photographed. The distance between the experience and the nostalgia for the initial experience seems to add a certain complexity to the memory. This particular view was captured with the Sony A99 on an absolutely frigid day back in February shortly after a storm passed through. The river was so choppy that waves were literally slapping up against the edge of where I was standing and splashing onto the concrete. I had never seen the light illuminate the Manhattan Bridge, Brooklyn Bridge, and Brooklyn skyline in such a spectacular way before though. 

I would stand there again a thousand times enduring the river’s icy advances just to get a glimpse of this light.
