And the sky

This was taken on a magical evening with the Sony A99 from the top of the Empire State Building. The sky was thick with fog and rain clouds. It was like peering through a bleary-eyed smile of a dream.
The view is looking north over the skyscrapers and rooftops of midtown Manhattan towards Central Park.
