Reflections of the iconic Manhattan skyline on East River with blazing skies above, Manhattan, New York City.
-- Artist Notes --
Timing is everything! I had taken the subway to Brooklyn from uptown Manhattan as the sun was going down so I could not tell what sort of a sunset we were going to get. The train seemed to take forever so as soon as it pulled into the station, I raced down to the water like a madman as I could see the sun was setting a lot quicker than anticipated.
Sweating and heaving, I only managed to get about 5 shots of this scene in the 2 minutes before the clouds turned a dull grey color and the reflections were no longer vivid. Originally I wanted the lights of the buildings to come on but I think this one in its natural state tells a completely different and more compelling story.
