Verrazano Sunset

Verrazano Sun Flare

HDR image of the sun setting behind the Verrazano Narrows Bridge, taken from the Brooklyn side.

Milky Way on the Hudson

Clouds disappeared as we arrived for a NYC night shot with the moon.  But with the way the city lights sparkled in the clear night, it reminded me of an image of the Milky Way.

Fiery Dawn in Manhattan

Early morning rain clouds allowed the sun to peek through at dawn.  Just in time to light up  the clouds behind Manhattan with a nice glow.

September 11th, 2014

Long exposure image of the September 11th Tribute in Lights in Manhattan.  Image was taken from up on the Manhattan Bridge.  Was a great view from up there and plenty of photographers showed up that night.

Evening Downtown

Used a 10-stop filter during sunset to grab this long exposure image of downtown Manhattan.  Process with sepia tones.

City Lights

Long exposure image of downtown Manhattan taken from across the river near the Brooklyn piers.  Can see the twilight sky behind the clouds.

Rainy Morning in Manhattan

Woke up early for an attempt at a sunrise shot before open hockey at the Union Sports Arena.  Weather didn’t cooperate and failed to give me the clouds I wanted.  But it was eerily calm that morning and it set up a nice reflection on the Hudson for a long exposure:

Verrazano-Narrows Bridge at Night

On the way out of Brooklyn, the thunderstorm overhead was starting to lighten up.  So we stopped at Fort Wadsworth in Staten Island to try and capture a nice view of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge.

Another Lightning Strike in Manhattan

Stopped by DUMBO on a Friday night and got caught in a thunderstorm.  Was able to capture this strike on a building before the rain really started coming down and drove us out.

Storm Front over Manhattan

A long exposure view of an approaching storm front over Manhattan.  This image was taken from the eastern stanchion of the Manhattan Bridge looking southwest during the Memorial Day weekend.  Rain and lightning could be seen off in the distance while there were still blue skies behind us. The rain eventually reached us about 15

Lightning over Manhattan

Was lucky enough to grab this image of lightning flashing over Manhattan during a quick photoshoot on the Manhattan Bridge during the Memorial Day weekend.  Rain was starting to get heavy and there wasn’t any cover to attempt more chances.  

Rain in Manhattan

With a half-day at work because of the holiday weekend, and with a thunderstorm approaching, we decided to try and grab some images of the stormy weather over Manhattan.  Took this long exposure image from the eastern stanchion of the Manhattan Bridge looking southwest. The rain was just starting to fall.

Downtown Manhattan Pre-Sunrise

This is a view of downtown Manhattan, at about 20 minutes before sunrise, taken from across the Hudson River in Liberty State park, NJ.  The overcast clouds surprisingly took on a nice, purple-ish hue.  I used a 10-stop filter to extend the shutter speed to help smooth out the water and clouds.  This exposure ended

Central Park Pond

A slightly de-saturated photo of the small bridge spanning the Central Park Pond.  This image was taken during a small photo shoot with Grace and Greg on Saturday, 1/25.  Snow was just starting to fall.

Just entered the “Blue Hour Cityscape Challenge” on DPReview.  Entered one of my long exposure photos taken from the Manhattan Bridge in December.
