Manhattan Bridge Overpass

Posted on | Shot on at 18:00:00

Looking towards Manhattan across the East River from the DUMBO neighborhood on the Brooklyn side. There was weird atmospheric conditions that night. It was warm and had been pouring rain all day in Manhattan. By that evening though it was just misting slightly and occasionally and some fog was starting to roll in.

I didn’t actually set out to post it this way, but the last week’s photos from New York City span a single day. June 19th, 2009. I spent the whole day walking around the city taking photos. Starting in Central Park and winding up the evening in DUMBO.

  • i really like the diffusion caused by the mist you captured here.. very nice colors as well.. :)

  • love that soft sky and the light on the water. this is really gorgeous.

    funny how some days are like that – a ton of great photographs and then other days it’s a bust. always nice to have a good day.

  • Very atmospheric picture. I think its very good that you have taken the plant with in the picture.
