New York Blues

Continuing with last week’s view of the NY skyline, this photo was taken just a few hours later. We were lucky enough to be there to witness the blue hour as it descended on NYC. As the lights began to shine in the windows of those impossibly tall skyscrapers, I took the opportunity to capture this image, which to this day remains one of my favorite images from that trip.

As usual, I couldn’t decide which version I like better. I’d love to know your thoughts!

Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
