Smooth Waters Ahead

Shot:
A long exposure view of the Hudson River with the GWB in the background. The idea for this photo was to focus mainly on the rocks and make that the main viewpoint in this photo.

GWB Light Up

Shot:
The George Washington Bridge towers get lit up every major holiday. There is also a large flag that suspends during the day time on each holiday. I got kicked out the park trying to get the photo I have wanted for a while now so this one will have to do.

Let Down Long Exposure

Shot:
On Memorial Day, myself as well as a few others flocked to the Fort Lee Memorial Park to get the coveted shot of the bridge all lit up for the holiday. While I was getting situated waiting for the sun to set and the lights to come on I got this nice super long exposure of the bridge. It was shortly after the police came up and set, park is closed… leave. I was a disappointing feeling that I was not able to get the photo I long awaited for.
