Nature and Landscapes
Urban and City
On top of the Rockefeller Centre in New York - great sight, tons of people. I was spending several hours there while waiting for the sunset colours to show up. It was fun to see all the people that were on the level below me running from one side of the balcony to the other. That is not to say that I did not do the same!
This is a spot where, during the summer, one has to fight to stand there! So so so many images are being taken here - but for a good reason! Dozens of small Gondolas, amazing blue water, the stunning view in the background... Worth seeing!
You know how they say New York is the City that never sleeps? Well, that might be true if you are in the midst of things, but when you are walking around Pier 2 on the east side of Brooklyn Bridge, then things can suddenly calm down a lot.
This spot here was more of a coincidence - I walked back from my sunset session and had planned to cross Brooklyn Bridge to get back to my hotel - but on the way, I saw another photographer that stood in the dark. I got interested and joined - and loved the scene!! This spot can easily be missed if you do not know it is there.
So I was there for a while and realized that this spot must be super famous - within about 30 min we were 4 people taking pictures with heavy duty tripods and minutes of exposure. I had some great conversations and left the place with a photographer from Germany (Stefan, check him out here - his work is truly brilliant: https://www.facebook.com/StefanTiesing.Photography/) and we continued walking through the streets at night for a while.
In any case, it felt strange to stand in this particular place as it was so quiet that it felt wrong to even talk loudly.
