On The Waterfront: Midtown Manhattan at Night

I was in Hoboken, NJ this past Friday night and took this shot Midtown Manhattan. It was beautiful, clear night and this vantage point from Hoboken really captures the dramatic cityscape of Midtown. The illuminated spire of the Empire State Building can be seen center and cluster of skyscrapers to the left of center are buildings of the futuristic Hudson Yards.

This picture was taken with my Canon G9X Mk II.

Clouds over Bethlehem, PA

I shot these two pictures with my iPhone SE on Sunday, July 22, 2018, while walking over the Fahy Bridge in Bethlehem, PA. The bridge crosses the Lehigh River and connects Historic Bethlehem with South Bethlehem.

In the distance you can the old Bethlehem Steel plant on the right side of the river.

I modified both photos with the HDR Blue Sky filter on the Tonality App.

My Favorite Pictures from 2017

Here are my favorite photos from 2017. I initially selected just ten photos a couple of weeks ago that I was going present as my favorites of last year, but after multiple reviews of my 2017 photos I wasn’t totally sure I wanted to narrow down my number of favorites to ten. I ended up with sixteen after my final review.

I’ll start with my Pennsylvania Photos

Some Images From the Deep Freeze of 2018 in Pennsylvania

Well, we have finally emerged from the Deep Freeze of 2017/2018 here in Easton, PA and elsewhere in the Northeast. The now famous “Bomb Cyclone” hit us here in the Lehigh Valley, with Arctic like temperatures, but only a few inches of snow.

I did not have the time or inclination to venture outside of this area during the Deep Freeze that took place during the last week of December and first week of January, but I tried to capture in photos and video some of the beautiful images that the Deep Freeze produced in this area.

First off, here is another video I recorded on the Delaware Canal towpath on Jan 7th, the same place I recorded a video on New Year’s Day.

And here are some of my favorite pictures from the Deep Freeze
