Shooting at the Edge of Daylight

Another shot of night-time New York – once again, it’s Midtown Manhattan, looking north.  Making this picture was as much about patience and fortitude than anything else – it involved hanging around on a roof thirty-eight storeys up on a windy night, waiting for it to get dark and the city lights to come on, trying to keep my fingers and wits working so I could operate the camera.  I wasn’t actually supposed to be on this roof –  in fact, I had to bluff my way into the building – so “patience and fortitude” were not all I needed to get this shot – but I am glad I made the effort, as the views of Manhattan were great.

    An excellent capture Ian. You’re a man after my own heart! Get out in the cold, get up on high when you can, sit and wait. Worth every second of discomfort (mostly!) Love the toning of this shot too.
