New Yorks Freedom Tower at Sunset. Photograph taken at about 5 pm on an Autumn day with the perfect sunset and the perfect clouds. The panorama reveals the clouds are formed by the heat rising above Manhattan. A New York Microclimate.
The photos have not been doctored or "photo-shopped" other than cropping them and stitching two photographs for the panorama.
|Original Uncropped Photo||Vertical Variation|
I've added a couple of variation photos to the page after realizing the beauty and after having considered my good luck.
I hope you have a chance to view these photos on a large screen - seeing them on a smart phone or even a tablet minimizes their beauty. Take a look on a 22 or 27 inch or larger monitor I feel very lucky to get them.
The sun is only in its same approximate position, vertically and horizontally, for a few days in October and February of each year. The relativity between the clouds, Queens / Manhattan and the sun is perfect The type of clouds are usual to summer but not so in the fall. The local sky is virtually clear except for the micro-climate formed clouds from the heat rising over Manhattan
Professional photographers hope for a life time to get these conditions in photos in a New York setting. The wide open spaces of the West have ample sunsets of this type but they are rare in the East. I stuck my head out the window at just the right moment
