Brooklyn New York…….The Manhattan Bridge is a pure architectural masterpiece and the way it’s lights reflect off the water is visual magic. After looking at all angles, I chose to wait until dark and climb down to the moss and seaweed covered rocks on the Brooklyn side of the bridge. This made for a wonderful composition, but a tricky and slippery place to shoot. A 30 second exposure gave the water reflections a painterly and calm feel, something I felt would give my shot a peaceful look. The Manhattan Bridge is a gateway between cities and a landmark in New York.
