Sometimes getting there is half the fun. Traveling at high speed in a car and quickly stopping on the side of the road is fine now and again. Slowing down to bike or walking speed is another thing altogether. Stop, look around, see things.
This is the view from the Empire State Building towards the Freedom Tower. Compared to the completely empty skies from a few days earlier, I did get lucky with the clouds. My only regret, since I was not on a tripod, confiscated by building security, is not using a lower ISO. I am considering a large print but need to play with the noise reduction a little bit to see if I can pull it off.
