Writing with Light

View from Brooklyn Heights

Happy New Year! I hope you all enjoyed the holidays. I took a much-needed break the last couple of weeks to recharge my batteries. My family and I headed to New York for a few days and enjoyed some wonderful family time, but of course I found a little time for photography as well.

Before I get into todays image I wanted to let you know that Ian Plant has released a new ebook, Yellowstone – Light & Life. This glorious 80 page book is filled with Ian’s beautiful images and the best part is that it’s completely FREE. You can pick it up at the Dreamscapes store here.

2014 is shaping up to be a busy year but in a good way. I spent some of my time off working on my PhoDOGraphy by Edith Levy site which will be ready for a sneak peek later in the week. I’ll also be participating in a group photography exhibition in downtown Toronto later this month and I’ll be sharing more information on that later in the week as well.

Now on to today’s image. This was taken at the bottom of the Brooklyn Heights Promenade just before sunrise on our first morning in New York. What a fantastic spot for views of the Manhattan skyline.

    Beautiful image of the skyline Edith. Believe it or not, I have not shot from this vanatage point before despite all of my time in the Big Apple. I will rectify that this year.

    • It’s a wonderful spot Len. Beautiful views of lower Manhattan, The Broolyn & Manhattan bridges and Statue of Liberty. I’ll be posting more from this spot and DUMBO later this week.

  7. Beautiful shot. I had planned to go down to that park for that shot, but somehow didn’t have time while I was there. I miss NY and need to go back!

    • Thank you so much David. It’s such a lovely spot. I have to get back down there in the summer when I can actually sit on a bench for awhile without freezing and enjoy the view.
