A recent trip to New York with some new camera equipment was rewarded with piercingly blue skies
above that unrivalled skyline.
A walk across the East river on the Brooklyn bridge offered some amazing photographic opportunities, possibly made even more interesting because of the maintenance planks, boards, wires and cables. The skyline breaks the blue sky while the busy river teams with boats. Helicopters ply the tourist route out to the Statue of Liberty and water taxis let people hop on and off on a route which takes in the aircraft carrier Intrepid with the space shuttle 'parked' on top.
There are so many great areas to explore in New York, but the perspectives you can get from the water must rank as some of the best. I think there is always something special about adding a river, a lake or a sea in the composition.
