Same view, different light

Good morning everyone and welcome to another Monday!  I hope that you all enjoyed your weekend!

Today we head back to the Top of the Rock at Rockefeller Center for a different view than I first shared last week.  (By the way, I will probably intermittently be posting more of this view, along with the view from the Empire State Building, over the next couple weeks, as I have so many to share!)  This view is from the complete opposite side of the building, looking towards Central Park and you can really get a sense for how massive it really is.  Somehow though, I feel like walking through Central Park doesn’t really feel as far as walking the same distance along the streets.  Maybe it is all the hills and twists and turns that make it more interesting!

Anyways, the first shot above was taken just as the sun set over the horizon, as I was waiting for the sun to go down when I was on the side facing the Empire State Building.  After the last rays of light had drifted below the skyline, I jumped over to the Central Park facing side to grab the shot.  The second image, the one directly above, was taken about 45 minutes later, with the city lighting up all over the place and the blue hour in full force!

Thanks for stopping by today everyone, see you all tomorrow!

    I so want to visit central park at some point in my life. It looks rather large and so nicely tucked away in a city that never sleeps.ReplyCancel

    Great shot, both!
    These are outstanding, Dave. I agree, walking through the park is far more interesting than the sidewalk, which makes it seem less of a walk.

    Nice work on these, man.ReplyCancel

    That first shot is awesome! The blocks really go by quick when you are walking through Central Park. There is so much to see. Good stuff. Can’t wait to get back in a couple of weeks. This is one spot I’m going to have to get a shot from.ReplyCancel

    Good stuff Dave. Love that first shot and how the clouds sort of have a leading lines effect.ReplyCancel

    […] Same view, different light – the megapolis of NYC is shown in its true scale here.  Dave DiCello shares an absolutely epic shot of the city skyline with so many details to take in and enjoy, the viewer will spend quite the amount of time going from one point of interest to the next.
