New York - from the "Top of the Rock"

We visited (very cold) New York a few weeks ago. It has been many years since I've visited the state where I grew up, and even longer since I saw snow (at least twenty years!). We suffered the sub-freezing temperatures and in exchange, I got some amazing shots.

Before we went to Rockefeller Center, I read somewhere that tripods and monopods were not allowed. Once the sun starts going down it makes it harder to get a clear shot without a tripod. After doing a little research, I saw someone post that you can bring one of those Gorillapods up there and put in on the railing.  So after searching through some of the camera stores I finally found one that didn't cost a fortune. Sadly, I was not able to visit either of the famous photography stores, B&H Photo or Adorama, as BOTH of these stores are closed on Saturdays! I was so looking forward to it... oh well. Anyway, the little tiny flexible tripod worked GREAT and I'm sure I'll find plenty of opportunities to use it now.


We went to the Top of the Rock for sunset. It cost quite a bit but it was worth it. I insisted on going up far in advance of the expected sunset time so I could secure the perfect location. I did get the perfect location, but I swear the sun never took so long to set. The 4 degree windchill factor was quite intense up there.








Thanks for sticking with me Gregg!
