winter sky

Zeiss 28mm f2 Lens

In a way, this is a sister image to burning. It was taken with the same lens, the Zeiss 28mm f2, and the same camera, the Canon 1DX. However, what I love about this image is the opposite of what I love about burning… with burning I love the intense red orange in the low horizon, but with ‘winter sky’ I love the incredible shades of blue, purple, and grey in the sky that only exist for a few seconds while the sun is setting, and only in the late fall / early winter. It’s a one-of-a-kind photo in my collection that would take an incredible stroke of luck to duplicate since nature is the one who really owns this, not me.

four freedoms fall

canon 85mm f1.2 lens

If you haven’t been to the new FDR Four Freedoms Park at the southern tip of Roosevelt Island, put it on your schedule the next time you have a free afternoon.

The park has I don’t know how many cubic feet of beautiful white marble, and everything is arranged so linear and perfectly that it makes you realize very quickly how much effort went into this project. There’s a beautiful lawn for relaxing and sunning, and endless angles for anyone who likes to play with perspective in their drawing, painting, or photography. Plus, if you walk down to the most southern tip of the park, you can literally see all of southern Manhattan… it’s stunning!
