Sunrise and Empire State Building – 2016


6:52 AM EST. A closer look (click on for detail) reveals the red beacon light on top of the Empire State Building’s antenna

This morning’s sunrise had to wait a bit due to a deck of clouds on the eastern horizon. But continuing my quest to capture the sun behind New York City’s iconic Empire State Building,  proved rewarding, with some interesting shots. 


(Above) 6:56 AM – Bingo! Sliding to the right, the sun is seen here directly above the building’s spire, originally designed as a mooring for dirigibles!  


6:58 AM. Note the shadows cast across the New Jersey meadowlands.

All these images were taken 13.8 miles NW of the building, with frozen fingers!

As usual, click on the images for a closer look, and thanks for viewing. Comments are always welcome. M 🙂

  1. Wow . . . nice shots.

    All the more impressive that they are taken with frozen fingers. I use a camera to take photos. Not sure I would want to freeze my fingers, and besides, mine don’t have lenses or memory slots.
