Ok it’s that time of the year again here in NYC. It’s Manhattanhenge (or Manhattan Solstice)! For those who don’t know about it, Manhattanhenge is a semiannual occurrence in which the setting sun aligns with the east–west streets of the main street grid in the borough of Manhattan in New York City.

This was shot the first sunset of Manhattanhenge. On this night the full sun was aligned right in the middle of the avenue.

For the second night of Manhattanhenge I got caught in a rain storm and I ended up with these two shots below. The first one was taken right before rain storm and the second was taken right after the rainstorm…love the rainbow!

  1. cool , like the drama sky with rain storm comming up. Could be photoshopped and good thing this is real.

  2. That’s very interesting to know that you can only get that particular shot for on a few days each year, and why.
