HDR Manhattanhenge Triptych

Hi there!  I took a lot of photos during the Manhattanhendge event and i thought making a triptych is good way to show several photos at the same time.  In this series you can see the sun cross 42nd Street in NYC.  Enjoy!



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!
