Photo taken from the Rockefeller Plaza.
What makes me post a photo of such a commonly and easily taken view, regardless of how spectacular?
Primarily because of the timing – the lights of the city have only just come on. Specifically, the top of the Empire State Building which is usually all white (or green/red for the holidays) has not yet come on.
In other words – this specific lighting is not commonly captured.
Also it was taken on a Nokia N8 mobile. The Pentax was almost out of batteries and I was saving them for long exposures. (Fittingly, THOSE look fairly common while also being better quality….)
