Proud and Tall


Photo Information
I've lived in New York for 15 years and still haven't gone out to see the statue. I really have no desire to climb the stairs to get up to it so I like to view it from afar. We found this cool little place in Red Hook, Brooklyn with a beach and a small pier. It so happens, the sun sets right behind the statue each night. If you could only imagine being the rookie that I am with a new camera, I was shooting this like there was never going to be another sunset, changing lenses like a mad woman. There was very little done to this, I think I just added a little clarity.

It was most certainly worth the effort. My hubby always laughs at me when I start juggling lenses like a mad woman Love it.

Very eyecatching...the almost black against the orange works well.

You really have an eye for a picture - and what a picture this one is!
I shall be there in November so I might even search for your beach
