The Morning Fog Over New York City

You generally think of cityscape photography as casted under a beautiful yellow Sun and blue sky. And so do I. So much so that I focus my moments during blue hour. But each and every once in a while — convention must be challenged. And over the past few days there has been more fog in the early, New York City, morning than usual.

So I decided to capitalize on this moment. It was not easy. On this particular morning it was raining hard. The wind was rather brutal. And the Upper Bay was rough. The Staten Island Ferry was being bounced around like a small boat. And after 30 plus shots — I was only able to walk away with 3 keepers.

This one being the best of the three.
