Evening Light/ShadowShotSunday



For other cool ShadowShots go to Heyharriet.




The weather in New York this so called summer has been quite batty.
Here is an example. Friday evening about seven, all wet, billowy and thundery.



After the storm has cleared just after eight, 
the setting sun cannons down 23rd Street.


At eight thirty, the sky over the Empire State Building
 is all cotton ball puffy pink.
(None of the colors have been manipulated at all.)

  2. Yes I agree with Sabrina! Love your cotton ball puffy pink photo! It makes the Empire State Building look very cozy all snuggled up against that soft sky :)

  6. Lowering storm clouds
    huddle over the city—
    rain is on the way.

  8. I missed the jagged lightening by a click as the thunderstorm started! Great, familiar looking shots. The sun really is as golden on the buildings as seen and captured!

  14. The sky on friday night was simply amazing! I took a picture too but by the time I rushed to get my camera and went to the rooftop, the pink cotton balls had turned to purple :)

  17. Know what you mean. A different sort of spring/summer for the whole upper U.S. I think. Hope you get some consistent sun soon.

  18. Wow Elizabeth, it's a good thing that you posted that note about the colors. I thought you had changed them-to great effect...they are incredible shots, especially the last two. So intense. BTW I have given you an award. Come over and read my post about a film (The Astronaut Farmer) and the importance of dreaming...You are such a warm person and skilled photographer...modest too. :-) <3

  19. we had the same series of weather "events" here on Long Island Friday night. I am hoping this marks a turning point for more summery weather now.
    love those bright clouds Elizabeth.

  21. That pink fairy floss sky is STUNNING--what a sight! Such sky contrasts in this post...amazing... Happy Day, Elizabeth ((HUGS))

  22. That's one roiling sky, Elizabeth. Yikes.

    Love the pink mammary clouds. Bumps like that mean big trouble up in the troposphere. Glad you were at ground level.

  23. Elizabeth, I am so glad that you had your camera at the ready for that pink cotton ball sky. When I was walking home from the subway that evening, there were many folks on the sidewalks of my block with cameras pointed to the sky.

    Of course, I was tired and cranky after a long day, and did not have my camera with me. Still ... just the sight of that sky cheered me instantly.

  27. I'm really fond of dramatic weather -- illustrated so beautifully in these MAGICAL pictures. I can't believe that I'm saying this, but I wish that you would send some rain my way . . .
