Verrazano Sunset

Verrazano Sunset

Some sunsets are stunning. This one, with the sunlight sandwiched between the earth and the clouds, took me on a a drive to Caesar's Bay. I grabbed my tripod and quickly setup to capture this unique light. The 8 sec. exposure gave the water its silky look, and smoothed out the already clear sky.

Others who appreciated this amazing light used their cell-phones to capture it. But, cell-phones are no substitute for dedicated camera's. This photo was taken about 40 minutes after sunset. It has an exposure value of +3 (ISO 200, 8.0s, f/11.0). A typical cell-phone would have required a 2 second exposure to similarly capture this scene.

From 1964 until 1981, the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge was the longest suspension bridge in the world. It still remains as the longest suspension bridge in the U.S., connecting the NYC boroughs of Staten Island and Brooklyn.
