Leaving Manhattan

I’m going to finish out the week with a couple of shots from the Brooklyn Bridge. It is one of the oldest suspension bridges in the United States and connects Manhattan to Brooklyn over the East River.  The bridge accommodates 6 lanes of vehicle traffic with a separate center walkway for pedestrian and bike traffic.  One evening after capturing some skyline shots from Brooklyn I decided to walk back across the bridge and capture some images from the bridge.  This is a long exposure of traffic leaving Manhattan with my camera facing the Manhattan skyline.

  • Nice, Rick. Awesome vantage point! Wish I had walked the bridge at night when I was there.

  • Awesome shot Rick! Great POV of this iconic structure. Random Fact: Did you know the designer of the bridge walked 21 elephants across it to prove that is was stable to the people that would use it everyday? Love this shot!

    Outstanding POV of the Manhattan skyline and the light trails add a great touch.
