    love the pink and the bits of light from the traffic.

  3. I love your morning shots. The silhouettes of the buildings are beautiful. Do I see vegetation on the top of the right-hand roof?

  9. Nice pic! I love that the lower part is still night with the sparkling lights while above the dawn light comes creeping in to claim back the city from the mysteries of the night.

  10. Only you could make the city buildings and street look like a mountain and valley. Gorgeous!

  11. That just astounds me... you have a wonderful eye for dramatic shots... I look at those buildings and I have to laugh - I've never been higher than the 6th floor in my entire life... lol

  17. Getting harder to get those morning shots now isn't it? Pretty soon you're gonna have to get a night vision lens!

  18. That looks so eerie, the brightening sky and the dark street!

  19. Nice sky and a great photo.

    Love the early morning tinge of pink in the clouds and the headlights of the cars down in the canyon between the buildings.

    Well done.

    Thanks for the visit,
    Troy and Martha

  20. ditto, ditto, ditto. All kidding aside, this is a wonderful shot. I love the shots from all over the world, we live in different places, but see the same sky.

  21. My goodness, what a deep, deep canyon! How modest the cars look in that cityscape!

  22. It's amazing how the buildings block out the sky...I can never imagine a tornado in New York City...it just won't come to my imagination...great shots
