Oh sweet! Not just an awesome sky, but that's a perfect angle of the bridge. And the tram car is the icing. Bravo!

Have you every ridden that tram?

Flea said...

What a very blue sky! I love it!

Probably my favorite parts of NYC - and this is very odd, considering my aversion to open heights - are the bridges. I especially like taking the elevated over the Williamsburg, and there's something thrilling - if a bit scary - about going from Brooklyn to Manhattan on the Manhattan Bridge.

Damned if you would ever get me into the Roosevelt Island Tram, though! :-)

Slow down, you move too fast...
Lookin' for fun and feelin' groovy!

Fantastic blue sky and what a journey they make in the sky here - I love your angle :)

Sylvia K said...

What a terrific capture, Daryl, as usual. I love Kim-d's quote from the Simon and Garfunkle song! Fits the scene!! Love it! Have a great weekend!

Always great shots of NYC!

Merisi said...

Two extraordinary creations in front of a perfect sky!

Eaglesbrother said...

Good shot..I spend a few days in the big hospital next to that bridge..Hospital od Special Surgery..many years ago.

MyMaracas said...

What a great shot. You caught the tram at just the right moment, and the blue sky and steel lacework look spectacular from that angle.

I've just been catching up on your recent posts. It's hard to choose a favorite, but I do love the bus in the snow and the Christmas greens in the trash. You seem to be able to find "the shot" everywhere you go.

Artlover said...

Great composition and Contrasts. Great shot.

Carmi said...

I LOVE this shot! I need another trip to NYC - with more than a quick free morning to walk the streets and shoot - if I'm going to come home with anything remotely approaching this.

You've reduced the massive scale of these engineering marvels to something anyone can grab a hold of. Great, thinking photography, as ever.

Carolyn Ford said...

Amazing perspective on that bridge and the tram car is an added bonus! And, on top of all that is a glorious blue sky! Wow!

how cool is that a tram above a bridge...fab!

L. D. Burgus said...

I really like your shot of the bridge. They braced them to be sure they would never fall down.

Rune said...

Absolutely great picture!

bobbie said...

As always, your sky is terrific! I would enjoy the tram,I'm sure.

Tammy said...

Your sky is gorgeous!
Ours is rain, rain, rain. Bah.

Rob Inukshuk said...

Another stunning City view, Daryl.

Erin said...

awesome capture...like all the steel against the sky and the itty bitty tram floating way up there...

steviewren said...

What a cheerful sky. It's been dreary here too much this winter. I need a string of sunny days to perk me up.

Country Girl said...

Your skies are always interesting.

Secret Mom Thoughts said...

Nice capture. I wouldn't want to ride in the tram though.

SandyCarlson said...

So many ways to get thayuh from heeyuh. Beautiful thing.

Jacob said...

I luv this shot, too, Daryl! You've really put up some terrific compositions lately...I'm taking notes!

Thanks re: closing...tomorrow at 10, then out to celebrate!

Louis la Vache said...

Very good, Daryl!
What a fine, clear blue sky contrasted against the muchdarker lower part of the image. Nice capture of the geometry of the tram. Reach around, pat yourself on the back and say "Atta girl!"
;-)

The triangles! The triangles! Look at how many they are, can you imagine having to count them all?

The first thing I zoom in one are all those triangles - the other shapes draw the eye too because they stand out in their non-triangle-ness.

This comment brought to you by sheer exhaustion and a strong desire for a vacation.

But even so, love the triangles!

Deb said...

where is this tram? I would never have guessed it to reside in NY.

love the new photo!!!

Lily Hydrangea said...

Beautiful shot Daryl! Have you ever taken this tram? I think I did when I was a teenager - barely remember it.

Alexander said...

Very interesting sight to take. I like the cable car that pass by at the top. It adds that special feeling to the photo. Beautiful.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Shannara said...

Lovely pic.

Gary Heller said...

Great Daryl! I always thought the Queensboro (59th street bridge)bridge was one of our ugliest spans here but i like how you have it against the blue sky and with the tram car there for scale.
Wonderful work!

Pat said...

Great shots of the geometric shapes in the bridge and lines of the tram car against the pale blue sky!

nonizamboni said...

A giant erector set! And who rides in that tram?
Lovely blue sky and a delightful visit, as always, my friend!

Hilary said...

I see more dedel than stein. ;)

Carver said...

You captured the bridge so well against that beautiful sky.

Louise said...

I love, love this! Trams do something for me.

Just FYI, there is no way I can catch up at this point, so I'm going to try to show up a little more frequently and stay caught up. And please be under no obligation to respond to all comments!
