Sunday Evening Lights

The colors on the Empire State Building tonight were just perfect for the end of a beautiful Autumn day here in NYC.  I looked on the ESB website, and tonight's colors are to honor the 15th Anniversary of Publicolor Day - which I just found out is a very interesting non-profit organization.  There has been a lot of recent controversy around the lighting at the Empire State Building, but I won't that ruin my enjoyment of our north view.  The first photo of the ESB was taken at dusk, and the second was taken at 8pm - full darkness.

This moon shot was taking using my zoom lens on max and then cropping in tight on my computer.  I've tried this before when the moon was fuller, and it was too bright - I just got a big blurry light.

Cool pictures Kate!

I wondered why the ESB was red and orange this weekend and I thought it was just set to be festive for Publicolor is a very interesting non profit.
