Default George Washington Bridge

It was a beautiful afternoon at the Palisades park in New Jersey and everything looks great to capture the sunset.

I jumped the fence to separate the visitors area from the cliff but unfortunately Police came and stayed for a few minutes just when the blue hour started.

The 9-19mm is a great lens, distortion is minimal compared to my Nikon 14-24mm f2.8 ( never expect it).

Golden Hour:

A Red Tailed Hack passed in front of the camera



Beginning of the Blue Hour

The police certainly do know how to spoil a perfectly good evening of photography, don't they, LOL...

Looks like it was the perfect evening too. Beautiful vantage point.

LOL, he found me taking pictures in the border of the cliff so threatened me with a ticket, he left and jumped again but I was worried he will return I shoot some with my Nikon set up, if you are interested check my gallery: http://marcelobarrera.zenfolio.com/p...22c4#h60ff75ec

Both shots are excellent and each one brings a different effect. The first photo has a nice warm effect to it and could easily be taken for a morning shot. The second shot has a colder but still a dramatic appearance depicting winter. The GWB is definitely a great subject and a beautiful looking bridge.

Thank you for the feedback James,

It is a beautiful bridge and there is a small red lighthouse next to it, I'll be there next week to capture it with my camera.

Looking forward to seeing more from this location, sorry the fuzz busted up your initial shoot. I can imagine that they are being extra cautious after the recent death of a photographer who was rooftopping.

So, Palisades park is still open. Was one of my favorite tunes in the 60's by Freddy Cannon. Interesting video of the old park in this music video.
