Hudson River At Night

In Manhattan, there are paths that run from Riverside Park, right along the edge of the Hudson River. Piers jut out into the river. The muffled roar of the always-busy streets sifts down from a distance, a reminder that the city is still right there. On a summer night, I set my camera on a bench to steady it and snapped this photo of the river and the New Jersey skyline. Fooled by the bit of light still in the sky, I picked up the camera too soon. That’s how I ended up with the trails of light. It's my favorite photo from that particular day. To me, the light trails represent the energy and sounds of that time and place.
