Fotos On the Fly – The Tappan Zee Bridge at dusk…

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams NY Realty - 120 Bloomingdale Road #101, White Plains NY 10605


A few weeks ago I took a couple of night shots of the Tappan Zee Bridge from Tarrytown NY.  The sky was foggy that night and the river was like glass    One evening about 10 days ago, I found myself  near the same location once again just as the sun was going down.  The conditions were different, it was a nice night with some cloud cover, but the river was far more choppy.  So I set up the tripod with the idea of taking several photos  at different shutter speeds and ISO settings as the sun went down.   It was frankly an exercise, but a few of the photos came out really well, and at the risk of being redundant, I decided to post them here today…

Another thing to note is that twilight photography can be a very effective way to market some homes.  A house looks very different at dusk, and can sometimes be displayed with spectacular results in low light.

These are great pictures.  I always love looking at this bridge and the water.  Cool shot with lights reflecting.

Ruthmarie, those will be historic shots soon.  Is it's new replacement out of the planning stage yet?

Oooh la la.  Those are great.  I have a dusk photo for one of my listings and it is stunning.  All the lights are on in the house and in the garage.  It is a great way to stand out in the crowd.

Ruthmarie:  You are the bestest at cool photos, esp. of our fav Westchester bridge.  We just had Paul Feiner from Greenburgh as a guest speaker at my Rotary and he gave us great details about saving the bridge as a "destination" and walking/biking vehicle when the new one goes in about 300 yards up river.  We'll see!
