Clock Tower – downtown White Plains NY

One of a series of photos I took in downtown White Plains at dusk.  Some things just have a different look at twilight.  The clock tower looks quite dramatic all lit up with the vibrant sunset in the background.  Wish I could say it was more inspiring by the light of day. 

I was somewhat lucky because I happened along at the right time of day and was able to park my car about a block away from the site that I wanted to shoot.  Since the sky changes rapidly at that time of day, being able to find a spot for the car that wasn’t far from the location was absolutely essential!  I was also fortunate that the new camera that  I have been breaking in has such a great sensor.  My previous camera would have required a tripod for this to work at all and I didn’t have one on me that day!

Hi Debbie - Parking spots in that part of town are as rare as hens teeth.  I was crazy lucky. And the speed at which the sun sets when its that low made it essential that I wouldn't have to go far.  The clock tower really has a different feel at night.

Thanks S. Leanne...It was a lucky shot given how dark it was and the fact that I didn't have a tripod.  I somehow managed to do it hand-held.  But I was literally chasing that sunset to get a good downtown view.
