Full Moon over the Candy Cane Illuminated Empire State Building
32" x 21" HD Matte Metal
On 12/29/20 my friend and I traveled to Hoboken to shoot the full moon over the Candy Cane illuminated Empire State building. It was frigid evening; and with the wind coming off the Hudson River, we both knew the night would be a challenge keeping warm.
We got some images of the full moon coming up over mid-town Manhattan, Hudson Yards with pastel skies after the sun set, and then shots of lower Manhattan basking in the setting sun.

Hudson Yards after SunsetThe sky turned these cool pastel colors 10 minutes after the sun set behind us.

But as the sun approached the Empire State Building, everything came together nicely.
The Empire State Building's lights are now all multi-color LEDs and those colors are easily changed on a tablet. They used to have several technicians dangerously climb out there and change gels on lights, as they had to do for decades. The Empire State Building now publishes the color of the exterior lights every day for that night on their website, which really helps plan things.
As the moon moved up higher in the sky, the Hudson River was illuminated like I've rarely seen it.
Once it had lined up right over the Empire State Building's Tower - Mission Accomplished - and we got back into our vehicle as quickly as we could.
It was great we found a parking space close by. Thank you Hoboken!
This 32" x 21" HD Matte Metal would be perfect in any home or office setting, and of course, it can be done in other sizes - whatever size you desire as long as the Aspect Ratio (Height x Width) is not changed! It could be cropped thinner, but why?!
Let me know what size may work the best for your home or office and I will get you a price.
And every HD Matte Metal can now have a Custom Wood Frame at a very reasonable price, if desired. This creates a museum piece.
