New York - Williamsburg Bridge

I just spent six days in New York. It was cold and snowy, but on a couple of the days the sun was shining brightly and made it perfect for some landscape photography shots. I was walking over Williamsburg Bridge around four in the afternoon and really wanted to take a picture of the Hudson, whilst facing the sun. Unfortunately, there is square wire mesh up all along the bridge. At the time I thought this was going to spoil any possible image, but now looking at this picture, I think it came out great. Things aren't always as bad as they first seem...

I also wanted to do a bit of panning and catch a yellow cab. After waiting a few minutes in position near a set of traffic lights this NYPD car presented itself instead.

It was my first time in New York and it struck me that it is such a photogenic city. Such tall buildings and straight lines make it easy to come up with some great shots. Often you find yourself in places that remind you of film sets.
