SUNDAY POST: From a Distance

25 Aug

Jake Sprinter’s SUNDAY POST this week is From a Distance.  Jake says “There will be very little detail visible in the shot, as it is meant to give a general impression rather than specific information.” So, here is my take on the theme.

The first picture shows the Hudson River seen from the New York side with New Jersey on the other side and George Washington Bridge looming in the distance. The second one is another view of the Hudson and the last picture is close to my house in Northern Manhattan.

      Thank you for visiting and the appreciative comments. Nothing soothes me as much as seeing an expanse of water.

    Thanks for reminding me not every bridge is the Golden Gate Beautiful 🙂

      San Franciso to New York – Golden Gate to GWB – each one beautiful and majestic in its own way. Thank you for stopping by.

      It was a cloudy rainy summer day, so although it looks cold it was warm and grey.
