We’re just saying that Tuesday’s sunset was particularly magical.

    1. My office on the 5th floor of a West 14th Street building looks south, and I have a nice-but-nothing-to-write-home-about view of Freedom Tower.

      Yet, after Sunday’s chill and the early week warming, and yesterday’s torrent and wind, the sunset was indeed particularly magical, if not for visual reasons than simply because it followed all the winter weather.

      Great photos, nice color to them!

      Either this is a sunrise looking east or if it is sunset then the caption cannot be accurate, since it shows buildings and there are not any looking west from Riverside Drive ???

      A sunset’s colors are not just seen in the west. Light from the setting sun reflects off clouds (as well as buildings and treetops) in other directions, often producing beautiful rosy tones, especially shortly after the actual sunset. Yesterday, there were indeed dramatic pink and purplish clouds lighting up the northern and eastern skies, with the quarter moon appearing in breaks of blue. Gorgeous!

      Great photos!

      Nice pictures. I think I will start taking photos, and make them more beautiful, and submit pictures to WSR also. Very nice.

      Are you saying they’re Photo Shopped? I have some pics with the same colors from Maine (pre digital camera and/or PS). Maybe we just have some excellent photographers here.
