Spectacular aerial pics - Awesome !

We looked at mountains until dawn, and then when dawn came, it was too pretty for me - there was pink and blue and gold, in the sky, and on icy places, brilliant pink and gold flashes, and the snow was colored too, and I said," Oh," and sighed; and each moment was more beautiful than the one before; and I said, " I love you, Momma." Then I fell asleep in her arms.
That was happiness then.

Very nice aerials. Notice how quickly the density drops beyond Manhattan.

i know what you mean. It sort of throws the whole megalopolis thing out the window in some respects the country side looks so close (but its technically not.) (that particular image sort of reminds me of Montreal). But i think the buildings in Lower manhattan really make the scale mucked up? (if those are the right words) by comparison the the rest of the city (excluding Midtown etc.) But maybe Manhattan would seem larger if the buildings were mostly lowrise-ish....or maybe not.

amzazing pics really like the 2nd pic (the one taken from queens.)

Flash, thanks for capturing my birthplace in such a great way!!! I loved every shot and I hope that next time I visit NYC the day will be just as clear as it seems to be in your photos, so I can take some of my own. Excellent work

I forgot to comment on the photo below. Three downtowns for the price of one: Brooklyn, NYC and Jersey City!!!



Now here is a question for you, Flash: Did you steal our One Progress Plaza and took it to NYC? In the Manhattan section, check out the 3rd major tower from the left

Maybe it looks so small becuase all the pics are meant to capture large portions of the city disminuating the impact of single buildings.
