The only day where Manhattanhenge 2012 was visible - and yes its a day after the peak but still quite nice. Peak days for the May showing were May 29th and 30th. The next opportunity is July 11th and July 12th.
I met a lot of fellow Flickr folks as well as other photographers over the course of the last 4 days, which made the lack of visibility enjoyable nonetheless.
This was shot (without the ND filter like the previous) from the Tudor City bridge over 42nd Street looking west towards New Jersey. I have 1 or 2 more images to post (maybe 1 vertical and another post sunset). ( Text via Steve Kelley [ G+ ], [ Facebook ] and, [ Twitter ] )
