Magical Moment 607, "On a Clear Day, You Can See Forever"

One of the perks about living in New Jersey, is being able to have the best of 2 worlds. The opportunities, culture, and excitement of New York City, and the suburb comfort of New Jersey. The option to see a world-renown performance on a first class stage, or the simple freedom of being able to drive to a movie and park in a parking lot.

This area is still very much new and foreign for me, a midwest girl. And I've often struggled with our future here. Will we move? Will we stay? I can't see into the future, and that can be frustrating. But one thing I do know, is that today, I can see for a loooong time. And that provide some clarity.



These photos were taken in South Orange, NJ, 20 miles away from the Empire State Building you see in the center.

Your camera and lens setup can cut through the smog... how amazing!!

Just kidding, it is certainly a beautiful sight to see. Two thumbs up for clear days and photographers who share those special moments. :)

Very cool. As you say, we can't necessarily see our futures... but we sure can enjoy the present! I like the perspective of that first shot.

I'm not a big-city person, and the sight of all those buildings would make me want to flee to the country. But I guess I don't mind looking at them from 20 miles away and through your camera lens. :)

Wonderful shots, Elizabeth - probably easier to achieve in winter than in summer. May your future, like your day, be as clear.

Wonderful photos! There are a couple of places here where the whole of the Manhattan skyline opens up. It is quite exhilarating--and definitely magical. Thank you.

Beautiful, clarity is a great thing, especially when dealing with our futures. I think where ever life takes someone with your talent, you'll be fine. The winter skyline is awesome, great job!
