High Line Shine

 

One of the jewels of New York City is the High Line.

The High Line is a public park built on an historic freight rail line elevated above the streets on Manhattan’s West Side. Almost 1.5 miles long, the High Line runs through three of Manhattan’s most dynamic neighborhoods: the Meatpacking District, West Chelsea, and Hell’s Kitchen/Clinton.

Walking high above the city streets, surrounded by gorgeous plantings, the High Line provides unique views of the Big Apple, placing you up-close-and-personal with some fabulous architecture.

On this sunny autumn afternoon, this was me and my camera, capturing some High Line shine.

  1. I was enthralled with the High Line and can see why it would be perfect for you. I told my daughters I could spend all day there. You’ve captured the light on the buildings beautifully.

  2. Great photos. Your images really show why this is a special place.

  3. Yes, sounds like a wonderful place- Your images are stunning, really interesting architecture.

  4. Hi, Brenda! Love the High LIne…and your images of it! I have been told that the building featured in your second image – it’s design was inspired by the look of a pleated skirt. I’ve never really checked to see if its true. But, one can imagine it is..
    My favourite of your series is the first shot. The yellow light and reflection edging its way into the slivery-blue light. Makes me think of an abstract sun and sky! I just love it!

  5. Incredible photos! I would love to be able to walk along the High Line!

  6. Excellent. I love the blues. My favorites are the first two–they are more abstract. Seems a fun place to walk.

  7. Thanks for taking us along…..what a fun place to walk! These are all so different and interesting. I’m very intrigued by the shiny waves image.

  8. Wow, I didn’t know about the High Line. It sounds amazing and I love these images that you’ve captured. Beautiful light and reflections.

I greatly appreciate your comments!
