The top of the Empire State Building is probably one of the top tourist destinations in Manhattan, but if you get a chance to go, the best time is definitely at sunset. I was there a few years ago and managed to time the queues just right to be up on the observation deck, just as the sun was beginning to set. I shot a lot of images that night, and I’ll share some more in the weeks ahead.

Another photo from my recent trip to Berlin. this is of the famous Brandenburg gate. The light was just right as evening was becoming sunset and the sun was right behind the statues on top of the arch. In the plaza in front of the monument, there were lots of tourists and revellers enjoying the Berlin atmosphere.
Just outside Frankfurt I went to a beautiful picturesque little town/village called Heppenheim. This was a wonderful little place that still has lots of medieval style buildings and is nestled in lots of green German countryside.
Taken on a recent trip to Berlin, this picture is of tourists outside Germany’s parliament building, the The Reichstag in the German capital of Berlin.
