Nature in Newark

I was driving back into NYC the other day via the Lincoln Tunnel sitting in traffic in Newark, NJ.  The sun was setting and somehow I ended up lined up with these three metal tower structures. Newark is know for many thing but not generally  for its beauty. I have no idea what the purpose of these towers are, but they created a very beautiful view, juxtaposing human structures with nature in a very unlikely place.

Glass Skies

Something that strikes me about the landscape of New York city almost every day is the interaction of the urban landscape with its natural surroundings. It’s easy to get caught up in all the structures, construction and hustle and bustle. But, if you take the time to look around, the glass and metal of the city often offer wonderful reflections and views of the natural world around.

On blue skied days, I love how the glass buildings the ripple in the sunlight and mirror the clouds. In what is likely to be the first of many posts of the subject of the city versus nature, I’d like to share some of my favorite photos of the glass skies of New York.
