Light equipment today. Only Sony A6400 and Sony E 18-135 with CPL. Beautiful weather, and it wasn't overwhelmingly hot yet.

#1 Manhattan disappears in the distance;)


#2 Another view from the ferry.


#3 Meadow and Manhattan.


#4 St. Cornelius Chapel and the moon.


#5 A view of Manhattan from one of the man-made hills. In fact, half of the island is made of rock excavated during the construction of a subway in New York.


#6 Jersey City is visible too.


#7 And Manhattan again. (You can see Staten Island Ferry)


#8 This is what the roads on the island look like. There are no cars and children can go crazy on their bikes.


#9 There is also a lavender field. Lots of bees and scents.

A very colorful series in an alacritous mood!

I love those fine small color contrasts (yellow, orange, red) in #5, #6, #7 and #8.

Looks like you had a super day!

Not only fun to look at, but also a history lesson. I like #5 most, great overview towards Manhattan Battery Park-Wall Street (am i right?).

Thank you for your kind comments.
Yes, you are right MichelvA :) This is the very tip of Manhattan.
