    This trip inspired me to make a point of capturing aerial images every trip I take. I also learned that you don't need a magical sky for beauty to present itself. & Fall is my favorite. In the helicopter looking south on Central Park West - dividing the architecture and Central park, on November 5th 2014, a day before my 27th birthday. The flight was my birthday gift. Taken with Canon 5D Mark iii & EF24-70mm f/4L IS USM - edited in Lightroom (I previously incorrectly had this as Park Ave)

    I agree with Your Shot photographer Michelle Zheng who commented, "A brilliant capture of this dividing line between the two different worlds in NYC! It's such a beautiful city and it's lovely to see it from above! The brilliant autumn colours make a difference in making a photo look much more in-depth sometimes and you captured just that! Well done."
