For the last month I have been quite ill so I was unable to get out and take photos, let alone explore. (Hence no blog posts for the last several weeks) Now that I am finally feeling better, Nina surprised me with tickets to Top of the Rock at 30 Rockefeller Plaza in Manhattan. We got there early to get some lunch and get a good spot for sunset. I was switching between my Canon 70-200mm 2.8, 24-70mm 2.8, and 16-35mm2.8 but eventually settled on the 24-70mm because it is the most versatile and as the crowd got larger, I would not be able to get the room to safely swap lenses after sunset. That is usually my go-to lens when I know I can only bring one lens or need to save weight and space while out and about and it also happens to be the first L-series lens I ever purchased.
Aside from some cold fingers, we had a great time and ended up getting a really awesome sunset with plenty of color. I wish we stayed longer to watch the colors fade as all of the lights went on throughout the city, but with all of the people packing in and our stomachs growling, we decided to pack it in and head back for dinner. I am looking forward to more exploring and photo adventures throughout the winter now that I am feeling back to normal! Now if we could only get some snow….
