A Beacon in the Night

A Beacon in the Night ~ Nikon D700 Zeiss 21mm 2.8 lens ~ 15s f14 @ISO 200


This year marks the 12th year of the public art project, a Tribute in Lights, honoring those that fell on 9/11.  It is one of the simplest symbols that continues to unite us all.  It isn’t guaranteed to always be there as it costs the city over $500,000 each year to display. 

So take a moment tonight to find the light – whether it is from a rooftop, bridge, or vantage point.
