Hi Gert. Welcome back. I'm glad I could contribute to the enjoyment of your visit. As you know, you don't undertake the trip to Bayonne lightly because you're committing a half a day for the round trip. Next time I'll give you directions to Weehawken for some of the best afternoon views in the area.
Thank you Enkarnau for the yellow star. I'm pretty excited about this shot too. Everything was working for me.
Thanks for the "Wow" Bob. That's extra special coming from you as a photog I've followed for a while. I agree with your choices, although I was blessed with a bright day, and I was pleased with most all of what I shot.
Thank you Dalibor. It's good to hear from you. Hello my friend mayaamon, it is always a pleasure when you visit, and welcoe to you roby b. I appreciate your comments.
Be well all,and thanks again.
Amazing skyline. Like
Thank you Luca, and thanks too for the Like. This is an amazing place where you can capture both the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building in a single shot.
I agree with you and your last comment, Hank!! Although the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building seem sharing the same area, we have a new and interesting point of view of that wonderful city!! Greetings, Matteo.
Thanks Matteo for sharing your observation. I'm glad you like this composition.
Beautiful panoramic view! I did not know there was a french named town so close to NY!:). Like. Greetings, Cottius
Greetings Cottius. I had never thought of Bayonne as French, but it clearly is. New York has a distinctly Dutch history, especially when it comes to the early names of the surrounding areas. I did some checking, however, and this is what I learned (thanks for asking):
"Originally inhabited by Native Americans, the region presently known as Bayonne was claimed by the Netherlands after Henry Hudson explored the Hudson River... According to Royden Page Whitcomb's 1904 book,First history of Bayonne, New Jersey, the name Bayonne is speculated to have originated with Baytonne, France, from which Huguenots settled for a year before the founding of New Amsterdam. However, there is no empirical evidence for this notion, which is considered apocryphal. Whitcomb gives more credence to the idea that Erastus Randall, E.C. Bramhall and B.F. Woolsey, who bought the land owned by Jasper and William Cadmus for real estate speculation, named it Bayonne for purposes of real estate speculation, because it was located on the shores of two bays, Newark and New York."
I really like this photo! Congratulations!
Best regards, Gligo
