As exciting as its views of New York City are, Edgewater, NJ is always denied the best of a beautiful sunset by the exisitence of the high Palisades which loom over the low river bank which is Edgewater.

Beautiful sunset Hank. Well done.

Regards, Tom

Thanks Tom. As I noted above, Edgewater is always denied the optimum in sunsets because it sits, literally, on the banks of the Hudson River, and the Palisades block the setting sun as it approaches the horizon.

What I found interesting was the silhouettes of the homes and buildings along the ridge. It's definitely a city sunset.

Best regards,

The Palisades can't lessen the impact of that magical sky, Hank, and the variety within the silhouettes adds impact. Excellent work! Marilyn

Thank you all, Marilyn, Julie and Wang yue-zhong. I found this picture recently, and remembered taking it 'cause I was so sure I was missing a remarkable sight, just over the ridge.

Thanks for your kind words Anestis, the sunsets in Edgewater were a tease because you could never get the full effect. This was about teh best I could do.
