Skywatch Friday

The sky's IN this photo, but I took it FROM the
sky too.  (Yes, I'm afraid I took a couple of photos when 
I wasn't exactly supposed to.)  That's New
Jersey, Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty, Staten
Island on the right, and Manhattan, Brooklyn,
Governor's Island on the left—and right up the middle, the 
Hudson River, where Capt. Sullenberger
brought his plane down safely a year ago today.

[See more Skywatch here.]


  1. Amazing view from so high up. So you snuck some photos! Good for you! Happy skywatching...

  2. Ah, you snuck some terrific shots! Wow! Yes, good for you!! Thanks for sharing them! Have a great weekend!


  3. such pretty shimmering light!
    I'm glad you survived this shot Alexa.

  4. I'm a bit thick...why shouldn't you have taken these photos? All I can think of is the time when I was about to take a photo not so long before we landed and the stewardess, whoops, flight attendant told me to switch off my 'electronic' equipment...oh. I never thought of my camera being able to interfere in signals...can it? Anyway, I'm glad you sneaked these shots...

  5. Love the glittering light on the water.

  6. I guess through the haze counts! Interesting and good to remember the day the Captain used his know-how to the fullest and made a life saving
