Amongst Giants | Photograph by John Bacaring
“I was working in New York Harbor and the fog was thick. I had my gear with me, so when we unexpectedly finished before lunch, I decided to try and get on a rooftop,” writes #YourShotPhotographer John Bacaring. “With my membership pass for The Top of the Rock (at 30 Rockefeller Plaza), I had unlimited access to the roof deck. I thought this could be epic! When I got to the roof, you could not see a single building. I waited for a few hours for the sunset, and it paid off! 100% no Photoshop.”
“This is a truly breathtaking surreal view of an iconic skyline. It feels like we’re floating in the clouds. Having that membership pass and the patience waiting for the sunset absolutely paid off. Beautiful work John!” — @natgeoyourshot Associate Photo Editor Kristen McNicholas (@kemcnicholas). This photo was selected for the September 21, 2018 edition of our Photos of the Week series.
