Opening Day at 9-11 Memorial as Night Falls
On September 12, 2011, the 9-11 Memorial in New York City opened to the public.
My ticket was for 6:15 PM and as I strolled around the immense reflecting pool, the hours drifted by and before I knew it it was nighttime. These are some of the photos I shot after sunset.
The Memorial is beautiful by day, but I thought, spectacular at night. It sits in the shadow of the, still under construction, Freedom Tower. The tower lights up in gorgeous colors as the sun goes down.
