    I took this in the spring after an early evening Rainstorm. Now of course, I wish I took 1000 more.
    Just wanted to share in this time of sadness.

    Beautiful picture Ric.

    Hey Ric, do you mind if I use it as my desktop background?

    Dude, that is awesome.
    I have some buddies at work (ex-work now) that I will pass this on to, with proper credit given of course.
    Nice work.

    That does strike a nerve, Ric. It's a beautiful shot, but very disturbing. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for the kudos guys. You may use it in any way that youd like. I have more shots, and I'll try and root them up and put them on the site.
    It's really funny how much you take things for granted. I adored my view when I first moved in here some years ago. After a while -- I still loved it of course -- but I sort of grew accustomed to it.
    Now I would gladly give anything to have it back again.
    Thanks again, and I'll let you know when I have the others up.

    Ric, that's an amazing picture you took. I can't wait to see the other pictures you took.

    Ric,
    I just sent that to my co-workers in NJ. What a great pic. Maybe you should send it into Life Magazine or something. That is just glorious!

    You know how you get a shiver down your spine, when you see something that affects you..... well I just got it.
    I'm listening to 'The Thin Red Line' soundtrack and the music swelled to a stirring climax, as the picture finished loading - appropriate!
    Absolutely awesome pic!

    Ric,
    Great shot. I guess sometimes we take things for granted until they are gone. I'm originally from Bayonne but moved to Morris County a few years ago. Last month we went to Bayonne to visit my folks (and attend a memorial service for a high school friend who was killed in the tragedy) and as we crossed the Turnpike extension bridge the NYC skyline seemed empty and it gave my wife and I a very eerie feeling. I remember as a kid growing up that although Bayonne is fairly close to NYC the Twin Towers were the only buildings visible from the 3rd floor of my parents house. Later that day I went up there, looked out the window and got that same eerie feeling. I've been collecting photos, posters, puzzles, etc. of these magnificent towers so thanks for a spectacular addition to the collection.

    Hey Rick!
    I think I was standing on that exact same pier 2 weeks ago, after watching a movie at this mall in Jersey City. I remember thinking about a HTFer who lived there and had an awesome view of Manhattan. Now I know who it is [​IMG]

    That sure a pretty picture with great detail.
    Guess I need to get one of those Kodak Digital Cameras. What's the pixel rating on that one?

    Great pictures Ric!
    I also have a DC-290. And I also love it! [​IMG] Any one interested in seeing more of what a DC-290 can do, I've got a bunch of pictures, taken with my camera, on my Vacation Pictures page of my web site. The DC-290 is out of production, but based on my experiences with it, I've talked two friends into buying the newer DC-4800 and they're both thrilled with theirs as well.

    I just wanted to give this one bump just in case some people didn't get a chance to see the new photos I added.
    Thanks [​IMG]

    Ric - fantastic shots. Thanks for sharing them with us. Still difficult to grasp what happened. The NYC skyline doesn't look right without the WTC towers.
    Pat - you did your friends a great service. I own the Kodak DC4800 and it is a great camera. If anyone is thinking about purchasing a digital camera in time for the holidays or as a gift, I highly recommend it.

    Jez, still hard for me to comprehend that those HUGE towers are gone... they were soo large...

    Ric -
    Thanks for those great shots. The first image is now on the desktop of my home PC.
    Ive been searching for a shot with my former building (7WTC - same main address as the rest of the buildings but was connected to the Plaza by the pedestrian bridge over Vesey Street - it collapsed 9/11 in the afternoon) in it, and your winter shot has it. Its the tallest building to the left of the WTC and WFC (which is in the foreground). Although it wasnt as photogenic as the towers, since I worked there for 8 years it did hold a special place for me.
    And thanks for bumping since I didnt see these the first time around.
    - Larry
