Manhattan Magic

"Manhattanhenge" happens a few times a year, when the sun sets directly between the buildings. "It’s a challenging shot because you can’t stare at the light for so long, so you need to be ready to capture it at the right time," explains Your Shot photographer Josh Namdar. "Besides the great sun rays, I really liked the long shadows that the sun was creating during that time." This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
