Usually, you cannot see comets over the Manhattan skyline with your naked eye due to all the light produced by the buildings. But because NEOWISE was the brightest comet since Comet Hale-Bopp, which, according to NASA, flew by Earth 23 years ago in 1997, I could undoubtedly see the comet during the break of dawn.NEOWISE was like a giant icy snowball melting into the morning lights on during the captivating magic hour. I hope this stunning, early morning photo will make you happy- even if it's for a moment.   Thank you, Shintaro Ueyama

I began taking a serious interest in photography starting in 2010 and there are two main themes for my photographic activities. The First is "The Moon in New York". I've been regularly collecting moon photos amid New York landmarks. My second interest is "Portrait photography set in New York City" where I try to capture the feeling of this great city. Although I am not formally trained, I do hope you enjoy my vision and can identify with the sincerity and beauty of these images. Thanks, Triangle NY Shintaro Ueyama
