Remembering Sept. 11

Next Tuesday night, Sept. 11, a few folks are planning an informal, unofficial gathering in the Visitors Parking Lot at DeKorte to look at the Twin Beams of Light in Lower Manhattan.

Mike Maddaloni, who specializes in sunset shots (see above), writes:

"Thursday night I stayed a bit after dark, chatting with a few other photogs, and lo and behold I saw a sliver of light in the sky.

"We waited until it got darker, and sure enough they were testing the beams; they seemed a bit duller than usual so I'm holding out till Tuesday for a proper shoot. But I was able to test it last night, and with the still water from the parking area, its a GREAT spot, reflection in the water, the turnpike really doesn't do much damage to the shot.

"The only thing is the weather. Thursday night was VERY clear so the beams were reaching to space! But if it's hazy/cloudy (like it's predicted to be), we might not even see them from DeKorte, which happened to me last year.

"Either way, I'm looking forward to gathering with whoever wants for as
long as we're permitted Tuesday night."  (Thanks, Mike!)
