Here's a shot from Day 6. After we crossed under the George Washington Bridge, we were welcomed by fireboats from New York and New Jersey. The sun had just managed to burn off the morning fog and we were beginning to see the skyscrapers of Manhattan. The “John D. McKean”, a gigantic fireboat from FDNY provided a grand water display, which came within inches of soaking us a few times. This shot was taken as the sun and spray combined to make a rainbow seemingly right above the gondola. I have many favorite photos from the expedition, but this is definately in my top five.
