Camera:Canon EOS 40D

At the (very aptly named) Sunset Zoo, in Manhattan.

We’re passholders at the zoo, which means that, occasionally, we get invited to special events at the zoo. This weekend they held a sort of “Sunset Zoo After Dark” event after the zoo closed. Of course, that meant that we showed up right at the golden hour of photography (it’s the hour-and-a-half or so right before sunset or right after sunrise).

It’s so hard not to take good pictures around that time.


ISO 100, 1/125s, f6.3, 65mm
