On some days, everything falls into place perfectly. Reddit user cbarney recently photographed this breathtaking view of New York City from her balcony in Midtown West, Manhattan. As if the spectacular vista wasn't enough, the NYC resident also managed to capture a whole rainbow arching beautifully over the cityscape, making for one idyllic image of the Big Apple.
Looking at the beautiful colors and clarity of the photo, it's surprising to learn that cbarney took the image using her iPhone, with just a little bit of enhanced contrast. It's amazing what kinds of beautiful scenes people can capture with a good eye, a picturesque setting, and fortunate timing.
The Redditor also snapped a shot of the same view at night, which can be seen below. Although the photo depicts the same impressive skyline as the daytime image, the mood is entirely different, showing the unique energy of the City That Never Sleeps after dark.
