Happy Accident

Sometimes the greatest moments are captured by chance. I had recently been shooting some long exposures with my Fuji X100 on the East River. I handed the Fuji over to my girlfriend, Emily, as I focused on a timelapse I was shooting with my 7D. Not knowing the shutter was set for a 30 second exposure, Emily pointed the camera at the horizon and took this image, and it turned out to be my favorite photo from the evening.
