My name is Alec Halstead, and I've spent most of my life navigating the world through the lens of a camera. As a veteran, I've seen the ugliness and horror that exists, but I've also discovered an extraordinary ability to find beauty in the smallest of details—an ability I feel compelled to share with others.

Last weekend, my wife and I ventured to Manhattan to assist our daughter with a project at her apartment. Before leaving, I made sure to secure three tickets to The Summit at 1 Vanderbilt for a sunset reservation at 5 pm. After completing our task, we took the subway to Grand Central and then walked over to 1 Vanderbilt. The security measures were reminiscent of airport protocols, complete with metal detectors and long lines. A forgotten pocket knife in my bag caused a brief delay, but fortunately, we arrived around 4:45 and were able to bypass most of the queue thanks to our reserved tickets. However, the wait for the elevators felt like an eternity.

As we ascended, my heart sank with the fear of missing the sunset. The day had been gloriously beautiful, with a slight chill in the air and clear skies. Finally reaching the top, we stepped out of the elevator and were greeted by a sight that took my breath away. The sun bathed the city in a warm glow, painting the skyline in vibrant hues. I couldn't help but be awestruck by the view from every angle.

Despite the crowd, I focused my camera, determined to capture the beauty before me. Each shot I took was a testament to the majesty of New York City. Although large crowds usually make me uncomfortable, in that moment, I was completely absorbed by the stunning panorama. As the sun dipped below the horizon, casting the city in twilight, I realized that amidst the chaos and congestion, the unrivaled beauty of New York City remained untarnished.
