This is a vantage point seen often on social media, and I wanted to find it, but no one was forthcoming with the info. I started to use Google Maps 3D to try and locate where this was. I knew the ballpark—it had to be northeast of downtown. So after many attempts trying to find this cluster of palm trees, I eventually came across what had to be the location. This area, within Lincoln Heights, has lovely views but is off the beaten path. It was time for me to go make my photograph. That will never get old. I’ve loved that process ever since I was a kid. Here’s to many more in 2018!

I was at Niagara Falls a few weeks ago. It was my first time and it did not disappoint. They have this giant billboard on the side of the road with these super bright lights that change the color of the falls. It was such a sight to see and I would definitely recommend going there if you have not gone. I’m on IG @bryangoffphoto Stop by and say hi!
