Newark, New Jersey, isn’t exactly known as a jewel of the American northeast. But from certain vantage points, it can actually be quite pretty. Glittery, even.

A recent job in the Newark area required hanging out of a helicopter to get some footage. On the way back from the site, I took the opportunity to grab a few stills. We passed over downtown Newark, Newark Liberty International Airport, and the lights of Baywater Refinery. The lights of Manhattan get all the love, but the lights of Newark from above have their own beauty.

All of the shots above were taken with a Nikon D800 in DX crop with a Nikon 18-200VR, handheld with a Kenyon KS-6 gyro stabilizer. It wasn’t an ideal situation for stills–we were moving at a pretty good clip and didn’t have time to hover, but the combination of the D800’s high ISO performance and the gyro worked surprisingly well.

Travel Insurance For Your Trip to United States

I never travel without travel insurance, and I've run into several situations where I've had to make claims. I consider it essential.

But shopping for travel insurance can be a pain and confusing. Thankfully, there are some travel insurance comparison sites that show you a wide range of plans, make it easy to compare coverage, and can save you money at the same time. And the coverage can be much better tailored to your specific needs than the checkbox offering at travel booking sites or through your credit card.

These are some good places to shop for travel insurance for your next trip to United States :

Hopefully, you won't need it, but if something goes wrong, you'll sure be glad you have it!
