The Statue of Liberty

>> Saturday, September 25, 2010

We spent half of the day at Liberty Island. The Statue of Liberty was a gift from France to the people of United States.It is a symbol of freedom and independence for the people of United States. The statue was designed by a young French sculptor and the statue's  steel framework was designed  by Gustave Eiffel the famous engineer who  designed The  Eiffel Tower in Paris. The statue was constructed in Paris and took 9 years to be completed before it was sent to United States.

This photo is taken at Battery Park  under bright sun. 
I adjusted the f-number and shutter speed to get this effect
