A stroll through the Park

On my last trip to New York I spent a little bit of time in Central Park at a couple different times of day.  On this particular day, the last night day that I was in the city, I stopped by around sunset.  My original plan was to capture reflections of the Manhattan skyline the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir.  Unfortunately, I grossly misjudged how long it was going to take my to walk from 33rd Street up to the reservoir, which is a little over halfway through the Park.  Seeing as I was there a bit too early and not wanting to waste my last night there just sitting around, I snapped a few shots and was on my way.  The first one above was of one of the trees that was one I took on my way back, just around the corner from the Mall.  The sun was coming through the trees nicely and I couldn’t resist the sun flare.

The next one is of one of the trees that was around the trail that surrounds the reservoir.  The trees had just bloomed probably a few days before and the evening light was hitting them perfectly!  No HDR for this one either.

Finally I have one of the walking trail itself, and I am standing under the tree that I featured in the previous shot.

Thanks for stopping by today everyone.  See you all tomorrow.

    Wow, so envious you were able to capture the cherry blossoms in the park. I wanted to do that, but wasn’t able to get out to the city in time this year…again.ReplyCancel
