Direct Sunlight on Central Park

Continuing with our day in the park and seeing the Conservatory Garden in the north of Central Park, we use the intense sunlight of the day to show the light and shadow play in various areas of the northern area of the park. This covers some areas I don’t usually explore and side trails I tend to walk by. I’ve come to realize that the only area in Central Park I haven’t gone to, EVER, is the area to the east of the reservoir – which is mostly a path and some plaques.

The NE entrance to the park. There is a nice place for food right there on the opposite corner.

Can't seem to find the name of this bridge, but it goes from the reservoir to the tennis courts.
