My autumn trek through Central Park began down at the southeast corner and the Gapstow Bridge. The path would continue up the west side of the zoo, past the Shakespeare statue, over to my favorite gazebo, then into the Mall, through Bethesda Terrace by way of the Arcade. The I headed west along the Lake, crossing it at Bow Bridge, and ending in the Ramble.
It was an amazingly weird day for weather, including clouds, rain, and bright sunshine. All it was missing was snow. But I got some really nice images to play around with.
We begin at the Pond and a view of all the leaves changing.
The Gapstow is in full autumn mode.
It is never easy to get this view without people in it.
Gotta love the colors and the reflection.
Piles of leaves everywhere around the bridge.
Shakespeare watches the leaves change.
The Mall has gone yellow.
My gazebo is in technicolor.
It’s cloudy, but the colors are still vibrant.
This tree has so many leaves it can drop all its brown ones and hold onto the numerous green ones.
I always love this view of the arbor.
Benches and leaves: always a good combo.
The Mall is brightly colored.
Welcome to Bethesda Terrace.
There was some live music, which was nice.
The Bow Bridge over a green Lake.
It’s not reflection, it’s algae.
Into the Ramble we go.
This is the end of the Gill as it empties into the Lake.

Next week: We finish up this walk with the northern half of Central Park.
