Autumn in the Southern Half of Central Park

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.
