Continuing from the past two weeks, here is the other half of my walk through Central Park in Autumn. We move north from the Delacorte, walk along the west side of the reservoir, and up into the loch and pool. Around this part of the walk, the rain stopped and the clouds cleared. The sun was setting as I hit the northern end, creating some very intense lighting.
More trees have changed north of the Delacorte than south of it.
Leaves everywhere and the clouds are starting to clear.
Reaching the reservoir.
There is some nice cloud cover and reflection.
The leaves create a nice view of the jogging trail.
To avoid joggers, I went onto the dirt trail to the west of the reservoir. It was like a tunnel with leaves changing intermittently.
The bridge from the reservoir to the tennis courts.
Looking through the base of the bridge.
Watching the sun set behind the bridge.
A bench by the pool.
The pool with autumn reflection.
So much color.
A relaxing spot on the side of the pool.
Now there’s some red.
Looking west over the pool.
The grotto by Glen Span Arch.
My favorite autumn view.
A wooden bridge in the loch.
The Loch, with leaves floating everywhere.
It was tough to get shots with a group of kids playing on the top of the falls.
Climbing back up the side of the falls.
A bridge in autumn.
Back to the grotto as the sun sets.
Clearly I like this area.
The sun is bringing out all the colors as it sinks lower.
There is very little manipulation of this color. Thank you sun!
A couple looks out on the pond.
Next week: Some holiday shots around midtown, including the Rockefeller tree.
