The North End of Central Park in Autumn

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.

To avoid joggers, I went onto the dirt trail to the west of the reservoir. It was like a tunnel with leaves changing intermittently.

It was tough to get shots with a group of kids playing on the top of the falls.

There is very little manipulation of this color. Thank you sun!
