On Januray 9th we went to Jamaica Bay very briefly. It was very cold and windy and I didn’t see many birds. I was feeling a bit moody and these images reflect that (click to view gallery).
Chinatown has been hit hard by the pandemic. They are trying to get people to come. The cheery lanterns are inviting. We went there for dinner and ate in a cubicle outside. The food was good. A cold rain began to fall. Ordering a sizzling plater was a good idea because it kept the food hot. Next time I’ll bring a blanket and a thermal cup for the tea. Someone needs to invent a rechargeable plate warmer for outdoor dining. I couldn’t find one on Amazon to take with me for outdoor winter dining.
After digging out the car we drove to The Riverview Restaurant on Fair Street, off Main Street in Cold Spring, New York, and had a lovely lunch while overlooking the Hudson. Next we drove to have a quick look at Foundry Dock Park. Our final stop was an attempt to find the waterfall at Indian Brook Falls but I could not find the trail head in the snow. I’ll try again in the Spring. (check out the links)
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays
Some pictures I made during the snow storm. New York City had 10.5 inches. Note the snow cushions. Outdoor dining is not on.
I used my wide angle Nikon 14-24 mm 2.8 f lens for these photographs taken at Edwin B. Forsythe NWR, except for the last one with the grasses.
