Central Park 1 of 3

I’m a member of Sierra Photo NYC – New York City Sierra Club Photography Committee. We went to Central Park for a photoshoot on November 4th 2021. I made a lot of photographs. It was hard to choose what to post so I’ll show half of them over the next several posts.

Inselteich and Tornower-Niederung

On the day of my birthday Marc and I toured the area around Lubben. We stopped for a mosquito laden picnic in the woods. A highlight for me was being able to get some photographs of Cranes in a field and Red Kites following a tractor in a field.

I wanted a photograph of this lovely mansion with a tower. I was only able to photograph the tower. I was chased off and told no photographs. The owner actually drove out in his car to make us leave. I was not standing in his property.

Near the end of the excursion, I made Marc stop the car. I saw a mushroom by the side of the road that was the size of a football. Wish I had known it was edible, I would have picked it and its companion for dinner.

The next to last photo shows a windfarm in the distance. Germany has loads of wind turbines.

Lubben Countryside

We went for a walk around Lubben with our family on October 12, 2021. The Fall weather was lovely.

Greenbrook

Greenbrook Nature Sanctuary small private place on the Palisades in New Jersey that we can get access to with a key because we are members. I added a circle created using polar coordinates in Photoshop to the picture of the falls.

Cheesequake Plants

Read about Cheesequake in the post before this one: Cheesequake Birds – Sherry Felix – port4u. It is less than an hour’s drive from lower Manhattan. The recent rains made it optimal for many varieties of fungi to fruit.

Green-Wood Flora

6th and last in the Green-Wood Cemetery series. Here’s a link to their site: Green-Wood – National Historic Landmark in Brooklyn, NY. There is loads of information, history and maps there.
