Upper Bay

Views of Manhattan from the Upper Bay of New York Harbor from the Staten Island Ferry on January 20, 2022. It was raining and snowing in the mourning but it cleared up by 1 PM.

Tomorrow evening I will be giving a Zoom presentation for Sierra Photo NYC on our trip to Iceland in 2021. You are welcome to attend – just send in your email address at Sierra Photo NYC – New York City Sierra Club Photography Committee .

CP Snow Details

Odd things attract me. Here are a few that I captured during the January 8th 2022 photowalk with Sierra Photo NYC.

CP Snowy Landscapes

I photographed these landscapes during the Sierra Photo NYC walk on January 8th 2022. I added skies to the last four to enhance the scenes.

CP Winter Birds

On Saturday January 8th 2022 I joined up with the Sierra Photo NYC group for an afternoon photo shoot. We covered The Lake and part of the Ramble. The highlight for me was a very tame Wood Duck (Aix sponsa) who came so close I had to back off to photograph him. House Finches were at the feeders in the Ramble. Two more posts on this day to follow.

Hudson Snow

First snow this year at Hudson River Park in Greenwich Village. I was mystified by a string of circular ice cubes (next to last photo). I figured it out: The snow plow treads left them.

Horatio and Abingdon Snow

Our first snowfall of this winter in NYC was on January 7, 2022. I was excited to go out and photograph it. I antiqued the first one (we live in that building on the corner) and selectively altered saturation in the others. I toned down the color the strong color of the buildings to put the focus on the snow. Only two are straight B&W.

GV Doors by Marc

Today I’m posting some Greenwich Village Doors photographed by Marc Felix. One mosoleum gate from Green-Wood in Brooklyn. The bulldog over the old stable used to be the emblem of Wells Fargo.
