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.
One of my favorite photographs made in 2011 by the Hudson River in Manhattan. Left alone nature will take over. On the left is before processing an don the right after I warmed it up.
At the entrance to Little Island is the remains of Pier 54. Here’s a bit of history on it. There is more parkland being built in the river.
The plantings are lovely.
The landscaping that is on the Little Island structure. There are new vistas at every turn.
The new manmade park, Little Island, in the Hudson River near where we live is immensely popular. There are benches and now that masks are off in the open we can use them. There are food vendors and live performances. Unfortunately they all sold out at the moment. More to come…
Also on last Sunday at the High Line. I look forward to the opening of Little Island in the Hudson. I photographed 2 of the art instantons that interested me.
Hudson River Park at sunset. I was testing how much light and noise is created when using my my new 2x teleconverter for the Nikkor Z 70-200mm f /2.8 VR S lens on my Nikon Z7. This 2x teleconverter gives the lens a 100% boost (effectively giving me a 140-400mm f/5.6 – loosing ~2 stops of light). I think the results of these photos taken in low light after noise reduction in post are acceptable. Once a long time ago I tried a 2x teleconverter on an f/5.6 lens it lost so much light the images were too grainy to use.
