Central Park Early October

Autumn is a season that I love and feel strongly.  At last I was able to go outdoors to make these photographs in these 3 galleries. I was laid low for a few weeks. I’m all better now.

Mist and After

We started the day early when it was still foggy this Sunday, September 17, in Central Park. I hoped for Fall warblers but didn’t see many today. If I take the time to look I can always find some interesting things to photograph.

I’ve been taking it easy and not posting frequently. Photographs from some recent trips to Jamaica Bay NWR and Central Park, New York City.

Flowers CP July

Same hot day I photographed the insects in Central Park. There are are quite a few wildflower beds around the park. The Conservatory Garden is good for flowers too. I love the bokeh on the Nikon 105 mm f 1:208 Micro lens. No special effects. OK, so the last one is a tree.

Anemones on Governors Island

The new Hills on Governors Island are nice and green now and there are wildflower beds here and there. It is so quiet peacful on a weekdays and feels far from the city. We rented a surrey to peddal around the 172-acre island.

Today I had fun working on the flowers I photographed there in Corel Painter 2018.

Bayard Cutting Arboretum

My husband, Marc, and I went to Bayard Cutting Arboretum on Long Island, with two friends yesterday. It was a glorious day for a leisurely stroll and the grounds look lovely at this time of year. In the early evening, we stopped for a fabulous meal at the Jolly Fisherman’s Restaurant in Roslyn on the way back to New York City. It was a lovely day all round, thanks to our friends.
