High Line Flower Fun

I love taking pictures of flowers with my AF-S Micro Nikkor 105mm f2.8 G ED lens. I took these Friday morning on the High Line.

High Line Thaw

It is now suddenly very warm in New York City. Some early spring flowers include Witch Hazel and Pussy Willow. Crocii were in the lawn but off limits for photography.

I had fun watching a mocking bird gulp down berries:

High Line – Evening

Twelfth and last in the High Line Series. The night lighting on plants on the High Line makes interesting photography. It is a lovely place for an evening stroll. I hope you enjoyed this series and that it gives you a good feel for the place. Keep this a secret, the best time to visit is in the early morning or evening.

High Line – Plants 2

Tenth in the High Line series. This is part 2 of 2 of plants I photographed on the High Line. The High Line design is a collaboration between James Corner Field Operations (Project Lead), Diller Scofidio + Renfro, and Piet Oudolf. Piet Oudolf is a Dutch garden designer, nurseryman and author. He is a leading figure of the “New Perennial” movement, using bold drifts of herbaceous perennials and grasses which are chosen at for their structure and color.

The High Line’s plants are beautiful in all seasons. “The planting design is inspired by the self-seeded landscape that grew on the out-of-use elevated rail tracks during the 25 years after trains stopped running. The species of perennials, grasses, shrubs and trees were chosen for their hardiness, sustainability, and textural and color variation, with a focus on native species. Many of the species that originally grew on the High Line’s rail bed are incorporated into the park’s landscape.”
