Diamond Beach

After Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon on July 14 we went for a very short visit to to Diamond Beach across the road late in the afternoon. By then a thick fog was rolling in.

NYPL Bryant Park

After the big snow. I used bracketing for an HDR process. The lion outside the main NY pubic library makes a statement and the icy fountain in Bryant Park behind it is amazing.

Ice in Central Park

On Saturday the temperatures were brutally cold in NYC but there were a few patches of open water in The Lake in Central Park where lots of Canada Geese and a few Northern Shovelers were crowded together.

Today (February 2) we are in the midst of a blizzard. It’s to rough to go out in it. Maybe I’ll get to go to the park before it melts later in the week between appointments.

The first picture has an ice formation that looks like a bird.

West Point Foundry Preserve

There are ruins and a few buildings left over form when the foundry was active. I was hoping for a waterfall but didn’t find it. Here’s a link to some of its history. Sometime I would like to visit the Putnam Museum.

Foundry Brook

We drove up to Cold Springs, New York on Saturday. Marc was concerned about the possibility of ice on the roads. The roads were clear but the parking lot at Foundry Brook was not. We got stuck. Luckily a kind couple helped dig out the car. I had never been to West Point Foundry Brook Preserve (location and about) before. It was lovely in the snow. More to come…
