October Nature in Central Park

Same day as the the post before this one. The weather was perfect.

Blue Mountain Lake Trees

The Adirondacks was spectacularly beautiful in October in 2007. I’d like to go back there some day.

Blue Mountain Lake in Gold

Fall is such a lovely time of year to see upstate New York.

Green-Wood Tree

I liked how the early morning sun made the reddish leaves on this tree glow.

Cherries in Central Park

I never seem to tire of cherry trees in bloom. Some photographed on the SPNYC photo shoot.

Spring is early. The magnolias are finished but the cherries were not. Sunday at the New York Botanical Garden in, Bronx, New York, April 10, 2022.

After visiting the garden we ate Italian food at a restaurant on Arthur Avenue. I enjoy doing that after spending time outdoors and working up an appetite.

Greenbrook in November

A little private nature sanctuary in Tenafly, New Jersey. It is on the Palisades with a view of the Hudson River towards New York City.


Hallormsstaðaskógur – Wikipedia is by the lake Lagarfljót. Seeing trees on July 16 was a novelty. The country lost most of its trees more than a thousand years ago, when Viking settlers cut down the forests within 50 years for shipbuilding or to clear the land for farming and pasture. The forests originally covered one-quarter of the Iceland. Icelanders are working to get some of those forests back, to improve and stabilize soils, help agriculture, and fight climate change. Iceland is considered the least forested country in Europe. Forests in Iceland are so rare, or their trees so young, that people joke that those lost in the woods only need to stand up.
