Default Two Parks, Two Seasons

Or so it would seem by the leaves on the trees. Central Park is in full autumn swing while Bryant Park is still in late summer mode catching up. They were taken only two days apart so I don't think the difference in days has anything to do with it. Central Park is north of Bryant Park but I don't think its geography, either. Both parks are in NYC and all of NYC is in the northern hemisphere AFAIK. I'm no botanist but I would venture to guess it has to do with the types of trees. Hopefully, that explanation quiets minds I might have unsettled. Thank you for looking.

Central Park.


Bryant Park.

Both nice shots, each with a different feeling. One warm and the other dark.

Thank you, sds, Calicajun.

While I've taken pictures of parks before where a little Photoshopping makes them a little more inviting, Central Park in the fall is the one exception. It is much prettier when you're actually there. I don't know how else to put it other than its designers successfully melded the urban and nature landscapes into a timeless classic.

Central Park is one place I have always wanted to see.

Hi, Calicajun. Central Park is pretty any time of year. But I think it shines best in the fall. The crowds start to dwindle because there is no more hot summer sun to enjoy so there's just peace and quiet amidst the blazing tranquility of nature.

I like the other view of the shot you posted earlier in this thread. The other shot looks more inviting to me.

The meadow shot has an almost mythic peacefulness to it. A little pang of nostalgia got me when I saw it.

Very good, indeed, as are your other shots.
