When you’re tasked to shoot a nature picture and you’re pretty much limited to Brooklyn and Manhattan, there aren’t too many places to go. That was the problem I was facing this week, as I thought about this week’s 52 Frames challenge – Nature.
Despite what you would think, there are quite a few places in New York City where you can get decent nature shots. The city is blessed with several large parks where nature shots can be found and even some of the smaller parks can give you a decent nature picture if you choose your angles correctly.
One of my favorite places to shoot in Manhattan is the North Woods, located in the northwest corner of Central Park. When you walk through the North Woods, it’s very easy to forget that you are smack dab in the middle of the busiest island in the US.
I happen to love waterfall shots and, as it turns out there are some waterfalls in the North Woods. Towards the northern end of the woods, you can find this idyllic scene, which is the shot that I submitted:
What do you think of this shot? Comments, criticisms and critiques are always welcome, encouraged and appreciated.
