*Central Park in Blue and Gold*
I got up brutally early that morning in NYC (jetlag sometimes helps) and made my way to Central Park before sunrise. I had targeted the reservoir, had the tripod ready and was trying to warm my hands while waiting for (hopefully) glorious golden light. I didn’t get it. Since the skyline on the eastern side of the reservoir isn’t all that exciting, I wasn’t happy with the test shots I was getting until I spotted this tree overlooking the reservoir. It allowed me to frame the skyline and add foreground interest just as the sun was rising amidst the clouds.
