New York City on any given day can feel like a lot. Which is why the few nature escapes in the city are so invaluable. Places like the beautifully historic Inwood Park, uptown, and then of course, the equally historic Central Park. Despite its complicated and racist history, Central Park has become a haven for urban dwellers who also love nature, for birdwatchers, and even for artists and musicians around the world. I love coming here and losing myself through its many trails, camera in hand.
But no season is more exciting to photograph than fall. If I miss the early morning light, than I wait for the even more perfect late afternoon glow. And Central Park never fails to deliver. Here are some of my favorite shots.
