Bird's Eye View, Above Central Park

Above Central Park
Photo by myself from Central Park South.

From certain vantage points, Central Park can look like the edge of the world.

Above, the wall of buildings that line Central Park West. The buildings and leafless trees match each other in a sepia tone. Down below are a man made pond, and just above it, an outdoor skating rink.

The neat thing is that just before I took this photo, I saw some red-tailed hawks flying outside. They swooped slow loop-de-loops above the park, looking for lunch. Unfortunately they were too quick for me to get a photo. Drat!

I keep saying that I must go back to NYC if only to visit Central Park. The last and only time I was there it was so freezing that entering the park would have meant hibernation!
