The Mall, Central Park ~ New York City

At the heart of Central Park in NYC lays “The Mall”, a wide promenade that was created to allow visitors to the park the opportunity to mix and mingle and congregate in an open space. Its bordered on both sides by beautiful American Elms, that stretch their limbs in interesting ways. Its a peaceful, yet busy, place in the heart of Manhattan.

Had great light the morning I shot this- the Mall was alive with people and pets… and the trees seemed especially alive in the morning glow. Snapped this shot during a break in our DLWS workshop, and finished it using a NIK filter called Glamor Glow. I use this filter sparingly because it tends to blur things a bit, but here, it brought out the magic of those majestic trees as they prepare for the long coming winter.

If you haven’t been to The Mall, I would urge you to go… a truly amazing place to see… and just be…

Enjoy! And HAPPY THANKSGIVING everyone!
