The Gates in Central Park

Christo's GATES in New York's Central Park - Feb 2005


OK, it's not wildlife, but it was nonetheless irresistible.  I was fortunate enough to be in New York on my way overseas, and spent a brilliant sunny day wandering through Central Park.  It seemed that everyone in the city was out enjoying these billowing curtains of fabric, and I was no exception.

When I woke up the next morning I discovered that it had snowed overnight  -  and so I went back to the park all over again.  This shot, of the American Elms along Poet's Walk, is one of my favorites.
