Bow Bridge

How about a little New York City this week?  I had the opportunity to shoot some while in New York on business and thought I’d share some tourist shots I’ve always wanted to capture. Some of the fall colors were still in place while visiting New York and it was a great opportunity to capture some of the reds and ambers that you normally don’t see much of in Colorado. I decided my first stop would be Central Park. I’ve never been to the park, but heard so many wonderful things about the park and wanted to see some of the locations that have been scenes in so many movies.

This is Bow Bridge which was seen in movies such as Spiderman 3, Made of Honor, Keeping the Faith, Autumn in New York, and Highlander, just to name a few.  This bridge is made of cast iron and goes over the lake connecting Cherry Hill to the Ramble.  I was excited to see that this ivory bridge was surrounded by fall colors this afternoon.  It made for a wonderful scene.

Capture Notes:

  • Beautiful shot Rick, glad that some of the colors were still there for you to shoot!

  • Well composed here Rick, I love the fall colors too! Nice reflections!

  • Man is that so pretty. I like how there is a building just barely visible to remind you that this is in the heart of a city. Nicely shot.

  • What a great place to go for a walk. Lovely wrap around color

  • Really nice shot man. It’s got a calm “fall” feel to it.

  • Great shot. I don’t make it up to the park as often as I should. Too bad you missed the snow this weekend.

  • Beautiful composition Rick. Love the fall colors and the stillness of the water.

  • Excellent composition in this shot, Rick. Nice that the Fall colors were still available. I like the way the foliage has framed the bridge.

  • I like that you had the opportunity to visit the park. Such a warm, beautiful place right in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the city. Awesome capture!!
