North Woods of Central Park

February 19, 2017  •  6 Comments

This is the Loch in the North Woods of Central Park.  It is located in the middle of Manhattan at roughly what would be 103rd Street and 6th Avenue.  The designers of the park wanted visitors to this area to feel like they were in the Adirondacks. The Loch, Scottish for Lake, had become so silted in that I referred to it as "The Dribble."  The Central Park Conservancy has recently refurbished the entire area and this photo is from my first walk through the new area. The loch has been rerouted in some areas, widened in others.  No longer a dribble.

Amazing. Hard to imagine this is in the middle of Manhattan. I hope I can get down sometime Harvey and take a tour.

What a beautiful photo of a beautiful day there! I also think it's cool you hiked up in to there! Linda had a question. Why is it called "The Loch?" She says that's Scottish for "lake!"
Absolutely love this! Thanks for sharing.

Nice tonal balance - and so emotionally appealing for this rush-rush city. Not only a fine photograph, but also a good reminder that, if like me, one doesn't do meditation, yoga, etc., there's always the healing and centerdness that comes from a walk in The Park.

Beautifully captured, Harvey. Always enjoy your keen eye.
