Sunlit Lawn - Central Park

On A Clear Day

New York's Central Park is a busy place. This lawn is typically full of people, hundreds of people who come here to read, sunbathe, toss footballs and Frisbees, or just to enjoy some fresh air while spending time with friends.

On this day, too, the people where there. They were behind me, crammed onto smaller patches of grass. The park was not nearly as peaceful as it seems in the photo.

Nevertheless, and to my great delight, this popular meadow was closed. I'm not sure why; I didn't take time to read the sign. I saw the opportunity to take a very special photo of a park without people, and I got to work on that. 

The weather was perfectly clear. The grass was an amazing rich green for late in the season. And that streak of sunlight channeling through the buildings, that was just pure magic.

This is my favorite photo of the year.
