What a fabulous day in NYC. I have to say that I am falling hard for this city, especially Central Park. There is something sincerely breathtaking at every twist and turn of the path….
And then the sun peaks out behind the clouds… and for one brief second you hold your breath, click the shutter button, and hope that your settings were perfect… or close enough for Photoshop to make them look perfect :P
About the Obelisk (Oldest man-made structure in Central Park):
Cleopatra’s Needle is the popular name for each of three Ancient Egyptian obelisks re-erected in London, Paris, and New York City during the nineteenth century.
The London & NY ones are a pair made of red granite, stand about 21 metres (68 ft) high and are inscribed with Egyptian hieroglyphs. They were originally erected in the Egyptian city of Heliopolis 1450 BC. The inscriptions were added about 200 years later by Ramesses II to commemorate his military victories.
