Recently, I had the opportunity to photograph great destinations outside of my normal Southern California beaches. If you have the opportunity to view my portfolio, many of the shots I have featured are focused on these magical Southern California beaches. I do not think anyone would question why not. These beaches are so picturesque and colorful that nature’s perfect backdrop makes for stunning backgrounds.
As I also mentioned in another post, I recently spent time in North Carolina shooting, but this was after I departed from New York City.
And when you have the opportunity to photograph in New York, how can one not stop at Central Park at sunrise to capture one of the most iconic places in the city that never sleeps. The early light in the Central Park plays off the city’s buildings. It’s captured in a yellow/orangish hue that helps to light up the darker path.
These shots, not taken long ago, shows in both the picture above as well as the shot below that there still was snow on the ground in March, 2013. In fact, the city was dusted with snow while I was there and that proved to be an additional incentive to reach Central Park before it all melted away.
In the photograph below, I wanted to capture the feeling that you were crossing the bridge into the heart of New York City. The early morning light helped to illuminate the city buildings.
I have shot this Central Park bridge before (below), but never at sunrise.
