Urban and Rural Landscapes
White birch trees stand out among the last traces of autumn color and reach back to a steely sky. Winter is on the horizon.
Colored reflections of the New York night skyline dance on the waters of the reservoir in Central Park.
These bold red umbrellas contradict their grey, wintery surroundings. They eerily recall Margaret Atwood's Handmaid's Tale.
Slabs of architectural detritus remain on the abandoned end of New York's Roosevelt Island, inhabited by wildlife and the occasional visitor.
A curious intruder peeks into this pastoral scene, wearing a Star of David on his brow. Cheeky bovine!
This beautiful granite ledge in Four Freedoms Park leads the eye straight across the East River to the Sutton Place section of New York City.
A graceful shoreline and dappled sky are reflected in the waters of Long Eddy Stream in Upstate New York.
I couldn't help but to think of Greta Garbo in her desire to be alone when I came upon this quiet, pastoral moment. The paintings of Constable featured similar aged trees and meadows.
I arrived in this meadow just as the black skies of a snow storm moved on, allowing golden sunlight to settle on the new fallen snow.
I listened to the silence of the snow as it fell upon this lake in Central Park. I was almost alone.
There are no words to describe the colors of a New York City sunset. A feeling of joy washes over me as I observe from my urban balcony.
The light of a full moon illuminates the iconic towers of the El Dorado on New York's Central Park West.
The towers of the financial district fill up with many thousands of workers who flow through the Staten Island Ferry terminal each day. This only represents a small portion of the city's daytime population.
