Yesterday was another beautiful day in New York. This is a photo of the Gapstow Bridge in Central Park.
The elegant, white building in the back is the luxury Plaza Hotel.

Via the Central Park website: The Gapstow Bridge was originally designed by Jacob Wrey Mould in 1874,
the then-wooden bridge with cast-iron railings suffered great  wear over 20 years.
It was replaced with the current stone structure in 1896, designed by Howard & Caudwell. Built of Manhattan schist,
Gapstow stand 12 feet high, spans 44 feet of water, and stretches 76 feet in its full length.

  1. It almost looks like a painting.

  2. Nice scene. So much to look at. The bridge is very similar to the ones in Yosemite Valley except those are pretty much flat on top.

  3. Beautiful bridge, love that it looks like a little oasis in a big city. It looks so peaceful. Like the processing too.

  4. Hello Nellies! I go away for a few days and come home to find one of my most favourite photos EVER! of NYC on your site!! Beautiful, just love what you've individually done with it. Brilliant.

  5. This is a gorgeous shot, Nellie. I love the way you have composed it, with such attention to foreground, mid-ground, and back-ground. But I also like the Instagram processing on the i-phone. My daughter uses that for some of her shots, too.

  6. Wow! This is a nice one!
    Rembrandt, eat your heart out ;-)

  7. What a delightful photo. I like the treatment you have given it, making it look very nostalgic!
