Fall Colors on Trees and Reflections from Harlem Meer, Central Park, New York City
Landscape photograph of the trees surrounding Harlem Meer showing their fall colors from Central Park, New York City. Built as part of a northward extension of Central Park, Harlem Meer occupies much of the northeast corner of the park. Looking like an idyllic picture postcard, the foliage around the Meer sports its November hues or reds, yellows, and tans. Reflected in the still waters, the colors shimmer and provide a tranquil repose. Manhattan, with its drive and intensity, is indicated by the building revealed above the trees in the center background of the picture. Without this hint, the image could well be from a country setting far from the metropolis of New York.
