Fall in Central Park
November 23, 2010
I went to take pictures in Central Park last week. It's late in the fall but there are still some leaves left so hopefully I wasn't too late.

I say that because there really is just about a week's window when fall color is at its peak. Weather.com actually graphs fall foliage for different regions in the northeast (where I'm at) to guide visitors for the best time to go. For New York City, peak is around late October. As I took these photos in late November, I am about a month late.

On my ride home daily from New York City to slightly upstate New York, I pass by Harriman State Park along I-87 during sunset and see the hills literally ablaze because of their red and yellow colors. On such occasions I wished I could stop, step out onto the highway, and take pictures. But, sigh, I could not. I just had to feast my eyes on them which, by their beauty, was never ever enough.
