CENTRAL PARK IN THE DARK

The recent newsletter of The Central Park Conservancy was mostly focused on the devastating storm of August 18 that uprooted over 500 trees, many of them very old.  One photo showed fallen trees on every side of a surprisingly upright luminaire, as the magnificent lamp posts that illuminate the park from dusk to dawn are called.

I was reminded of some photographs I took in late September around 6:30 p.m.  Although I lament the shortened days of autumn, the reward of early darkness is the beauty cast by these lights, turning the park into an incandescent fairyland after sunset.
