Central Park Winter Scenery - Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir - Black & White Photo

Wintry sky over Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir, Central Park

I took this photograph in the middle of winter, during a long walk in Central Park around Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir.

The day had started out all gray with a thick layer of clouds, but by the end of the afternoon, the wintry sky started to change when some weak sun rays tried to make their way through the clouds, lighting them and mirroring them on the ice covering the Reservoir.

Upper West Side in the distance showcases the famous Eldorado -at the center of the line of buildings-, thus creating a contrast with this winter scenery. A quiet evanescent moment just a block away from the buzzing Fifth Avenue.
