Wollman Skating Rink by night - Central Park

The Wollman Skating Rink is a classic New York attraction. It is an outdoor ice skating rink located in the southern corner of Central Park near Fifth Avenue.

This panoramic photograph was captured during winter just after the blue hour so the city lights could be visible against a night sky. I chose a slow shutter speed to capture the movement of the skaters contrasting with the motionless ice and Manhattan skyscrapers in the background. A great typical view of Central Park in winter.
