The biggest problem I have with working from home is that I am always in the office. That is why I do my best to get out of the house as much as possible. One of my favorite things to do is to go for walks around the city. It’s a great way to take a break from work but also to get a bit of exercise.
When I go on my walks, I will often take my camera. Bringing my camera gives me something to do while I am out, and it makes my walks seem a bit less like exercise. Central Park is one of my favorite places to walk, especially in the spring and summer months.
As someone that spent much of the winter shooting photos in the park, I’ve been looking forward to the warm weather for a while. This week, we had a couple of days of warm weather, some rain, and even a freak snow storm. While I decided not to shoot any photos in the snow, I did manage to shoot a few beautiful spring photos, mostly around sunset, and even a shot or two in the rain.
Armed with my D800 and 105mm f/2.8 and 24-70mm 2.8 lenses, I walked through the Sheep Meadow to Literary Walk, up to the Bethesda Terrace and Fountain, all the way up to the reservoir, and then back down again, stopping to shoot photos along the way. Since it has been a few weeks since the last time I took a walk in the park, I was a bit surprised to see so much color and was really glad that I brought my macro lens with me to shoot some close up photos of the blossoming flowers.
Below are a few of my favorite photos from last week. I would love to know which ones are your favorites, so please feel free to leave a comment.
