You don’t have to go out of town to see some spectacular trees. A lot of the best trees are right in the city.
The American Elm.
This shot was taken in Central Park, smack dab in the middle of one of the world’s all time best Big Cities.
New York, New York. The place so nice, they had to name it twice!
I love Central Park. And I love these trees. Being in Central park in autumn… the leaves, the colours… makes you feel like you’re in a movie. You expect to see Woody Allen or Ben Stiller or Meg Ryan & Billy Crystal just out of the corner of your eye.
One of my favourite places in the whole world. How I would love to be standing on the Gapstow Bridge right now.

Regarding this photo, Mr Schoenbohm says, “I went up to the Mall Area in New York City’s Central Park yesterday to capture some of fall color starting to happen in the city. The wide sidewalk here is lined with American Elm. These trees are grand, with large, erratic branches that look and act like the octopus tentacles from 1000 Leagues Under the Sea. (Remember that ride at Disney World? – Ha, I’m getting old). The leaves all change in harmony in this area of the park because it’s the only type of tree around, making for a postcard-like shot. I was even able to capture the famous sidewalk with no tourists and vendors present because of the rain we had yesterday.”
