Today I am starting a few days of comparative shots in places, from winter to spring. Central Park is found in the Glebe, a low lying stretch of parkland that I often pass by. I decided to show views of it over time as winter shifted into spring. I photographed from Bank Street, which passes through here. In each case, I'm showing views looking east, and then west. This first pair was at the end of January.
Here we have February views.
These were taken in late March. Note the dogs and their humans in the west stretch. It's quite common to see that in both sections of the park.
These were taken last weekend. We'd had a freezing rain spell some days before, but this day was mild and sunny, and the park looked quite different from its March appearance. It is typical to see pools of meltwater over in the west section in spring. Last year, with the excessive amount of rain we had in late April and into May, the meltwater ranged through a good part of the west section.
