It isn't too difficult to capture a traditional nature photograph in Manhattan. When I need a little dose of nature, I head to the northern section of Central Park. There are quite a few forested areas, with giant native trees- These areas are mostly fenced and signs are posted letting park visitors know that these are natural areas. While walking along "The Ravine" which eventually leads to this waterfall, I saw a Cooper's hawk, tufted titmice and chickadees, and a flock of about 20 white-throated sparrows. Not bad for an island where most people live in tiny brick, concrete, and steel boxes stacked on top of each other.
