Bright blossom lights shadow frollick

    Blissful moment - I was crouched there in the grass trying to take a good photo of that all lit up tree canopy when these children jumped into the frame. Barely had time to push the shutter button, and they were gone. This is the shot, uncropped. I don't think it could have been staged better, tho the thought occured to me later.

    HInt for gwnyc: it was sunday morning, the children were well dressed, must have been to mass nearby. And it 's a high point in Manhattan.

    Better seen large. Explored

      Based on your clues, I want to give this a guess. Is it up by St. John the Divine? Though... I don't go up there that much, so I don't know if there's a park that closeby. But it's pretty high!

      @Jill - good try, it's the right side of the city - but not that close but reasonable distance you wouldnt call it close - and by high I meant altitudinal high ...

      Moment captured; quite beautiful and dreamy and the black and white makes it look like a time gone by.

      What a Splendid photo!
      That tree...Its dappled shadow;
      those children...the dark and sunlit
      mandalas at the base of the tree's trunk.
      Cheers, Doug
