Golden Ginkgo

As I was rushing along this morning, I noticed all the ginkgo trees along 46th Street had turned a stunning shade of yellow, but sadly I didn’t have my camera with me. This evening, however, as I was on my way back from Zuccotti Park with my camera in tow, I took a few shots of the ginkgo leaves glimmering under the street lights. If the leaves are still on them tomorrow I may try and capture some daylight photos, but I won’t hold my breath, as one gust of wind is enough to send these delicate leaves cascading in flurries to the ground.  These nighttime pictures are fun, though.

  1. Ginkgo foliage is so beautiful. I especially love the next-to-last image where you can really see the fan shaped golden leaves lighting up against the darker ones in the background. Lovely photos!

    1. I do love the foliage; gingko trees were not really on my radar before New York – but they’re everywhere here. The streets in Midtown are lined with them. So pretty in autumn – and so, umm, pungent when they’re in fruit!
