Fort Tryon Park

Fort Tryon Park is a public park in upper (north) Manhattan, by the Hudson River. In late spring, it is a very colourful place with flowers of many types – as this Persian onion (also known as Dutch garlic, scientific name Allium hollandicum).

Kolgrafarfjörður, again

Almost exactly one year ago, random.org picked one of the photos I took at Kolgrafarfjörður Viewpoint for my weekly post. Now it’s picking another one of them.

Kolgrafarfjörður is a fjord on the northern coast of the Snæfellsnes peninsula, on Iceland’s west coast. It sits just a couple of kilometres to the east of Kirkjufell, the most photographed mountain in Iceland. The whole peninsula is full of amazing targets for photography.
