New York City - "the city that never sleeps" - is such a vibrant, exciting place to visit. Yet, there are spots around town where you can find a quiet spot to unwind. One of those places is Central Park.

A few years ago, in the fall, I was visiting New York City. After breakfast, I stopped at a nearby coffee shop for a hot cup of coffee to warm me up, then headed for Central Park. It was one of those cool autumn days with a very fine, foggy mist drifting through the air - just enough moisture to wake you up but not get you wet.

Shortly after I entered the park, there was a "lightening" in the cloud cover and I saw this tree with a large, glowing "pool" of golden colored leaves beneath it. As a bonus, the curvature of the pathway just seemed to draw my eyes right to that golden pool of light.

They say, "timing is everything", and I agree to some extent, however, I think luck plays a large part in putting you there at the right time. So make sure you have that camera in hand so you can take advantage of Lady Luck's benevolence!
