|Large slabs of Manhattan schist or granite permeate the park and were incorporated into the original landscape design.|
|The moodiness of this scene reminded me a lot of the Hudson River School painters who were popular around the time the planners were designing Central Park.|

I forgot to bring along a cable release so I relied on the built-in shutter delay of the D800 for my slow shutter speeds. I find this delay feature so convenient, I may just give up on using a cable release in situations such as this. You can find the "Exposure Delay Mode" in the "Custom Setting Menu" under "Shooting/display" on most Nikon DSLR cameras. It can be set to a 1, 2, or 3 second delay.
