Central Park winter landscape. Angel of the Waters. New York City.
The silence that engulfs the world after a snowfall is deafening.
All heartbeats, all footsteps, all meandering thoughts and evocations are wrapped in a heavy blanket of snow.
Trees cease reaching for the sky, weighed down by the weight of the sky’s tears of joy and there is scarcely a breath to be heard.
Winter muffles the earth silencing it’s yearnings,
and all at once there is peace.
The definitive crown jewel of Central Park, Angel of the Waters is one of the most famous and universally loved fountains in the world. Also known as Bethesda Fountain, it was designed by Emma Stebbins.
This particular photo of a snow-covered Central Park was taken during a break in a bitter blizzard that hit New York City a few winters ago. The snowstorm dropped a few feet of snow on the city covering the trees and iconic sights in Central Park in a gorgeous coating of icy beauty.
