These Fort Tryon arches are certainly catnip for a photographer like me, and I took additional shots from the other side looking in as well as inside them before I made my way here. This view is actually less interesting, I think, than the others, except for the very sparsely decorated Christmas tree to the right.
I’ve mentioned before that I am not categorically opposed to moving elements in my compositions when I am shooting outdoors, but that I also disfavor it and do so rarely. Well, I did it here. There was a wire garbage can next to the light pole that really detracted from the shot and was not really inherent to its nature either, so I picked it up and carried it across the path and out of the picture, returning it when done.
