For fans of fog and fall foliage.

Last Thursday morning a low cloudbank blanketed New York City as I went out for my morning walk. Above is Manhattan as seen from Pier 1, Brooklyn Bridge Park. The rays of the rising sun reflect from the lower parts of the buildings.
Brooklyn Bridge, as seen from the crest of the ridge on Pier 1.
Brilliant red leaves adorn this tree--pin oak or maple?
In the distance is the tower of the former fireboat station at Fulton Ferry, now home to the Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory.
Walking back along the Brooklyn Heights Promenade, I noticed that the fog had lowered, and that a reflection from a skyscraper was cast on a patch of the East River.
