Rat Rock

I don't know exactly how this little island got its name, but it's charming, in the right light.
Rat Rock: e-410 with 9-18 @ 11mm

A nice coastal feature and a stunning sky.

Re: Rat Rock

Thanks, Tom, Paul, John, Ed and Rosemary, am glad you liked. I'd seen someone's photo from this spot at a nice rosy dawn, so decided to go there with the 9-18 (a great lens for the unstabilized 410). The light was just right that day. It will be many months before such a view returns.

Re: Rat Rock

Rat Rock is an outcrop of Manhattan schist which protrudes from the Central Park bedrock in Manhattan. It is named after the rats that used to swarm there at night but it is also known as Umpire Rock.[1] It is near the southwest corner of the park, south of the Heckscher Ballfields on the lines of 62nd Street and of 7th Avenue. The outcrop is roughly circular, about 55 feet (17 m) wide and 15 feet (4.6 m) tall with east, west and north faces that each present different climbing problems

Hope that puts the info on your terrific photo, Stewart?
