Last night's image altered and some slightly new techniques, not to forget and to explore.
Feel confident lately creating, although I need to work with larger image files.
About the name. Cherry Hill is a section in Central Park just adjacent to the row boat lake, a location used in many movies to show New Yorkers in love. Adjacent to this hill is an area of the Park called The Ramble which has undergrowth which attracts birds in migration because there is cover, and that means a better chance of survival.
Cherry Hill is a long gentle slope with lawn and many large, huge shade trees.
Birds go there and it is a delight to be there at sunrise. The links in this paragraph are to New World warblers, small songbirds that pass through Manhattan, some species starting from wintering grounds in the Amazon and headed towards Canada.
