December Morning at Round Valley Reservoir
Hunterdon County New Jersey 12/22/2021
The best weather for landscape photography is nearly always scattered clouds and yesterday was no exception. I left my house amid the dark predawn hours in hopes of “striking gold” with a vivid morning sky and ended up getting rewarded.
Here is a video on the creation and controversy surrounding the creation of Round Valley Reservoir –

Palisades Cliffs and Hudson River, Alpine New Jersey, December 2021
This photo was taken during a recent hike of the Giant Stairs which is not for the fainted hearted. https://www.njhiking.com/giant-stairs/
The Stateline Lookout Area located on the Palisades Interstate Parkway is a nice roadside attraction to view these impressive cliffs. I also recommend a stop inside the Stateline Lookout Cafe. https://www.njpalisades.org/stateline.html
A vivid morning sky was enough motivation for me to sprint out to the backyard to grab a few shots.
