Morristown National Historic Park hiking
New Jersey Brigade Trail in Winter

Morristown National Historic Park, New Jersey

I took this photograph not far from the trailhead at the Cross Estate Gardens. This trails runs to a Revolutionary War Encampment site, however I did not venture that far on the iced over trail.

Tourne County Park, Morris County NJ

One of my favorite places to walk for wildlife, I have seen owls, hawks, and bears along this short stretch in the past. It is also a quick escape from the suburban sprawl of New Jersey.

The ground was covered with a sheet of ice on this particular day, I considered myself fortunate to only take a slam once.

The Beavers did a good job of creating a leading line with the fell tree for this foggy February landscape.

On this morning, just enough light seeped through the clouds to illuminate mid-ground.

Great skies earlier today!

I found some interesting symmetry and warm morning light. Out shooting with the Canon SL2 200D DSLR + Sigma 17-50mm F/2.8 OS lens. My trusty Manfrotto tripod is with me as always!
