Taken on a mild winter morning, I was the first person to lay down footprints in the fresh blanket of snow on a peaceful walk along the Troy Brook.

Taking the ascending Orange Blaze up Point Mountain and following the Blue Blaze alongside the Musconetcong River made for an intermediate level of hiking with a nice diversity of terrain. The trail mileage of Orange to Blue is approximately 3 miles round trip.

A wide angle and intimate shot near Hog Pen seemed to “animate the emotions” of this tree to me.

December Morning at Round Valley Reservoir

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.

Palisades Cliffs and Hudson River

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.

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.

A vivid morning sky was enough motivation for me to sprint out to the backyard to grab a few shots.
