I precariously walked out onto a tree fallen into the pond to shoot this perspective, not an act I am likely to take again.

Autumn at Taylortown Reservoir
 
Montville, New Jersey
 
Driving the course of Boonton Avenue from downtown Boonton to its confluence in Butler with Kakeout Road is an easy and relaxing way to get to Route 23 in Morris County. I always like to admire the water and woods around Taylortown Reservoir while driving through.
