By using a wide angle interchangeable lens I was able to draw in the foreground greenery to add some embellishing to this image.  A good landscape image is all about carefully and knowingly layering the components.

Fog on Kittatinny Point

Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, New Jersey

Kittatinny Point represents, in my mind, the spirit of outdoor recreation. As a boy I longingly admired these mountains on the way to Poconos camping with my neighbors and their dad. This is the site where in the summers of P.C. (Pre-coronavirus), hundreds of outdoor enthusiasts congregate on kayaks, canoes, and tubes to ride the waters of the Delaware River.  Kittatinny Point is also a quick and scenic pulloff to stretch your legs if you are traveling to Pennsylvania on Interstate 80.

The angular lines on frozen Canty’s Lake and disappearing trees in the fog paved the way for winter minimalism.

Silas Condict is a great area for outdoor photography. The parking area is a very short walk from Canty Lake or you can take a nice circular scenic hike on the White Trail.

Waiting out a summer shower paid off well for me this time. This shot was taken about 70 minutes after my prior post here.
