Morning Rays on Sunrise Mountain Road

Morning Rays on Sunrise Mountain Road
Stokes State Forest, Sussex County, New Jersey

This photo was taken on a recent outing. I quickly jumped out of my car to seize the opportunity of morning sunlight piercing through clearing fog in the forest. The good photo opportunities are always fleeting.

Mule Bridge and Fog at Waterloo Village NJ

Mule Bridge and Fog
Waterloo Village, Byram, New Jersey

On a recent peaceful morning nature walk I was fortunate to capture a bit of fog burning off of the Musconetcong River. Surely this mule bridge is one of the most photographed bridges in Northern New Jersey.

FYI – the bridge is slated for replacement –

Kayaking Potash Lake


Kayaking around Potash Lake and Ramapo River in Oakland NJ
It was all fun and games until a large dark cloud came overhead and the wind picked up.
All photos taken with my typical kayaking setup which is the Tamron 18-400mm VC lens + Canon SL2.  A pretty versatile tool and portable enough for me to fit inside my dry bag.

Jenny Jump State Forest, Warren County NJ
Treefrogs are usually difficult to find if you are looking for them. Finding this frog was purely accidental and my purpose of the photograph was to show the frog’s habitat.
