Pyramid Mountain Natural Historic Area, Morris County, New Jersey
 
Tripod Rock is the most often photographed feature of this park and a formation which I rarely photograph. It is my opinion that creating dynamic nature images of rock formations is quite challenging.

Filming Wood Frogs at Jonathan’s Woods

Denville NJ

A warm March day in Morris County means a loud Spring chorus and a busy afternoon for the local Wood Frogs.

I am out filming with my tripod mounted Canon SL2 + Tamron SP 150-600mm G2 lens

Hiking the Den Brook Trail in Denville

Exploring the Den Brook Trail located off of Openaki / Casterline Road in Denville. I believe the walking trail is only in the early phases of blazing (as of February 2020) however I enjoyed a walk along the scenic brook on a mild sunny winter’s afternoon.

Read more about the upcoming trail here – http://www.denvillenj.org/news_detail_T34_R113.php

Thanks to the Denville municipal trail pixies whom make the trail blazing happen. We know who you are! 🧚

I love walking the rocky bluffs around Splitrock, they are good for wildlife observation and also good for landscape shooting.
