High Point Monument and Observation Platform
 
Sussex, New Jersey
 
The observation platform at High Point is located off the short but scenic driving loop. This is a very convenient way to get acquainted with High Point State Park, though not fully comprehensive of the diverse terrain to be found.

Real estate work brought me to Sussex County today, a good excuse to get outdoors with the camera for an hour.

Autumn at Ken Lockwood Gorge; #1

What is one to do on a rainy, cool, and overcast day on New Jersey?  Take nature photographs of course 🙂

This was only my second visit to the Ken Lockwood Gorge Wildlife Management Area.  I wasn’t certain if it was a great place for landscape photos. With the element of running water in a nature area and also clouded skies, I figured it was worth a try… It was worth it.

New Jersey Landscape Photography

Brilliant yellow leaves line the banks of the South Branch of the Raritan River in New Jersey.

This was one of the broadest densities of yellow leaves that I laid my eyes on, and it also made a great vantage point for the s-curve of the river.

Photographed with the Tamron 14-150mm Di III lens, a circular polarizing filter, and the Olympus PEN E-PL3 micro four thirds camera.  Exposure settings were: 0.8s F/11 ISO 200
