December Morning at Round Valley Reservoir
Hunterdon County New Jersey

The best weather for landscape photography is nearly always scattered clouds and yesterday was no exception. I left my house amid the dark predawn hours in hopes of “striking gold” with a vivid morning sky and ended up getting rewarded.

Here is a video on the creation and controversy surrounding the creation of Round Valley Reservoir – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mhkUyQh_P60

It was clear no other person had walked around this property recently as there was scarcely a deer path to navigate the overgrowth.
