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.
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.
I liked the sky transition from clear to clouded with hues of blues and pinks on this January morning. My feet were planted in Pine Island (Orange County NY) and the view is towards Wanted (Sussex County NJ).
