Fall Emotions – Cow Point Medford New Jersey The Pinelands are pretty? A guest post by Maria Ede-Weaving… The year is releasing itself, letting go with the kind of intense beauty that never fails to inspire awe in me. There was a time I used to dread this season, sensing the darkness closing in; the […]

Photograph of a Whitesbog that was home to Elizabeth White and the birth place for the modern Blueberry, so the place has a lot of history. I love the place and always find some interesting things to photograph.

From Out the Cave as I explore more landscapes in the Pinelands of NJ. When you have been at war with yourself for so many years that you have forgotten why, when you have been driving for hours and only gradually begin to realize that you have lost the way, when you have cut hastily […]

Brendan T. Byrne State Forest, Formerly known as Lebanon State Forest, visitors are greeted by the fresh scent of pines. Today’s forested acres are a strong contrast to the barren, cleared land that existed in the 1800s.

I got stopped by a large falling tree, I guess I’ll have to hike in the next time, because for sunsets I think this is a better […]

 When looking for photo opts in bad light there is all ways the shadows, which where I found this unusual gate, not sure what purpose the cable served.  I’m not sure what happened here, maybe lost his shoe, or an alien vaporized this poor soul as he walked through the pinelands. This image probably belonged […]
