Update to Franklin Parker Preserve 08-25-2022
I love Franklin Parker Preserve because of its great hiking trails. Hiking and taking pictures gives me great exercise and creates beautiful images, which connects me with nature.
In nature, nothing is perfect and everything is perfect. Trees can be contorted, bent in weird ways, and they’re still beautiful. –Alice Walker
Today, I flew the drone on this walk to get a higher perspective. I hope you enjoy my photographs.

New day at Franklin Parker Preserve, it was very windy so that ruled out aerial work. The wildlife consisted of some turtles and a couple of mallard ducks. I’m uploading these images and prints will be available on my gallery at https://luminous-art-gallery.com/shop/prints
Another day of photography at this expansive property, New Jersey Conservation Foundation’s largest, encompasses 15 square miles in the heart of the New Jersey Pine Barrens.
Franklin Parker Preserve is an 11,379 acre natural preserves located in the Pine Barrens in Chatsworth, New Jersey. The preserve links Brendan Byrne, Wharton, and Penn State Forests. Franklin Parker Preserve is owned and managed by New Jersey Conservation Foundation.

Reminds me of the local Pine Savannas here in coastal NC. We have large, shallow ponds called poccosins. The Lotus shot is outstanding. I also really like the first black and white as well as the color shot of the fern. They’re all good but those are my favorites.
