I will continue to explore the New Jersey Pinelands National Reserve heavily forested area of coastal plain stretching across more than seven counties of southern New Jersey of for fine art photography of both landscapes and plant life.
Wandering the Pine Lands aka Pine Barrens, I was called to this location again. I saw this river, I think it is the Shane Branch.
Within the Pine Barrens there are four major river systems. Each of these river systems drain an area of land known as watersheds. This includes stormwater runoff from natural areas as well as developed areas. Runoff from developed areas not only contains various contaminants, but results in higher than normal flows in streams and tributaries.
I love hiking and forest bathing in Franklin Parker Preserve. It is the road less traveled to quote some unknown author.
This shot was taken of the west branch of a branch of the Wading river in late afternoon.
This location is a great place to meditate because of the silence that can be found there.
Please leave comments they are much appreciated.

Here we go, I have been absent for the Pines because of tick bites and Lyme’s disease, but Dr Rawl got me back no fear. I love this image and it has a lot of my feelings connected to this place. I hope you enjoy this peace and quit place with me.
Bye for Now
