Hike along Skit Branch

Continuing my search in the Pinelands for interesting flora to create some fine art work.

The Pine Barrens, also known as the Pinelands or simply the Pines, is a heavily forested area of coastal plain stretching across more than seven counties of New Jersey. The name “pine barrens” refers to the area’s sandy, acidic, nutrient-poor soil. Although European settlers could not cultivate their familiar crops there, the unique ecology of the Pine Barrens supports a diverse spectrum of plant life, including orchids and carnivorous plants. The area is also notable for its populations of rare pygmy pitch pines and other plant species that depend on the frequent fires of the Pine Barrens to reproduce. The sand that composes much of the area’s soil is referred to by the locals as sugar sand.

I’m testings a new theme and trying to get the bugs work out. Please bear with me.

This shot was taken at sunset at Chadsworth Lake in 2015 with my old Nikon gear, I have since switched to Olympus M4/3 for all the benefits that mirror less bring to digital photography.

Please leave comment, they are appreciated. Thanks Lou

Congress created the Pinelands National Reserve (PNR) through the passage of the National Parks and Recreation Act of 1978. The PNR is the first National Reserve in the nation.

The PNR is approximately 1.1 million acres and spans portions of seven counties and all or part of 56 municipalities.
