Lake Hopatcong

Lake Hopatcong is the largest freshwater body in the state of New Jersey, USA, approximately 4 square miles (10 km²) in area. The lake is located in the mountains of northern New Jersey, north of Netcong and along the border between Sussex and Morris counties.
We made an unplanned trip to this place today (24 Aug 08) and was wondering how we missed this place which is just 22 miles from our place for a whole 1 year! And as I mentioned, there was a lot of activities & since we were not prepared, we just fooled around for some time & returned.
It was a bright sunny day & I got this good shot of the white clouds on a bright sunny day with the backdrop of the lake.

The Bushkill falls

Tucked away 60 miles from Morristown NJ (where we currently stay) in the Delaware watergap is the Bushkill falls. A privately owned land with a sequence of waterfalls and trekking trails, it is a perfect chill out place for half a day. Though we had visited this place earlier last year, our friends Jeffrey & Nisha came over the last weekend from South Jersey to visit this place & we joined them. This time, I made sure that I had time to click away some photos.
This is the photo of the main falls taken from the wooden walk way across the falls. Shot using my Nikon D50 on a cloudy afternoon using the wooden rails as a stand (I did not carry the tripod fearing to carry it all along - if we decide to trek)
Aperture: f/22
Shutter: 1.6 sec

The Bridge

A drive through the old cities of Pennsylvania - and you will amazed by the remniscants of the age old technology & architecture. The First Continental Congress drew up and signed the Declaration of Independence in Philadelphia (The capital city of Pennsylvania), but when that city was captured by the British, the Continental Congress escaped westward, meeting at the Lancaster courthouse and then to York. There they drew up the Articles of Confederation that formed 13 independent colonies into a new nation. Later, the Constitution was written, and Philadelphia was once again chosen to be cradle to the newly found American Nation.

This photo was taken during one of those drives through Pennsylvania near the Poconos Mountains in the Delaware Water Gap. Cropped & touched up using Adobe Photoshop to remove the noise in the surroundings.

Aperture: f/7.1
Shutter: 1/200 sec

Light up the sky!

It had been some time now since I took out & dusted my camera and clicked a few pictures. This one is an old one from my collection that I clicked at the Madison fair in October 2007.
Sometimes I get into a lazy bubble where I dont feel interested in anything - mostly caused by heavy work load at office or some thing like that. It would be really difficult for me to break that shell and get active again... many a time, even after the work load goes down, I continue to be in the lazy mood...
This one was clicked using my Nikon D50, exposure 1/30th of a sec, Aperture f/4.5
I liked the pitch black background with the fireworks fore ground lighting up the sky!
