A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to have a actual full day off. No flowers, No editing, just photographing for the sake of photographing. Let me tell you, I love what I do, but sometimes it is nice to set out and photograph what you see, not what you need to capture.
Anyway, my husband and I took this time to go to explore. First, we went to the Port Jervis/Pennsylvania border to see Hawks Nest (a famous car commercial place). AJ has been telling me about this road for months and going there, it was everything he described and more. Nestled right next to the Delaware River, this road is stunning with all its twists and bends. While it was not exactly the safest place to stop for a photo-shoot, it well worth the danger. But before we could even find a spot to pull over we went all the way down the mountain and stopped roadside for some pictures along the river where we straddled the NY and PA border. While the weather wasn’t what I would call ideal (very cold, windy, a little rain), I was happy to spend the day with my camera and my husband.
Afterwards, we headed to Vernon, NJ were we went to a patch of the Appalachian Trail called Pochuck Boardwalk. It was stunning, the sky opened up and the sun shined down on the boardwalk. It was brisk but beautiful as the sun set down across the mountains. There is nothing more beautiful than watching the light change as day turns to night.
Overall, it was the perfect day off and I walked away happy, relaxed, and with several amazing shots. Check out some of my favorites below:
