Delaware & Raritan Canal State Park / Rocky Hill

We ran out of coffee beans on Friday morning. Usually, the subscription from Drift Away Coffee would arrive just around this time, but for some reason is a bit late. Neither Bhavna nor I can start our day without a good cup of joe. When I woke up Saturday morning, the first thing on my mind was acquiring coffee. Buy the Cup in Rocky Hill is the only coffee shop in my area open before 7 AM on a Saturday. Every cup of coffee is $1, no matter what size - 12 oz, 16 oz or 20oz. It's a real bargain, and I have a choice of Rwanda, Columbia, Mexican, and a few flavoured coffees that I refuse to acknowledge. Flavoured coffee is just plain stupid.

I know the owner, Vitaliy, so every trip is a conversation. This morning we chatted for a few minutes about hacking wi-fi networks. The shop is a local hangout for the early morning residents who jog or work in the area.

I drove away from the shop, enjoying the colour display from the trees lining Washington Street. I circled back around headed toward home admiring the trees in the well-kept yards. I drove down to Rocky Hill section of the Canal State Park. I could see that the light was just coming over the top of the Trap Rock Quarry.

I pulled out my tripod and grabbed a few shots in Slow Shutter Cam on my iPhone 6 before my battery quit. I would have preferred to capture the scene on my Nikon, but I recently lost both my SD cards. Shit happens.

I applied the Fuji Astia 100F v.2 preset from the RNI Films iOS app.
