After my haircut this morning, and despite my severe allergies, I drove just over the Princeton Township border to a spot along the Delaware and Raritan Canal. I had never been here before but I drive past it often whether on my way to work or out to Route 1. Sometimes I see cars parked here and sometimes people carrying canoes.

I grabbed my Nikon, tripod and my Hoya ND400Kingston Branch Loop Trail %name neutral density filter and followed the beaten path to the water. It was peaceful. The air was clean and crisp. I enjoyed the silence while it lasted. Through the trees I could hear the chatter of people talking while walking or bicycling along on the other side of the canal.

I could see that a path was carved along the canal by other humans out exploring like I was. I walked a few hundred yards, setup my tripod at the very edge of the water and took a few images.

I tried using the TriggerTrap software with the Hoya ND400Kingston Branch Loop Trail %name to do some long exposure HDR photography but I could not get the software to work correct. The TriggerTrap capture all the images at the same shutter speed. I used the auto-bracketing mode on my camera instead.

I walked down a few more yards and spent some more time watching the turtles basking on logs in the early morning sun.
