Saturday 2 April 2022

It was a beautiful Spring afternoon. Bhavna and I went for a walk on the Millstone Borough (Somerset County) section of the D&R Canal State Park. We enjoyed the walk, and I had the opportunity to use my MCEX-16 extension tube. I saw no flowers except for the Spring Beauty.

I still have no Mac with which to edit my images. These are straight out of camera (SOOC) JPEGs created using the Nostalgic Negative Film simulation recipe. I used the wireless transfer feature of my Fuji X-T3 to get them onto my iPad Pro. I uploaded and posted them using the WordPress app.

UPDATED 2022-04-22: My Mac Studio arrived and I have updated the SOOC images with cropped versions. No other editing was performed.

  1. The photos of the path along the canal reminds me so much of the canal towpath in the C&O Canal National Historical Park in Maryland (US), which is home to the old canal along the Potomac River. It makes for a great location for walking, as it appears is the case with D&R Canal State Park. That coiled snake is a nice find. Over here it would be a garter snake but I've no clue what species are typical where you are.

    1. I’m embarrassingly ignorant of the fauna in this area. My photography tends to focus on the flora, but I’m ignorant there. ?

      The D&R Canal Trail runs 124 km from New Brunswick to Trenton but the C&O Canal is much longer. I’ve walked many sections of the canal trail over the last 20 years, but this is the first time seeing a snake. It was an exciting find.
