USGS Water Station 01460440

It was snowing this morning when I left for work. Flurries. I left home earlier than usual with the intention of stopping along the way to snap some images. I considered bringing my Nikon but I decided I wanted to keep things simple and just shoot with my iPhone. I chose a route through Princeton and Mercer Street, toward Battle Field Park.

I saw a few scenes on Mercer Street that I wanted to capture. The Princeton Theological Seminary Library was lit with street lamps that gave it a warm wonderland feeling. There are a few colorful mansions with snow-covered trees that I wanted to capture.

But there was no easy way to just pull over on Mercer Street to snap a photo. It’s a busy road. Parking is on one side only. Near the residential part of the road. Residents had already occupied these spaces.

I continued my commute via Quaker Road.

This is the USGS Water Station 01460440 on the Delaware and Raritan Canal at Port Mercer in Lawrenceville, New Jersey. There is a parking area nearby, on the other side of the canal.

Last one for the Five Day Black and White Challenge which is using hashtag #fivedayblackandwhitechallenge on Google+.

After stopping to take a few shots near Princeton Battlefield Park, I stopped along the Delaware & Raritan Canal Park Trail near Port Mercer Canal House. I chose to capture with my iPhone 6 only.

I shot the image in black and white using the vividHDR app and then applied a Neutral Density preset in Color EFX Pro. Given that it was early morning the iPhone most likely shot this at ISO800 or higher, so I used Define for some noise reduction.

Along the Delaware and Raritan Canal near the border of West Windsor Township and Princeton, New Jersey. I was on my way to work and decided to stop for a quick photo. It was very cold and windy. Holding the camera steady was a challenge. I may return over the weekend and capture some images with my Nikon.
