The Rock Brook was dry

I had no idea how little rainfall we had in New Jersey this summer until I took a trip out to Rock Brook in Skillman. I wanted to get some long-exposure images of the water I normally see flowing in the brook, but my wife wanted to pick up our produce from the Honey Brook CSA. I promised her we could get my photography done, stop in at 365 Grandview for the Montgomery Friends of Open Space sponsored "Hike for Kids", and still make it to the CSA. We headed out to Hollow Road with our daughter, who decided at the last moment to come along.

No long exposure photography at the Rock Brook on this occasion. The brook was dry and filled with leaves. But I love the colour of the leaves. I had left my Nikon in my car, but this was fortunate. I didn't get to do any long exposures, but I made good use of the available light offered by the day.

Normally, my daughter doesn't like posing for photos. Especially when I'm the photographer. But she seemed willing, yet not eager, to pose for a few photos on the rocks.
