This first photo shows how a light covering of snow in northern-central NJ makes for an interesting landscape, as you will also see in the remainder of the photos:


Housing developments southeast of Princeton, NJ:




Trenton-Robbinsville airport, NJ:


Six Flags Great Adventure (looking east) in Jackson, NJ:


Housing development in Jackson, NJ:


The streets in this community near the Jersey Shore remain largely un-plowed, even three days after the Blizzard of 2010:


A marina inundated with snow and locked in ice:


One of the many fine restaurants near the Jersey Shore looking so desolate with a lack of watercraft that populate the area in the warmer months:


The Jersey Shore (over Point Pleasant & looking south):


An ice-covered Barnegat Bay, albeit only a thin, broken layer of ice over much of it:


These next two photos were shot over the Barnegat Bay near Mantaloking, NJ (looking east):



A vast housing development just south of Toms River, NJ, with many streets plowed very poorly:


Housing development near Willingboro, NJ:


And just to test the 20x zoom on my camera, Willingboro's water tower, shot from an altitude of just over 2,000 feet:


New Rodgers road/Reed street Bridge over the Delaware river in
Bristol, PA / Burlington, NJ:


Maple Beach area of Bristol, PA, along the Delaware river:


A clock tower poised high atop a factory near Bristol, PA:


A Levittown, PA housing development, with its perfectly aligned streets and equally spaced homes:


Don't ask me....I just though it looked interesting (near Levittown, PA):


Now back over Lambertvile, NJ, looking across the Delaware river at New Hope, PA:


Notice the reflection of the clouds on the still water of the Delaware:


This church in Stockton, NJ has a Metallic Steeple....Interesting:


The Delaware river winding its way through Bucks county, PA / Hunterdon county, NJ:


A vast, lightly snow-covered, Bucks county, PA landscape:


Van Sant airport in Erwinna, PA with its grass runway:


Trees, Trees and more Trees:


A country road winding through Bucks county, PA:


A landscape that caught my eye as offering much to examine and wonder just what each snow-covered area of this field represents:


Well, I hope you've enjoyed this LAST Flight of 2010....and a long one at that, offering lovely, snow-covered views that I really wanted to share with everyone.

I wish each and everyone of you a Happy & Healthy 2011 !!!

See you next year...

Each photo in this BLOG entry was shot within the state of New Jersey (Central NJ to be exact). I hope you enjoy the photos I have selected as they represent the beautiful state we live in and often times is overlooked as such:

Round Valley Reservoir in northern Hunterdon County:


Townhouse development in northern Somerset County:


These next (3) photos are of Lakehurst Naval Air Station....

Parachute drop circle:


Aircraft Launch Test Tracks:


Aircraft Launch Test Tracks and main Runway:


Holiday City senior housing development in Toms River:


Some quickly diminishing "Fall Foliage" near Bricktown:


A new water tower to soon replace the existing one located near Lakewood Airport (hence the red and white colors for visibility, though now a bit faded):


Former Parachute Drop Zone @ Lakewood airport:


Lakewood airport:


Magnificent color on these red leafed trees in this small nursery:


Again, incredible red and orange colors in these next (2) photos:



Housing developments near Hightstown in these next (2) photos:



Looks either like a new Corporation or a massive Hotel at the intersection of Route 1 and Scudders Mill road near Princeton:


This next photo shows what happens when a civil engineer flunks out of college and then tries to layout a building complex (ouch)...This should have "Ripleys" museum painted all over it, since many of their buildings are fashioned in this manner.

I can imagine the owner's first visit to the completed complex saying "What Happened" ???


Princeton University Chapel:


A stand of pines amidst deciduous trees that are looking comparatively bare:


Looks like this stand of trees is on "Fire" amidst its neighbors:


And finally, a hot air balloon drifted by after our final landing of the day:


I hope you enjoyed the flight....

See you soon !!!
