  2. Gee Craig I like these. I used to live not too far from the Delaware Water Gap (Long Valley, N.J.) and always thought this was a beautiful area. Thanks for the memories.
  3. Craig -

    Very nice shots! Gives a good feel for the rolling hills up there.

    Including the rowboat (I think that's what I'm seeing) gives a nice reference point to understand the size of the river there.

    Great shots what a beautiful area I used to spend my summer up near the Deleaware Water Gap area
  7. ahhhh summer! I remember what it was like :wink: Beautiful, love those colors.
  8. Here's Mt Tammany from the PA side of the river


    You have a great shot of the Gap from the top of Mt Tammany. It's within 5 miles of my house. Here's a shot I took from the parking lot along the river on the PA side of the river. I was looking up at the area where you took your shot.


    If you look at your shot, almost in the exact center, you can see a break in the trees. That is a small canyon called Slatford Creek. I was hiking along the creek this last Sunday and got this shot of a small frozen water fall.

    If you are looking for some neat places around the gap to shoot, drop me an email and I be happy to share them with you.

    Nicely captured images. That 12mm sure is handy. I like them both.

    Beautiful shots of a beautiful area. I'll have to add this to my long, long list of Must See areas.
