Island Beach State Park, Early Morning

Yesterday, July 2nd, I crossed Barnegat Bay at sunrise to the boater’s access path on New Jersey’s “Island Beach State Park,” enjoying an early morning walk at the edge of the Atlantic.


The last two images display nicely under higher zoom.

As always, thanks for viewing, and comments are always welcome. M 🙂

 

 

Perspectives: The Lighthouse and the Osprey

Osprey Nest and Barnegat Lighthouse a few minutes before sunset last night, as seen from newly opened Berkeley Island Park on Barnegat Bay, New Jersey.

The Ospreys in this unusually tall nest are about a mile away (1.6km); while the lighthouse is about seven miles (12.5 km) further.
