Pike County Pennsylvania has a rich history with the Delaware River and hosts some of the most pristine land in the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area.
This access area is a great spot for fishing but the primary purpose is as a boat launch and picnic area. It's pretty, it's easy to get to, and it's easily accessible. It is also a really nice area to access the McDade Trail for a day hike.
Check for COVID-19 restrictions before you plan to visit and follow this park on Facebook to get daily COVID-19 closures: https://www.facebook.com/DelWaterGapNPS

I wander over, and under, a lot of small bridges. In part this is because I wander the Delaware River a lot and have a need to cross it rather often. It is also true that I simply enjoy the unobstructed views that bridges provide. In a land of thick forests, a treeless view is a wonderful photographic opportunity.
In a lot of photos, and how I prefer to photograph them, the image is more about the landscape and the bridge accentuates that. Then there are times when I am simply enjoying the immense structure and I run with that feeling to make the images more along the lines of architectural photography.
The above image is an old train bridge photographed while I was on the Zane Gray Bridge. Both are in in Lackawaxen Pennsylvania and span the Lackawaxen River. This area attracts a lot of photographers looking to photograph bald eagles so if you enjoy that Lackawaxen is a nice place to wander.
Below are all images from my Bridges collection on Fine Art America.
The first two are Delaware River bridges: Roebling Aqueduct Bridge (connecting Lackawaxen PA and Minisink NY) and the Milford Bridge (connecting Montague NJ and Milford PA).
Below is a mix of my favorite DSLR and cell iPhone images of local bridges.

American Rivers announces their 2020 River of the Year and one of my favorite photographic subjects - the Lovely Delaware River - wins it!
How amazing is that!??!
From their website: American Rivers is a national organization that was founded in 1973 and is dedicated the protection of rivers. Here is what the American Rivers CEO had to say:
“The Delaware River is a national success story,” said Bob Irvin, President and CEO of American Rivers. “The River of the Year honor recognizes the hard work of many local advocates who understand that a healthy Delaware River is vital to the health of millions of people.” - https://www.americanrivers.org/2020/04/river-of-the-year-for-2020-the-delaware-river/
Some fun facts: The Delaware River is the East Coast’s longest free-flowing river and part of the National Wild and Scenic Rivers System which preserves certain rivers with outstanding natural, cultural, and recreational values in a free-flowing condition for the enjoyment of present and future generations. I'm glad for that designation and for the two national parks that I have in my area: Delaware Water Gap and Upper Delaware Scenic
I've spent a lot of years exploring this river system and photographing both the landscapes around the river with the bridges that run over it. Check out some of panoramic photos here:
More recently I've gotten interested in the underwater world of this river and started shooting more underwater photography. Check out my blog posts on that Underwater Photography here:
I had intended on doing some SCUBA classes this spring to improve my underwater photography work but the classes were canceled due to COVID-19 so that will be delayed a bit. The summer of 2020 will likely still be more shallow underwater photography, however, I have quite a bit of new gear so it'll be new and creative work!
One thing I've admired, but not photographed much, is the abundant wildlife that has been repopulating the river basin. The bald eagles have made a tremendous return and beavers - like the one in the image below - are making their homes along the banks again.
I pulled this image out of my gift shop because it is a great example of the results of the work that has been done to restore this river. The image also speaks to the importance of the work and why we need to protect and conserve.
I thought maybe someone might enjoy it as much as I do :)

Creating abstract photos is something I enjoy quite a bit. One method that I like to use is to use my macro lens and play with mixing oils with water.
The soft and subtle natural oil hues create very simple monotone images.
More colorful abstract art is created using: colored lights, food coloring, or using patterns in a way that they get reflected on the oils. You never really know what is going to happen and the same thing never happens twice which is something I enjoy immensely about this technique.
Natural and artificial lighting can really play some fun games bouncing off the oils. I find it helpful to not play by any rules when creating abstract designs so it is one of those elements of photography that I just enjoy.
If you like these fun abstract images, shop my Abstract Art Collection at my Gift Shop!
Exploring photography has been a life long passion.
