Raymondskill Falls

This last weekend, my wife and I ended up hiking to numerous falls around the Delaware Water Gap.  We had a great time, and I got to play with my new Cokin neutral density filters.  While I’m not quite done sorting all the images, this one stood out as one of my favorites.

It’s times like this that I’m glad we live on the top of a hill. However, as we neared the bottom of the road leading up to our house, I looked over and saw that. While it may look like a nice river, it’s normally just a trickle of water. Further down this creek it was possible to see more erosion.
