Near the End of Bulls Island (Weekend Reflections # 76)

Stockton, New Jersey (Bulls Island State Park)

The weather was beautiful last Saturday so Vicki and I decided to take a drive along the Delaware River. The Delaware River divides New Jersey and Pennsylvania so we made stops back and forth between the two states. That's Vicki in front of me enjoying the scenery. New Jersey is on the left and Pennsylvania is on the right. It was a nice snow covered walk to get to this spot and once again we had it all to ourselves.

Now lets have some fun with Weekend Reflections!

Beautiful, James!

Johnny Nutcase said...

Cool shot, James. Looks like maybe it's warming up a little bit, but I see the ice on the right side!

Pretty nice! Happy Weekend!

Woody said...

I've been to Bulls Island, but never this part, I need to visit again and take in this view!

Carletta said...

Wow, even in it's dormant like state it's beautiful!

James, Beautiful blue! I love this. Interesting, on the left water is still and mirrors the scenary, but on the right there are ripples.
Have a great weekend!

Gine said...

Que de bleu ! En association avec la veste rose, c'est parfait !

what an artistic pov.
the sole pink amidst the blues.

awarewriter said...

Great shot James. Putting Vicki in the photo is the finishing touch. The textures of the trees, stones and the clouds are excellent and the reflections -- yes!

Malyss said...

It's not so usual to be pictured between two states!Funny idea, and great result! (Vicki seems sooooo young!!)

Cezar and Léia said...

Wow you guys are so lucky, this landscape is spectacular!
Wonderful shot James, the reflections are gorgeous and wow the blue intense in the sky is perfect!

Reader Wil said...

This is what I like: water and nature reflected in it! Actually I did the same!
Have a great weekend, James!

Sunny said...

Looks like a lovely place to walk and I like the difference in the water texture from one side to the other.
Enjoy your weekend!

P.S. I have to go on a 'reflection hunt', haha!

Such beauty and feeling is expressed in this photo.

jeannette said...

Beautiful James, and thanks for the interesting info too! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

I saved back a photo specially to join in with Weekend Reflections but, when I posted it, I realised it is not a reflection . . . at least, I don't think it is!

Really nice serene photo! The Stockton Inn is a great place too!

Sar@h said...

I like this picture, the dock is between two worlds : the calm reflection and the Restless. And the woman in pink like a stranger in this land … Which will she choose?

Mama Zen said...

Beautiful!

Definitely a wanderer's paradise enjoying Nature 's sights and sounds! Love that stone wall dividing two reflections!

Luis Gomez said...

Lovely! Very nice.

Lynette Killam said...

What a great spot James.

lotusleaf said...

A beautiful , peaceful place. I wish I could take a photo like that!

marina said...

great capture!

Stickup Artist said...

Great composition and colors! That is a very unusual footpath. I don't think I've ever seen anything quite like it. A great find.

Nature Rambles said...

Love the colour of the sky and the reflection.

Jan said...

James, this is such a beautiful shot. Very peaceful.

Matty said...

It looks like a great day out.

Dimple said...

I like the contrast of the smooth, reflective water on the left against the rougher water on the right, and the wonderful sky!

Gattina said...

Looks quiet cold, but the trees are reflecting so nicely in the blue water !

Lew said...

Nice shot along the river! Snow and cold certainly reduce the crowds (except at ski slopes!).

Carolyn Ford said...

This is a really nice place to spend some time! That little pier is so photogenic! You created a very nice composition, James! I LIKE it!

Leovi said...

Nice reflections, static and delicious shades to the left and moving water on the right. Greetings.

Halcyon said...

The reflections are nice, but my eye is drawn to that beautiful blue sky!

Happy weekend!!

RuneE said...

You certainly live in a country with a tall sky :-)
That reddish/pink jacket made for a perfect contrast.

Lois said...

This is such a wonderful picture James! I love the composition. What a nice day!

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Beautiful reflections as you stand on this "state divide." This is a wonderful spot regardless of the season and I can see why it is a favorite.

Bon weekend,
Genie

Elisa said...

Such a wonderful reflection and effect over that bridge
Have a nice weekend

Pat said...

Beautiful shot! A river is often the demarcation between states. Vicki appears to be standing in two states at the same time. The Colorado river is a boundary between CA and AZ, but you can't stand on both sides at the same time! Lovely reflections.

Hooked on Memes said...

Beautiful shot! The pier draws the viewer right into the scene. The pink is a great contrast.

imac said...

Love it James.

Inger-M said...

Gorgeous blue skies and reflections!

Owen said...

Looks like a gorgeous spot. And Vicki isn't likely to get mistaken for a deer there. So why's it called Bulls Island ?

Doreen said...

beautiful shot with a hint of mystery to it.

Lily Hydrangea said...

a beautiful late Winter scene.

Judy Sheldon-Walker said...

The colors and the clarity are outstanding.

Crafty Gardener said...

beautiful photo

forgetmenot said...

So pretty--such a clear reflection. Interesting to be standing between 2 states.

Y. Ikeda said...

Nice composition and I like her pink jacket:)

Cheryl said...

Very nice photo, looks like a peaceful place to visit. I like the walkway too.

Fabien said...

Superbe composition, bravo !
