Spring In Princeton

The weather in New Jersey was perfect this weekend. Saturday was sunny and close to 80 degrees. Sunday was sunny, but cooler, about 65 degrees. It was a great opportunity to get out and explore the world after such a wretched winter. 


I took a nice walk along the D&R Canal with one of my friends who had spied a bald eagle earlier in the week. Sure enough, we spotted him/her in an aerie at least 100 feet in the air, but thanks to my 50x zoom lens, I was able to get a couple of great shots. 

Along the way, we also saw turtles basking in the warm sunshine.


Sunday morning, I decided to cruise by Princeton (Borough) Hall, where there is a large statue of George Washington. It's as big as day and with the cherry blossoms in bloom, looked really nice. Along with the statue is a stunning weeping willow (also in bloom). The last photo shows each in relation to the other. 

My final stop was, naturally, Prospect House. I needed to see if any flowers had bloomed and sure enough, there were some daffodils and tulips in fine form. The last photo is of a magnolia tree on the Prospect House grounds. 

All in all, a great weekend and a great way to start what I hope will be a full season's worth of amazing photography.
