Wawayanda Lake State Park by peterkopher
Wawayanda Lake State Park

Wawayanda State Park embraces over 35,000 acres of forests and waters in the rough, hilly country of the New Jersey Highlands.  The name, pronounced Wa-wa-yanda, is the phonetic rendition of the Lenape name, said to mean "winding, winding water," or "water on the mountain." 

Wawayanda Lake, one of the focal points of the park, is 1.5 miles long, has 5.5 miles of wooded shoreline, and covers 255 acres.  It has both a popular beach/swimming area and boat launch.  Close by are the ruins of the Wawayanda Furnace, a charcoal blast furnace used to produce iron during the 1840s through the Civil War.  The Wawayanda Mine is 2.5 miles northeast of the iron furnace along the east side of Wawayanda Road  [near the New York State border] and consists of five openings or shafts.

Ursa Major by peterkopher
Ursa Major
The constellation Ursa Major contains the group of stars commonly called the Big Dipper. The handle of the Dipper is the Great Bear's tail and the Dipper's cup is the Bear's flank. The Big Dipper is not a constellation itself, but an asterism, which is a distinctive group of stars. Another famous asterism is the Little Dipper in the constellation Ursa Minor.

This image has, to me, more of an eastern aesthetic than I usually shoot.
