Jersey Autumntide ...


"Autumn burned brightly, a running flame through the mountains,

a torch flung to the trees."

                               ~ author Faith Baldwin

                                                     ~ 1893-1978

 

A beautiful pop of autumn color blazes brightly in the hilly terrain
of historic Phillipsburg, New Jersey overlooking The Northampton Street Bridge
as viewed from across the Delaware River in Easton, Pennsylvania
at a November sunset.

The Northampton Street Bridge - commonly called The Free Bridge - that spans
the states was completed in 1896 and survived massive flooding from
Hurricane Diane in 1955. It underwent a thorough restoration in 1990
and is one of my very favorite places to photograph.
