9:00am - 2:00pm
Meet at Stokes State Forest and spend the day exploring Stokes State Forest and the Delaware Water Gap Area. You will capture the trees, ferns, cascades and natural light while learning composition and exposure in one of New Jersey's natural wonders. This creative exploration is designed for those photographers with basic digital skills who want to develop their creative skills.
The air becomes noticeably chillier when you enter Tillman's Ravine, with its cool evergreen forest of eastern hemlocks, mountain laurel and ferns along side the steep slopes carved by the rushing waters of Tillman's Brook. Explore the eastern hemlocks and ferns clinging to rock crevices, a 10 foot cascade, and rushing water over the red rocks of the Kittatinny Ridge all through your camera lens.
If time permits we will head up the road two miles to Buttermilk falls, a 80-90 foot cascade. This spectacular waterfall is the only waterfall in New Jersey, apart from Great falls, with a developed viewing area.
We encourage carpooling to this location from the Jersey Shore.
