Lots of people, thanks to television and movies, think New Jersey is an armpit and lacks any beauty. I beg to differ, but when all you see is the New Jersey Turnpike, I understand.
As I drove along a particular road it struck me how serene and tranquil the area was at that moment. I decided I had to try and get some photos.
