I have a Whopper of a Picture Post for all of you on this overcast day.
There was an approaching front from the west, but the air was relatively smooth and the rain held off until dark. (33) photos await your perusal of Springtime beauty, so I hope you enjoy this selection from central & northern New Jersey.

As always, I hope you enjoy the view from above !!!

The following (4) photos show various homes
and spring foliage in Bridgewater





The next (2) photos show the
MetLife corporation in Bridgewater

scattered throughout the Garden State (NJ)

passes the Jersey Ave Complex in
North Brunswick Township

#15 - A crowded New Jersey Turnpike

as the truck and car lanes merge.
The construction and widening of the
roadway doesn't help, either

#16 - One of many housing developments
scattered throughout the Garden State (NJ)

#17 - Black Bear Lake Day Camp in Millstone

The next (7) photos show Six Flags
Great Adventure in Jackson


#19 - To the left is the construction site of the
park's newest coaster, a Stand-Up called the
Green Lantern.  To the right is a snaking line
of park goers waiting for what I assume
is Season Pass processing since all the rides would
be closed around this time

#20 - An overall shot of the Green Lantern
Stand-Up coaster's construction progress,
due to open at the end of May 2011



#23 - One of the Bizarro coasters' trains
being "Toasted" by its giant Flame Throwers

#24 - A forgotten area of Great Adventure,
hopefully soon to be invigorated with
new life in the way of rides and/or coasters


#25 - New Jersey Astronomical Association
observatory in High Bridge, adjacent
to Vorhees State Park

#26 - A tower of unknown usage on the
Hunterdon County Educational Services
property in Califon

This next (5) photos feature the sprawling grounds of the
Benjamin Moore Manufacturing site in Flanders



#29 - Numerous panels of various colors,
all being tested and evaluated from
exposure to the sun and the elements


#31 - A new solar farm adjacent to the
Benjamin Moore facility, just across the
railroad tracks, in Flanders


#32 - New construction of horse stables,
I assume, near Long Valley

#33 - Would you look at that nearly 1 mile long
(I measured it on Google Maps) driveway...
What an entrance to come home to each day
near Long Valley


I hope you've enjoyed these photos as much as I have enjoyed shooting them. And I hope my next Highlight Update arrives sooner than this update did. The winter was long, cold, snowy and windy, but brighter, warmer and more soothing days are ahead of us now.

See you after the next flight...
