Reflections & Patterns at Double Trouble

My previous post gave some general information on Double Trouble State Park in New Jersey. Here's a few of the more "artistic" shots I got at Double Trouble.

The surface water in the Pinelands is usually a dark, clear, brown due to staining from the tannin in the pine needles on the ground. It is usually very pure water, but it has an odd color. The dark water is excellent for capturing reflections, like the one above.

It looked like the park was planning on adding new sign posts to its trail system. These were lined up along one side of a maintenance shed.

The bogs were also partially frozen. I liked how the ice broke up the reflection of the pines on the water's side.

This is a close-up. Flowing water was welling up between gaps in the thin ice, as the wind pushed small waves toward the frozen end of the bog.
