There are times when I see shots from other photographers of a location so magical that I must see it for myself. Only some of these locations are within reach and, even then, require a bit of extra effort from me. This is one of those spots, the Manasquan Reservoir near Howell, New Jersey. I can't remember exactly but I must have left home around 2:30 in the morning to be in place before sunrise. Cup of coffee, some good tunes on the car stereo, my love of road trips and I'm good to go - especially when there is a possibility of being treated to something like this. I know some of you will think this is a touch insane. There are times when I might be tempted to agree with you. Might.
But, if you had been there, on this particular morning, I think I could convince you otherwise.
