Princeton Battle Monument with Fall Colors

Post by Bob Yankle » Mon Nov 06, 2017 3:57 pm

Bright colors, a venerable Revolutionary War Battle Monument, and bright, blue skies ....... a photographer's delight (at least this one's).

Wow, that's an amazing memorial! I'd like to see the middle detail even more, do you have any closer? S-

Delightful, Bob, well captured. We lived south of Princeton for almost two decades and found ourselves in P very often driving past this. Your version is better than what's there, at least as I recall it. It was dark and crowded with overgrowing trees. They must have trimmed.

A fellow I worked for had state housing in a home named Drumthwacket, an old, rambling, echoing cavern of a building that was as homey as an abandoned museum. But it was free.
