The meandering canal

The 1830s Delaware-Raritan Canal (shown previously) and towpath meanders lazily through Princeton and beyond. Here, it passes through lovely, neighboring Lambertville (20-30 minutes drive away).

'Meanders' is the perfect description, a very relaxed and lazy looking scene!

Great picture. I'd love a stroll along the canal with a stop on the bridge just to enjoy the scenery.

What a serene photograph. Was it raining? I wanted to thank you for sharing your story on my blog photo adventure yesterday. I am so glad that your brother is okay.

A wonderful peaceful scene. I like the cattle and surrounding area in the previous post too. MB

Lovely!

Our canal dates back to the same era, though it's wider.

This canal is gorgeous and so peaceful! I like the reflection of sky and the trees in the water. They are beautiful!

We don't have here the canals. I wish we would.

A very beautiful picture!

So serene, lush and verdant. Looks like very few leaves are beginning to turn, ever so slowly, taking their cue from the canal :)

how much might it cost to live here, i wonder?!

Jack said...

This is very pretty. I can't believe that I have never been to Princeton. I can't even describe whether it is suburban or rural. More for you to show us!

Having your brother in the WTC must have been nerve wracking. So glad that it had a good end for your family.

Thanks everyone! Hamilton - I don't know actual figures but it is more affordable to live in neighboring communities (like Lambertville) than in Princeton - Lambertville is a bit of an artists' enclave, because it is more budget-friendly, pretty, yet still close to Princeton:) Jack - Princeton is an odd mixture of both, some parts are quite suburban but other parts are very rural (hunters walking about forests with crossbows!). Thank you for the kind words re: 9/11.

Lovely spot and wonderful reflections. Great shot!

Something so appealing about a canal, charming photograph.

I love this shot! It's right next to the Lambertville Station right?

LONDONLULU said...

James - you've a good eye! It is indeed the very spot:)
