Sunset in the Dog Park

Last Sunday my daughter and I went to the dog park in Donaldson Park. She wanted to see the dogs, and I was happy to see the sunset. Donaldson Park is on the other side of Highland Park from where we live, and it is right next to the Raritan River. You can park right near the dog parks.

There is a dog park (a large caged in area) for little dogs and one for big dogs. There were a lot more big dogs. They romp around and play games with each other. My daughter was following the interactions carefully.

I enjoyed the oranges, reds, yellows of the sunset. The steeple you see is across the Raritan River in New Brunswick.

Teresa says

Your sunset shots are beautiful! It looks like the dogs appreciate a place to romp and play.

Helen Campbell says

Fun shots of the dogs at play. And that sunset is amazing! :)

Ilana-Davita says

Beautiful photos. Is this a place for dog owners to set their dogs free as it is forbidden elsewhere?

Leora says

Yes, elsewhere they have to be on a leash. One man said he has visited many of the central New Jersey dog parks with his dog. He recommended the Colonial Park dog park, so there's another place I can take my daughter for fun (and for free).

Gengen says

You capture the sunset good. Visiting from SOOC Sunday.

Robin from Israel says

Pretty sunsets. My sister and her family love their local dog park, they go all the time to let their dog run and play.

My photography is available for purchase - visit Around the Island Photography on etsy and Society6 and bring home something beautiful today!

The sunset is very beautiful and I also love the shots of the dogs.
