Sunset in New Brunswick, NJ

sunset on Route One New Brunswick, New Jersey
I took this shot of sunset by Route 1 in New Brunswick, New Jersey almost one month ago, and today I am finally putting it up on my blog. This scene is right next to the Route 1 bridge that I painted in a watercolor last week.

sunset over the Raritan River
By the time my daughter and I got to Boyd Park in New Brunswick, which is right next to the Raritan River, sunset was almost all gone. Only a bit of light was left in the sky. In the distance you can see the bridge (see those little lights?) that connects New Brunswick and Highland Park. I would love to return to Boyd Park at some point with my camera and my daughter, especially to see more sunset in New Brunswick NJ. There is a little stage and modern amphitheater there that does not look like it gets a lot of use. It would be fun to have my daughter act or dance on the stage at some point when there is a bit more light (and a lot less heat and humidity).

Beautiful photography!

Jewaicious says

What lovely tones and light, and beautiful captures of the sunset. I like the reflections of the sky in the water.

Laura says

Beautiful! I love both photos, but the second one is spectacular (the composition, the colors, the mood).

Hannah says

I also prefer the second photo even if both shots are great.

Leora says

Funny - I had a preference for the first, because it is a crisper shot. The second has a blur because it was already quite dark out.

Jim says

Good sunset shots.

Rambling Woods says

beautiful Leora...

DelGal says

Very nice photos. Hopefully next time you can catch the light before it "runs away." Not sure you'll have much luck with less heat and humidity, but we can all wish for a bit of relief :)

Rajesh says

Very grand sunset shots.

Virginia DeBerry says

It is a beautiful shot. The amphitheater in Boyd Park will be getting use starting later this summer, when the Hub City Sounds music series launches. We (New Brunswick Jazz Project) will be presenting jazz artists Winard Harper & Grammy Winner, Arturo O'Farrill for the first event on Saturday August 11 4-7PM. FREE More info:

Thanks so much for telling us about the jazz concert. I won't be able to come to the concert, but I do hope to make it back to Boyd Park with my camera.

Carver says

That's quite a show the sky put on for you. Beautiful!
