This beautiful oasis is just a short walk from my house and almost my backyard. This section of Rahway River Park located in Clark, New Jersey is referred to as Jackson Pond. It is part of the Rahway River and not a true pond. Many varieties of wildlife make this area their home. Glossy Ibis, wood ducks, Canada geese, hawks, many species of turtles, osprey, even bald eagles have made occasional visits here as well. I learned to use my very first digital at this beautiful place and its where I take most of my photos today.
