Low Tide on the Delaware-Raritan Canal
by Norma Smiles (JerseyGirl) 
Sony A700
Bordentown, New Jersey
United States of America

Photographer Notes:
The Delaware-Raritan Canal was built between 1830 and 1834 mostly with hand tools and mostly by Irish immigrants. The canal's greatest use was in 1860 to 1870. While a great deal of the canal is restored and is now a state park, this is one of only two abandoned areas. It is located where the canal enters the Delaware River.

Interesting find Norma, and the history that goes with it, is equally interesting as well.

A nice shot along the Delaware, Norma, well framed & with neat reflections too. I really like the curve in the river. Thanks for your fascinating history to accompany this image. The canal has certainly been around for a while.
