  • Original sites/default/files -- not cropped or otherwise modified
  • Landscape orientation (wider than high)
  • Photos should be taken from trails and parks in the New York-New Jersey area (visit our hikes and parks pages for locations)
  • Images without identifiable people -- or with no people at all -- are preferred
  • Photos that are well-composed (focus subject in the middle of the picture) 
  • lakes
  • streams
  • bridges, lean-tos, other structures
  • open views (no long green tunnels, well maybe with laurel in full bloom)
  • unique geologic or other features
Please include:
  • Location, including park and trail names (latitude/longitude is nice if known)
  • Date the photo was taken
  • Photo credit
