A truly remarkable place shrouded in strange, unsolved mysteries. I am lucky to have it as my photography playground I just started digging deep into it over the last few months. I figured I would share some of my work from the area, anyone in the tristate area should definitely take some time out and come visit!

Some pictures from this winter, which I hope is over!

This one of the Harrisville ruins actually made it onto a Pine Barrens website

Very cool stuff. I wasn't aware of this place. Do you have a link to a good site that has info on the mysteries associated with the Pine Barrens?

They talk about a lot of the stuff on there. The main town to visit is called Batsto Village. There is a lot of history there and the state runs it so you can do tours of the mansion and stuff. I was on trails yesterday for a few hours in my truck and didnt cross a single real road the whole time, and we would cross random train tracks, or see building foundations or whatever. A lot of the history really is forgotten! Harrisville is a great example of what happened with the once booming industry of the pines. Its this little town near Harrisville lake and down the Oswego river that was never kept up on and all the people just left one day and for over a hundred years its been left to just wither away.

Great shots! My wife has family in Manahawkin so I have driven through the barrens on many occasions. Definitely a unique place.

Great stuff! I read John McPhee's book about the Pine Barrens a number of years ago and it was a fascinating account.
