Anything particularly special to shoot there?

Also going to Alexandria PA for a wedding. Any tips for the area(s) are appreciated.

It's a nice lake, not really much scenery wise if I remember correctly. I got a ticket there many years ago for fishing without a licence and had to pay it on the spot or get arrested.

Don't remember a lot there but there's plenty up and down the Delaware around it. Bridges in Frenchtown, Milford and Reigelsville. Roaring Rocks park nearby is kinda cool - huge deposit of stones that ring when hit with a hammer. Nice waterfall there that's likely dry as a bone given the lack of rain in these parts.

I live close by. It's a great spot for a picnic and a little hiking or trail walking. There are some nice spots for pictures. Lot's of nature and woodsy areas, rocky terrain and such. There's a marina with lots of boats out on the lake. There's a dam with falling water at the southeasterly end of the lake. The weather is great and there are great sunsets right now.

Flickr search reveals it all...

Thanks folks! That's very helpful. We'll only be there for a few hours...too bad, the night shots look cool!

Looks like we'll be mostly just hiking, no tripod necessary, and maybe I'll just carry the 10-24mm and a 60mm macro.

Ok, plans changed. I can go anywhere between Doylestown PA and State College, PA. I might go to Rickett's Glen, it adds about an 90 minutes to my drive. But I'm also looking at other opportunities. Not trying to get you to do research for me, but if you know something special along the way that's scenic, and fun...
