A Hazy Shade of Winter (Speechless Sunday)

Controlled burning in the NJ Pinelands

Actually, it’s a sign of spring here in southern Ocean County, where the NJ Pinelands meet the Jersey Shore. 

The NJ Forest Fire Service is conducting controlled burns along Route 539, west of the Parkway in Little Egg Harbor.

The NJ Forest Fire Service sets the small fires to clear underbrush which could intensify wildfires.  New Jersey's spring wildfire season starts in March.   

The sky was Jersey Shore blue today, but not so on Route 539 in the Pinelands!

Controlled burns sure can prevent some major fires. Too bad it has taken so long for some people to realize that.

Laura, it seems like March is a little early for wildfires.  I wouldn't have thought that was much of a problem up your way...guess I need to get out more.

If you hadn't told us and just posted the photos I would have thought someone had started a forest fire.  I don't agree or disagree with a controlled burn what are your thoughts?

While that top photo has a special feel to it, I am really fond of the last photo with the trail coming in from the side, and the leaves of red on the trees.  It was composed a little differently than many photographers would have done.  I like it especially, because of it's unique perspective.

Laura - I understand the rational for the controlled burns but can't help but wonder what it does to the environment. We were in Florida Panhandle a while back and the smoke from the controlled burns created a haze in the sky over the Gulf of Mexico for days.
