Amazing photos of great blue herons, butterflies, ospreys and other wildlife by photographer Douglas Goodell are featured at the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission’s Flyway Gallery through March.
The free exhibit, “Portraits of Nature,” runs through Friday, March 26.
A Ridgewood resident, Goodell is the co-author of “Jungle of the Maya” (a coffee-table book about the Central American rainforest) and “Duck Enough to Fly” (a photography-driven children's book).
Goodell also was a major contributor to “In the Presence of Nature” (a coffee-table book about a nearby natural area). He is currently working on a book about photography in Costa Rica.
Goodell’s prints have been exhibited in numerous venues throughout the country and hang in private and corporate collections. His work can be viewed at his Web site, www.goodellphotoart.com.
The Flyway Gallery is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
The gallery is located at the Meadowlands Environment Center in Lyndhurst, within DeKorte Park, the home of the NJMC.
The park encompasses one-square mile of wetlands, nature trails and water views – framed by the New York City skyline – and is a great place for bird watching and enjoying nature in general.
Directions to DeKorte Park are available in the left-hand column of this blog, or by calling (201) 460-8300.
