Capturing Aerial Images of Bucks County

I needed to get a bird’s eye view of landmarks and points of interest in Bucks County.

Captured by Instagrammer @ameliaqualtersThe Delaware Canal has been one of my favorite places to revisit time and time again. I go here pretty much on a weekly basis whether i'm riding my bike, jogging, or looking for the perfect photo opportunity. My favorite time to be on the towpath is during the evening when the sun is setting, and wildlife seems pretty active. From Grey Herons, to deer, to turtles and foxes, I've seen a lot! As you

Since it was awhile back I remember the pleasure of spending the day walking with my Mom who loves the opportunity to be outside but not much more about that day in particular. We are both walkers and so enjoy the beauty that is Bucks County and that day was perfect weather, company and guide."
