Trostle Pond & thoughts on color and b&w

  Turns out I shot a lot of photos at Trostle Pond the other morning.  And I was going through them in post, I stumbled upon a situation where I couldn’t decide how I’d best like to see the final product.  For me it happens like this: an image comes up on the monitor and […]


Simple Clicks – dock at Bullhead Bay

  By now the dock has probably been pulled out of the water, too many cold nights and cool days upon us now, and the threat of ice is starting to become real – or will be in another couple of weeks, at least.  But in the meantime, it’s unlikely that too many people are […]


A Cold Morning at Trostle

I crawled out of bed last weekend before sunrise and drove up darkened roads to Trostle Pond, clutching my mug of coffee and uttering silent thanks that during this season at least, getting up for sunrise doesn’t involve an ungodly hour such as 4am. I had thought to bring gloves and a jacket, but even […]


Return to Salt Springs

Three weekends back, I stayed over at my grandparent’s home in Binghamton, New York, as my family came together in the old farm house for a sort of early-Thanksgiving dinner that we called Turkey Feast. Amid several wonderful home-cooked meals and catching up with relatives, I snuck away at sunrise Sunday morning and drove the […]


Simple Clicks – Autumn shoreline

View from the kayak a couple of weekends back, looking north up Lackawanna Lake towards Bullhead Bay.  The shoreline colors were just starting and are farther along now. I’ve always loved that high field in the distance, with the few solitary trees.  But I think my favorite part of this photo are those wispy, ethereal, […]


Simple Clicks – Mirror Morning

Mirrored-lake mornings like this are somewhat rare in my experience; the water only gets that intense glassy look now and then.  So I’m always pleased when I’m in a position to enjoy it.  These foggy morning won’t last too much longer now – autumn is nearing its peak and winter isn’t far behind…   Related […]


Colors of fog

Fords Pond a few weeks back, I was out on the water before sunrise and had the place to myself.  I’ve often said that sunrise is my favorite time of day, although truthfully it can be hard to get out of bed that early sometimes, and especially during mid-summer when it comes extra-early.  But on […]


Simple Clicks – foggy creek

South Branch of Tunkhannock Creek at sunrise this past week.  If you look closely, you’ll see that it’s there – those first signs of autumn.  The final waves of wildflowers, the slight turning of the grasses, the first tinge of color on the shoreline.  Summer is fleeting now.   Related Posts:Simple Clicks – Susquehanna EveningSimple […]


Simple Clicks – Water Gap at sunrise

One of the simple joys of being a photographer is getting to experience some truly beautiful things – generally without a lot of distractions.  In this case, it was getting to admire the Delaware Water Gap at sunrise from the top of Camelback Mountain.  I had to share the place with just one other person, […]


Simple Clicks – Paddling in Fog

  Here’s something I don’t think I’ve done before…a photo from my phone.  I’m well aware that cell-phone-ography is a (somewhat) legitimate thing now – and has been for some time.  But I don’t buy into it.  Call me old fashioned, but my personal feeling is still that just because my phone has a camera, […]
