The Roving Photographer

Late summer variety, part 1

A sampling of critters from a couple of different mornings lately, starting with my old friends, the Cedar Waxwings. These are some of my favorite birds, thanks to their perfect combination of good looks, personality, and general lack of fear of photographers. They’re also a late summer bird, at least here in NEPA, and their […]


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 – on the hunt

  Okay, so maybe it’s a bit of a butt shot, but it was too visually interesting for me to toss it.  And in my defense, you can see this heron’s face, so that’s something.  But what mainly attracts me are two things:  first, the intensity of the pose.  This guy didn’t care that I […]


Killdeer at Prompton

  Found this guy up at Prompton Lake last week during a sunset paddle.  I drove up in hopes that the cloud-studded sky would last through sunset and produce some great drama over the lake.  That was a flop – the clouds all evaporated just before sunset.  But as I was launching the kayak I […]


Simple Clicks – Prompton sunset

Another evening spent on the water and I’m the better for it.  Aside from coming home refreshed, with a good workout and clear mind, I came home with some great photos as well, including some nice plover action that I’ll share soon.  The second half of my paddle was just a paddle, no wildlife, but […]


Frances Walter Dam

Headed out to the Frances Walter Dam one evening a few weeks back with the idea that I’d be on the water through sunset and could grab some really great shots.  The geology around the dam is unique in this area, a lot of rocky bluffs and boulders, a much more rugged appearance than the […]


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, […]


Simple Clicks – Lackawanna morning

A morning outing at Lackawanna State Park in mid-June; it was a chance to put the kayak in the water and I didn’t have high expectations for what I might see.  But it turned out to be a productive trip.  The wildlife cooperated; herons let me approach, a Willow Flycatcher returned to the same branch […]


Simple Clicks – foggy morning

A few from last autumn, almost a year old now.  I had the kayak out on Lake Lackawanna during a thick morning fog and couldn’t help but be mesmerized by the drifting tendrils and the way the color began to break through.

Bad weather, baby

I’m stealing lines from songs again – this time Sonny Landreth’s “Bad Weather” – but it’s fitting for this set of photos, which was indeed shot during what most people would call bad weather (but which photographers call opportunity). On this particular day, mid-September, a series of storms were moving down from the northwest through […]
