The Roving Photographer

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 […]


An Evening on Prompton Lake

It’s been a while between posts lately. The usual excuses all apply: things have gotten busy and I simply haven’t had the time or energy to get out with the camera and roam as much as I’d like. And sadly, I haven’t even had the motivation to finish up several batches of files that are […]


Simple Clicks – Panorama on the lake

One last shot from my Saturday morning outing, processing with a Velvia film emulation like the others from that morning but again, rather toned-down from the defaults.  It’s a good perspective, out over the water, and I was drawn to not only the reflections, but that little accent of fog way down the lake.  It’s […]


A partial skunking

This was the view I was treated to Saturday morning, for about ten minutes.  Of which eight were spent driving down the highway on my way to the park.  My morning plans had called for a sunrise outing, which didn’t work out quite as I’d hoped.  The conditions were right – some clouds, some fog […]


Sunrise Fog

In my previous post I shared a series of very colorful sunrise images and called it,very unimaginatively, Sunrise Color.  Well this is the sister post, with the outtakes from that morning that just didn’t go well enough with the others for me to include them there, despite the fact that I really liked them (I outright […]


Sunrise Color

So here’s this past Monday morning up at Bullhead Bay, shivering in shorts and a light jacket that weren’t the smartest choice while fog curled around my ankles.  I shoot here a lot, the shoreline and especially the dock being perennial favorites of mine.  If I keep working a location enough, I figure that I’ll […]


A perfect summer day

This is what a perfect summer day looks like.  Just in case anyone is wondering and hasn’t seen one for themselves.  This was a couple of weeks back, on a morning outing to Tobyhanna State Park with the kayak, on one of those mornings where all the variables come together flawlessly.  Sunshine, a sky filled […]


Simple Clicks – mystery flower

I’ve got no idea what these are.  They appeared in shallower sections of Tobyhanna Lake, amid mats of floating vegetation.  The whole flower is very small and unlike any I’ve ever seen before.  A quick Google image search as fruitless.  All I really know for sure is that there weren’t many of them out there […]


Simple Clicks – another week of heat

This past week was another hot one.  I headed up to Lackawanna State Park on Tuesday evening, thinking that there might be some relief by the water, maybe a cool breeze.  Wishful thinking – instead, the air was dense and swampy with humidity, so thick that you could see it in the sunbeams that cut […]


Dog Days of Summer

It’s 93* outside, which means that I start sweating as soon as I look out the window. The air outside is sticky and saturated 24-hours a day; even the nights don’t cool down and the breeze, if you can find it, is just hot, sticky air in motion. These are the dog days of summer. […]
