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 […]


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 […]
