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 […]


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 […]


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 […]


Sunrise on a mountain

  There are precious few mountains in Pennsylvania – a statement that depends entirely on perspective and will probably be declared untrue by (at least) the locals.  But from where I’m standing, it’s true.  PA just isn’t mountain country, even the very lovely Endless Mountains which are really more like rolling hills.  But we do […]


Simple Clicks – Boulder Field

While Pennsylvania may lack the more visible features of an astonishing landscape – mountains, for one – that doesn’t mean that it suffers from a dearth of fascinating elements.  They’re just a bit more subtle, or a bit more hidden, but still plenty impressive.  Take the Boulder Field, for example.  A glacial remnant from about […]


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 […]


Hickory Run State Park

We’re stepping back over a month here to my visit to Hickory Run State Park, a place I’ve only been once before and even now have hardly begun to explore.  Located near White Haven, PA, it’s a bit beyond my usual range but during early August I decided that I needed to get out and […]


Simple Clicks – a few more from Big Pocono

Just a few final shots from my first visit to Big Pocono State Park that didn’t make the last post, mainly because two of them are in black & white which just didn’t go with the rest of the batch.  Why b&w in such a random way?  I don’t know – sometimes I look at […]


Big Pocono

With summer waning and my free time with it, I’ve been making more of an effort these past weeks to get out and do things.  Back in April I made a list of things I wanted to do this summer – actually it was an extension of the list I made after New Year’s.  And […]


Simple Clicks – Misc Summer

  These have been sitting around in my “to share” folder for a while now and I’m not sure why.  I guess they’re left-overs that didn’t really go with another post at the time, but which I still liked enough to want to share.  So in lieu of a better idea, I’m going to throw […]
