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 […]


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 – 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 […]


Frances Slocum in B&W

Back in June I spent several hours hiking at Frances Slocum State Park, doing my best to stay in the cooler shade of the forest and enjoy the scenery.  It’s a park I don’t visit very often; it’s a bit of a pain to get there, although really rather lovely in many ways.  The U-shaped […]


Simple Clicks – Hickory Run in winter

A few from this past winter – early February to be exact.  I drove down to Hickory Run State Park with the idea that the various creeks, or “runs” as they’re called down there, would be particularly scenic amid the ice and snow.  I trudged through quite a bit of deep snow to reach these […]


Simple Clicks – Kennedy Creek trail

I hiked the Kennedy Creek trail at Lackawanna State Park this past spring, back in April.  It’s that time of year when spring is here, but it’s subtle – it isn’t showing its hand yet and, at first look at least, it’s more like winter without snow.  I’ve been shooting landscapes in black & white […]


Simple Clicks – morning at Fords

It had been a long time.  Months even, since the last photo-visit to Fords Pond.  It’s a simple site with fairly limited terrestrial access, but that doesn’t matter – it’s still one of my favorite places to shoot, even if I do tend to capture the same scene, the same tree, over and over again. […]


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 the Susquehanna

Kayaking season is drawing to a close, which means that summer and even autumn are almost gone.  They went by really fast this year and looking back I’m a little startled to realize that there’s a lot of things I never got around to, or at the very least, a lot of things I had […]
