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 […]


Bees

I’ve long had a fascination for bees, the incredible, furry little insects that live in complex social structures, communicate through dances, and pollinate a vast number of the crops and flowers that we depend on.  And of course they make honey.  In fact, one of my long term goals is to someday do a photo […]


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 […]


Birding in July

July always signals the end of the true birding season for me.  Although it’s possible to continue observing birds, working with them, photographing them, their most vibrant season is over.  Mating has ended, most nests have fledged young, and by the end of the month some birds are already starting to molt into their autumn […]
