Saturday Light – the harpist at Trostle

Only a week after my cold morning visit to Trostle Pond, I was back on a Thursday evening for a portrait session with Chelsea, the lovely harpist I met during The Vintage’s “24 Hours of Art” event this past summer.  I did a series of portraits of artists participating at the event, and had mentioned […]


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 […]


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 […]


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 […]


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 […]


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 […]


Blueberries

“This morning I sat on top of a mountain just after sunrise and dined on low bush blueberries still fresh with dew.  There can be no great sign, no greater affirmation, that summer is here than that.  Surrounded by the chatter of bird song and the last fog clinging to the low areas of the […]


Not quite right

This image – and the others in this post – are almost two months old.  I shot them while out in the kayak, on a trip to Promised Land State Park.  Amid my usual search for birds, I made a point to shoot some landscapes with the intention of adding them to my “Black & […]


Beaver Pond

I was able to get a few new sites in during my time in Vermont; this was the first of them, Beaver Pond, near Pico Mountain.  As you can see, it’s not much of a pond – really just a wet meadow, cut by a pair of creeks.  That’s how it shows up in the […]
