Winter in B&W

And we’re back!  Although to start off this weekend, I’m stepping back to late February with some snow-filled photos, despite the fact that the snow is now (thankfully) gone from our landscape. This was one of those Saturday mornings when I simply couldn’t take being trapped indoors anymore, so set off to the park bundled […]


Views of winter

A last few photos from my winter hike, for which I arrived over prepared.  I set out with my Frog Tog waterproof pants on over my jeans, bundled up with my winter parka, thick socks in my old-style snow boots.  Within ten minutes two things were clear: there was a blazed, packed trail through the […]


Ice Fishing

Last weekend, when the temperature finally rose above zero – and above freezing – I trekked out to the park for my annual “go stand on the ice” event.  It’s something I do each winter and, to be honest, it’s probably a little silly.  After all, I kayak these same waters eight months out of […]


An ugly box

Got this in the mail the other day and liked it so much that I snapped a photo of it.  Yes, on my phone.  Fair warning (if you haven’t already guessed) that this isn’t going to be a photo post; we’re talking paddling for a moment. The Ugly Box, courtesy of Austin Kayak, is one […]


Ralph Stover State Park

These photos are over a year old.  Why?  I have no idea.  Mandy and I took a trip down to Doylestown, PA, in August 2013, just to get away for a weekend and explore.  We had a great time and I was very happy with the photos I made during the trip.  And yet I […]


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 […]
