Simple Clicks – Lackawanna Lake at dawn

  I’m standing along the shore at the fishing area at the north end of Lackawanna Lake, facing west with the marsh, and the South Branch of Tunkhannock Creek, just behind me.  It is dawn and it is frigging cold, much colder than I expected, much colder than I had dressed for.  When I left […]


Simple Clicks – goldenrod at sunrise

  Goldenrod at sunrise, intensely back-lit and glowing.  It’s one of those shots I just couldn’t resist taking, even if it is a little un-grounded in a compositional sense. I don’t know about where you live, but here in PA – and in NY and VT – goldenrod is prolific through the end of summer […]


Simple Clicks – maple leaves

  You know what’s funny?  I grew up in Vermont and never once tapped maple trees to make syrup.  I had a friend up the street who did it, and we took elementary school field trips to see how sugaring was done.  My mother and I even talked about doing it once or twice, as […]


Simple Clicks – dock at Bullhead Bay

  By now the dock has probably been pulled out of the water, too many cold nights and cool days upon us now, and the threat of ice is starting to become real – or will be in another couple of weeks, at least.  But in the meantime, it’s unlikely that too many people are […]


Simple Clicks – Great Egret

  For the past several weeks, Lackawanna State Park has been host to a lone Great Egret.  A large bird that’s somewhat like an all-white Great Blue Heron, they are neither natives of this area, nor frequent visitors.  In fact, the range maps for their species show PA as a migratory area, although both their […]


Simple Clicks – Orions Belt

  Just a simple click today, as I’m hard at work supporting Mandy by providing photo coverage of NEPA BlogCon 2014.  (And for the first time ever, making a post from my phone.) Shoot this photo the morning I was headed to Salt Springs. I stepped outside my grandparents house and saw the sky and […]


Simple Clicks – Autumn shoreline

View from the kayak a couple of weekends back, looking north up Lackawanna Lake towards Bullhead Bay.  The shoreline colors were just starting and are farther along now. I’ve always loved that high field in the distance, with the few solitary trees.  But I think my favorite part of this photo are those wispy, ethereal, […]


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 […]


Simple Clicks – Green Heron

Got a good close encounter with a Green Heron a few weeks back, via kayak, of course.  This one may be young, or just brave, but he didn’t mind as I paddled by him in the marshy outflow to Kennedy Creek.  I was able to let the kayak drift in close, to the point where […]


Simple Clicks – South shore dock

  Just a simple image of the dock on the southeast shore at Lackawanna State Park.  I was out paddling one evening in early August, not really intending to do any photography, but I’d brought the camera along just in case and it’s a good thing, as this scene appeared and I knew I wanted […]
