Simple Clicks – Birch

  I was in the field for a whole other reason, shooting landscapes at sunrise.  And then I saw this detail and forgot about the landscapes entirely.  There’s something photogenic about birch trees in general, but this one, captured half in the warm sunrise light and half in the shade of twilight, was irresistible.  So […]


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 […]


Simple Clicks – Hickory Run

      Around here, creeks are also known as “runs.”  It’s an old-timey word and appears on maps across the Poconos.  Hickory Run – the namesake of Hickory Run State Park – is a prime example; shaded, secluded, rhododendron-lined as it tumbles down the slopes.

Simple Clicks – Blackbird in flight

  A morning outing at Fords Pond with Paul; it was the first time we’d been out shooting together in several months and the planets weren’t quite aligning for anything great.  I was shooting the reeds backlit by the rising sun, the fog on the water, and happened to catch this female Red-winged Blackbird in […]


Simple Clicks – Sunrise

A pair leftover from last September, from an early morning when I was on my way to Lackawanna State Park with the kayak.  Coming over the hill towards Bullhead Bay, the sun was lighting both the clouds and fog and I couldn’t help but throw the flashers on and pull over.  I wandered up and […]


Simple Clicks – Lackawanna morning

A morning outing at Lackawanna State Park in mid-June; it was a chance to put the kayak in the water and I didn’t have high expectations for what I might see.  But it turned out to be a productive trip.  The wildlife cooperated; herons let me approach, a Willow Flycatcher returned to the same branch […]


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 – Eales Preserve

A male Eastern Towhee keeps a beady red eye on me as I hike along the Blueberry Trail in the Eales Preserve.  Perched in one of the taller scrub oak trees, he commands a view across the pine barrens and has no trouble identifying me as an interloper.  I don’t mind, as it’s good to […]


Simple Clicks – foggy morning

A few from last autumn, almost a year old now.  I had the kayak out on Lake Lackawanna during a thick morning fog and couldn’t help but be mesmerized by the drifting tendrils and the way the color began to break through.
