A few weeks back I shared some photos from a sunset paddle around the north end of Prompton Lake. This photo is from that outing and was a surprising capture of a Solitary Sandpiper hunting on the mud flats at twilight.
Just a few final shots from my first visit to Big Pocono State Park that didn’t make the last post, mainly because two of them are in black & white which just didn’t go with the rest of the batch. Why b&w in such a random way? I don’t know – sometimes I look at […]
These have been sitting around in my “to share” folder for a while now and I’m not sure why. I guess they’re left-overs that didn’t really go with another post at the time, but which I still liked enough to want to share. So in lieu of a better idea, I’m going to throw […]
One last shot from my Saturday morning outing, processing with a Velvia film emulation like the others from that morning but again, rather toned-down from the defaults. It’s a good perspective, out over the water, and I was drawn to not only the reflections, but that little accent of fog way down the lake. It’s […]
I’ve got no idea what these are. They appeared in shallower sections of Tobyhanna Lake, amid mats of floating vegetation. The whole flower is very small and unlike any I’ve ever seen before. A quick Google image search as fruitless. All I really know for sure is that there weren’t many of them out there […]
And since we’re talking about the Eales Preserve today, I thought I’d wrap up with a few simple clicks from my visits there over the past month. The sunrise above, where I was struck by the warm tones lying close to the horizon. And the foggy view (after the break) across the pine barrens.
I made these a few minutes before the photos in the last post. I had walked out onto the bridge across Lackawanna Lake with the thought of shooting across the water, but that scene didn’t jump out at me. But I did see several thick patches of this pink flower pushing up by the sidewalk, […]
This past week was another hot one. I headed up to Lackawanna State Park on Tuesday evening, thinking that there might be some relief by the water, maybe a cool breeze. Wishful thinking – instead, the air was dense and swampy with humidity, so thick that you could see it in the sunbeams that cut […]
This was one of those mornings when the lake was so calm and clear that you could see right down to the bottom anywhere it was shallow enough for the light to reach. The lily pads were just getting started – it’s still May – and there were no blossoms yet, only a couple of […]
Mountain Laurel is a Pennsylvania standard – the Lehigh Valley is filled with it and the flower’s beauty and aroma have become part of the local spring landscape, not only in actuality but also in the local history. And for good reason – it’s simply lovely. This was my first close encounter with it. Another […]
