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 […]


Simple Clicks – Tarpon sunrise

Setting out from the Bullhead Bay launch one morning about a month ago, I couldn’t help but stop and grab a shot of my Tarpon sitting along the shore.  There’s only a few weeks left of kayak weather and I haven’t gotten out enough lately.  As much as I love autumn, it’s the precursor to […]


Simple Clicks – the Harford Fair

It’s that time of year again, or rather, it for the past month it has been: fair season.  And as tradition dictates, we visited the Harford Fair, my favorite fair in the entire world.  Unfortunately heavy rain kept us from going on rodeo night, so we drove up the following afternoon, a Saturday, to revel […]


Simple Clicks – Praying Mantis

  Found this guy on the shrubs in front of my home this past weekend, foraging for a meal (or so I assume).  Mantids are a new sort of critter for me; I never found one in Vermont, but since moving to Pennsylvania I’ve encountered them several times, both large and small.  This one was […]


Neckin’

  Neckin’ – no, not the kind we so enjoyed as teenagers. This little guy is a Green Heron, and a few posts back I talked about how they have necks like coiled springs, which most of the time are kept tucked down and out of sight. This guy was hunting, then perched and did […]


Simple Clicks – Herons

On the same morning as my Colors of Fog post, but about an hour or so later, I was farther along the shoreline at Fords Pond when I encountered the little Green Heron.  He was in position for a perfect shot, but I wasn’t prepared, and he flew away before I was able to capture […]


Simple Clicks – Susquehanna Evening

  I spent time this past week out on the Susquehanna River, putting the Tarpon in at Falls and paddling upstream in my usual pattern, to the islands that finally block my progress about three miles up.  Instead of challenging the current, I crossed the river and paddled up into the mud islands, exploring the […]


Simple Clicks – foggy creek

South Branch of Tunkhannock Creek at sunrise this past week.  If you look closely, you’ll see that it’s there – those first signs of autumn.  The final waves of wildflowers, the slight turning of the grasses, the first tinge of color on the shoreline.  Summer is fleeting now.   Related Posts:Simple Clicks – Susquehanna EveningSimple […]
