The Roving Photographer


Simple Clicks – flowing water

I stopped and played in the stream that flows across the old gravel road up at the Eales Preserve last weekend.  I had the new Olympus TG-3 with me, which is one of their “tough” series P&S cameras that is, among other things, waterproof.  And while I didn’t dunk it into the creek entirely, I […]

Hiking the Pine Barrens

12 April 2015 – this Sunday was such a beautiful day that it would have been a crime to spend it indoors.  So once my outside chores were done, I debated kayaking vs. hiking and, as I had been kayaking the morning before at Lackawanna State Park and was still unsure of the ice conditions […]

Simple Clicks – shore ice

Although there was still ice on the lake this past weekend, in the 2.5 miles I paddled I only found two places where any snow or ice remained on shore, and this was by far the bigger concentration of it.  Tucked in under a stand of pines right on the lakeside, the ice here must […]

First Paddle of Spring

11 April 2015 – Saturday morning and, for the first time in months, I got some time on the water.  I made it up to Bullhead Bay just after sunrise, operating on a friend who lives nearby who said that the water was open down to the marsh.  And so after a winter-long hiatus, I […]

Spring Update

It’s been a couple of weeks now without any posts, for which I apologize.  I’ve been working on other projects that have taken up my time, and the opportunities for photography have been few.  The weather hasn’t been any help in that department, either. Also, I’ve been without my computer for the same period, as […]

The end is nigh!

The end of winter, that is.  And I present as evidence the little guy (or girl): the American Goldfinch.  Absent these past several months, the Goldfinches are returning north from their far southern wintering grounds.  They’re still dull-colored, their rich mating plumage still several weeks away at least.  Although in a few of the photos […]

Simple Clicks – pig pile!

You wouldn’t know it by looking at this photo, but it was a cold morning when I shot this and these guys were huddled into a gosling pig pile by the shore.  It wasn’t long until the sun warmed everything up, but until then these guys – and the 20 or so cousins they had […]

Simple Clicks – Cedar Waxwings

Waxwings in the spring!  I don’t usually see these guys until later in the year so it was a pleasant surprise to find them this spring in the trees along Lackawanna Lake.  Cedar Waxwings are always such communal birds – I never see them alone but always at least in pairs, if not much larger […]

A mix of shore-dwellers

Spring’s progression doesn’t only bring green back to the landscape in an amazing range of hues, but also brings waves of new avian species to the area. I’ve managed to capture a number of migrants already this year, some of them common and others much less so. And now some of the regulars are returning, […]
