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.

Frances Slocum in B&W

Back in June I spent several hours hiking at Frances Slocum State Park, doing my best to stay in the cooler shade of the forest and enjoy the scenery.  It’s a park I don’t visit very often; it’s a bit of a pain to get there, although really rather lovely in many ways.  The U-shaped […]


Morning of the Heron

  The end of June has come and gone and I’ve finally finished editing a set from then, from what I’m calling “The Morning of the Heron.”  For the simple reason that during my morning paddle, a few hours to go around about half of Lake Lackawanna, I came across a half-dozen Great Blue Herons. […]


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 – mama Merganser

I found mama Merganser on the Mongaup River, where I go eagling in the winter.  A couple of weeks back I took one of the kayaks out there, looking for someplace new to paddle.  I found mama and her chicks on a log in the river, just off Plank Road where I usually park.  I […]


Simple Clicks – morning at Fords

It had been a long time.  Months even, since the last photo-visit to Fords Pond.  It’s a simple site with fairly limited terrestrial access, but that doesn’t matter – it’s still one of my favorite places to shoot, even if I do tend to capture the same scene, the same tree, over and over again. […]


Simple Clicks – Solitary surprise

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.

An evening on the Susquehanna

Kayaking season is drawing to a close, which means that summer and even autumn are almost gone.  They went by really fast this year and looking back I’m a little startled to realize that there’s a lot of things I never got around to, or at the very least, a lot of things I had […]


Hickory Run State Park

We’re stepping back over a month here to my visit to Hickory Run State Park, a place I’ve only been once before and even now have hardly begun to explore.  Located near White Haven, PA, it’s a bit beyond my usual range but during early August I decided that I needed to get out and […]


Simple Clicks – a few more from Big Pocono

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 […]
