Simple Clicks – Paddling in Fog

  Here’s something I don’t think I’ve done before…a photo from my phone.  I’m well aware that cell-phone-ography is a (somewhat) legitimate thing now – and has been for some time.  But I don’t buy into it.  Call me old fashioned, but my personal feeling is still that just because my phone has a camera, […]


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.

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.
