Killdeer at Prompton

  Found this guy up at Prompton Lake last week during a sunset paddle.  I drove up in hopes that the cloud-studded sky would last through sunset and produce some great drama over the lake.  That was a flop – the clouds all evaporated just before sunset.  But as I was launching the kayak I […]


Simple Clicks – Prompton sunset

Another evening spent on the water and I’m the better for it.  Aside from coming home refreshed, with a good workout and clear mind, I came home with some great photos as well, including some nice plover action that I’ll share soon.  The second half of my paddle was just a paddle, no wildlife, but […]


Frances Walter Dam

Headed out to the Frances Walter Dam one evening a few weeks back with the idea that I’d be on the water through sunset and could grab some really great shots.  The geology around the dam is unique in this area, a lot of rocky bluffs and boulders, a much more rugged appearance than the […]


Sunrise on a mountain

  There are precious few mountains in Pennsylvania – a statement that depends entirely on perspective and will probably be declared untrue by (at least) the locals.  But from where I’m standing, it’s true.  PA just isn’t mountain country, even the very lovely Endless Mountains which are really more like rolling hills.  But we do […]


Simple Clicks – Water Gap at sunrise

One of the simple joys of being a photographer is getting to experience some truly beautiful things – generally without a lot of distractions.  In this case, it was getting to admire the Delaware Water Gap at sunrise from the top of Camelback Mountain.  I had to share the place with just one other person, […]


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 […]
