The Roving Photographer

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 – 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 – Sunrise

A pair leftover from last September, from an early morning when I was on my way to Lackawanna State Park with the kayak.  Coming over the hill towards Bullhead Bay, the sun was lighting both the clouds and fog and I couldn’t help but throw the flashers on and pull over.  I wandered up and […]


A partial skunking

This was the view I was treated to Saturday morning, for about ten minutes.  Of which eight were spent driving down the highway on my way to the park.  My morning plans had called for a sunrise outing, which didn’t work out quite as I’d hoped.  The conditions were right – some clouds, some fog […]


Sunrise Fog

In my previous post I shared a series of very colorful sunrise images and called it,very unimaginatively, Sunrise Color.  Well this is the sister post, with the outtakes from that morning that just didn’t go well enough with the others for me to include them there, despite the fact that I really liked them (I outright […]


Sunrise Color

So here’s this past Monday morning up at Bullhead Bay, shivering in shorts and a light jacket that weren’t the smartest choice while fog curled around my ankles.  I shoot here a lot, the shoreline and especially the dock being perennial favorites of mine.  If I keep working a location enough, I figure that I’ll […]


Vermont landscapes

Just about to wrap up the last photos from my Vermont trip, ending with a few landscapes.  This series came from my last morning outing, on a day when I wasn’t sure what I wanted to shoot.  All I knew for certain is that I was bored going to the same locations and wanted something […]


Beaver Pond

I was able to get a few new sites in during my time in Vermont; this was the first of them, Beaver Pond, near Pico Mountain.  As you can see, it’s not much of a pond – really just a wet meadow, cut by a pair of creeks.  That’s how it shows up in the […]


Simple Clicks – Fresh snowfall panorama

Vertical panoramas are tricky.  You need a narrow area of interest, something that will fit in the short dimension of the final composition.  Perhaps more importantly, you need enough “stuff” to fill all that vertical space, and preferably stuff that is meaningful and worth the pixels.  In this case, the image came about from my […]
