Simple Clicks – Hickory Run in winter

A few from this past winter – early February to be exact.  I drove down to Hickory Run State Park with the idea that the various creeks, or “runs” as they’re called down there, would be particularly scenic amid the ice and snow.  I trudged through quite a bit of deep snow to reach these […]

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 […]

Simple Clicks – Twilight

Twilight on the lake, with the ice still there.  This is from about 15-minutes before the photos in my last post, while I was warming up to the scene.  Dropped the camera into Daylight white balance to get this look, which is really pretty true to the scene – it was very blue for a […]

Fresh snowfall

Sunday morning finally gave me an actual, cloud-free sunrise, coupled with maybe a half-inch of fresh snow – perfect conditions to get out and shake off some of the cobwebs that keep building during these seemingly endless stretches of cold, bland weather.

Winter, unexpectedly – panoramas

While shooting my unexpected winter landscapes at Promised Land State Park, I made a few panoramas as well.  No surprise there.  And several of them came out well – I’m very pleased with them, perhaps even more so than the single-frame images, which just don’t capture the feel of this morning the same way. This […]

Winter, unexpectedly

Driving out for my third eagling expedition (where the feeder shots in the last post came from), I was surprised to find the landscape along the highway blanketed in a layer of new snow.  Scranton was bare when I left – we’d had a few flurries overnight but nothing that stuck. But a mere fifteen […]

More feeder birds

Just a few more feeder bird shots from my last eagling trip.  I thought I had shared these already, but it seems that they got lost in the shuffle.  So here they are – a couple of Nuthatches and a Red Squirrel, which isn’t even a bird (duh).  They were about the best shots I […]

Jim Thorpe: Winterfest

Spent a few hours in Jim Thorpe last weekend – we brought my mom down while she was visiting, knowing that she’d love the small town and it’s amazing architecture. It’s an unusual place, small twisting streets lined with a mix of old brick and row houses, all tucked into a strange little valley amid […]

Feeder Birds

Just a few shots of some feeder birds from my eagling expedition two weeks ago.  Mongaup Blind has a pair of tray feeders, one on either side, that tend to stay pretty active with a small collection of winter bird species.  Chickadees, Titmice, Sparrows, Jays – at least one of them is usually around, so […]

Eagling: take 2

I spent Saturday afternoon out at Mongaup Falls and on the Plank for what was easily a tie for the best eagling experience I’ve yet had. All I can say is wow! Couldn’t have asked for a better day. In the wake of Winter Storm Nemo (which was kind of a joke here in PA), […]
