The Roving Photographer


Simple Clicks – ice fishermen

The past several posts have focused around looking down into the ice, and the dark lake below.  I thought it was time to look around again, at the world atop the ice.  While exploring the ice fishing holes, I also captured a few shots of the ice fishermen themselves, and the little communities that spring […]

Ice fishing holes 03

Presenting the third, and possibly final, segment in my collection of ice fishing hole photos.  I can’t decide if this mini-project is interesting, or just stupid.  On one hand the holes, their variety and features, are interesting.  And scouting them is kind of an adventure, never knowing what each will show me.  I’ve seen some […]

Ice fishing holes 02

Following my post from last week, I’ve since returned to Lackawanna State Park and trekked farther across the well-frozen lake.  While on the water, so to speak, I was keeping an eye out for ice fishing holes to add to my photographic collection started in the previous post.  Turns out that isn’t hard to do […]

Views of winter

A last few photos from my winter hike, for which I arrived over prepared.  I set out with my Frog Tog waterproof pants on over my jeans, bundled up with my winter parka, thick socks in my old-style snow boots.  Within ten minutes two things were clear: there was a blazed, packed trail through the […]

The end is nigh!

The end of winter, that is.  And I present as evidence the little guy (or girl): the American Goldfinch.  Absent these past several months, the Goldfinches are returning north from their far southern wintering grounds.  They’re still dull-colored, their rich mating plumage still several weeks away at least.  Although in a few of the photos […]

Ice Fishing

Last weekend, when the temperature finally rose above zero – and above freezing – I trekked out to the park for my annual “go stand on the ice” event.  It’s something I do each winter and, to be honest, it’s probably a little silly.  After all, I kayak these same waters eight months out of […]

Simple Clicks – takeoff

A couple of neat finds from my hike on Sunday afternoon.  We’d had an inch or two of snowfall the night before and the woods were filled with birds.  How the two are connected, I’m not really sure; it seems much too early for any of the southern migrants to be returning.  Although I could […]

Simple Clicks – Frosty

Found this guy yesterday on the shores of Lackawanna Lake.  I was taking advantage of the sudden day-long heat wave (it got up to 37!) and hiked down to Kennedy Creek.  It was a popular day for hiking; the trail was well-blazed.  And someone stopped and built this guy right on the point by the […]

Eagling frustrations

The photo above appeared in my last post about my first eagling adventure of 2015.  It’s not a great photo and isn’t hardly one of my better examples of wildlife photography.  For starters, there was too much distance between me and the eagles to really get a good shot, and I had to crop from […]
