Trimmed In Twilight ...

"Sweet memories of ... twilights trimmed in purple haze
And laughing eyes and simple ways
And quiet nights and gentle days with you
Memories, pressed between the pages of
my mind ..."

                       ~ "Memories"
                   ~ recorded by the great Elvis Presley
                                                                                                                    ~ 1968

Twilight trims the spring sky over Easton, Pennsylvania as viewed from across the Delaware River in Phillipsburg, New Jersey next to the historic Northampton Street Bridge, commonly called The Free Bridge.

The bridge that spans the states was completed in 1896 and survived massive flooding from Hurricane Diane in 1955. 

It underwent a thorough restoration in 1990 and is one of my very favorite places to photograph.
