December's Supermoon ...


“And who hung the moon in the starry sky
Somebody bigger than you and I …”
            ~ “Somebody Bigger Than You and I”
    ~ written by Johnny Lange, Hy Heath
            & Sonny Burke
   ~ recorded by the great Elvis Presley
             ~ 1967

The Supermoon of December 3, 2017 shines brightly over Cedar Creek Parkway, Allentown, Pennsylvania, reminding me of the line in my most favorite Gospel hymn, the wonderful “Somebody Bigger Than You and I,” recorded by the great Elvis Presley in 1967.

A Supermoon happens when the full moon coincides with the moon’s closest approach to Earth in its orbit. Supermoons make the moon appear a little brighter and closer than normal.

The term Supermoon has only been used in the past 40 years.

The Art Of The Swan ...


“Until you spread your wings, you will have no idea how far you can fly.”
              ~ Napolean Bonaparte
                     ~ 1769-1821 
A beautiful mute swan artfully flashes its wingspan on Lake Muhlenberg in this high contrast monochrome shot I captured on a late August evening at Cedar Creek Parkway, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Spring With A Cherry On Top ...



“Came the spring with all its splendor,
All its birds and blossoms,
All its flowers and leaves and grasses.”
                   ~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
                                ~ 1807-1882
An artistic view of delightful cherry blossoms that top off an April afternoon with the spirit of spring on North Ott Street near Cedar Creek Parkway, Allentown, Pennsylvania, where Kwanzan Cherry Trees line the city with splendor with their beautiful but fleeting pink canvas.

There are 46 Japanese Flowering Cherry Trees in the vicinity. The original trees date to the late 1950s and early 1960s.
