Baby It's Cold Outside Video ...


Cool cat Dean Martin's rendition of "Baby It's Cold Outside" sets the mood to swing into the beauty of winter showcased in my original photos.l

My greatest joy as a photographer is harmonizing my original photos to music to create a lingering snapshot of the season. Enjoy!

Along These Autumn Days ...



“A beauty lights the fading year …”
              ~ Phebe A. Holder
                ~ “A Song of October”
       in The Queries Magazine, October 1890
Autumn reflects its beauty in the Lehigh Canal on an early November afternoon along the Delaware and Lehigh National Heritage Corridor (D&L Trail), Weissport, Pennsylvania, where the trail is positioned between the Lehigh River and Lehigh Canal.

The Kittatinny Ridge, also called Blue Mountain, can be seen in the distance and reflected in the water.

Running from Wilkes-Barre to Bristol, the D&L Trail passes through the Lehigh and Delaware Rivers and their canals in Pennsylvania.

Kittatinny's Color Cascade ...



“There is something incredibly nostalgic and significant about the annual cascade of autumn leaves.”
           ~ author Joe L. Wheeler
                      ~ born 1936
Travelers crossing the Lehigh Gap Bridge are treated to a view of the cascade of autumn color on display on the Kittatinny Ridge, also called Blue Mountain, on a beautiful October afternoon at Lehigh Gap.

The Lehigh Gap in Slatington, Pennsylvania, is a crossroads where the Lehigh Gap Nature Center’s trails connect two historic trails – the Appalachian Trail and the Delaware and Lehigh National Heritage Corridor (D&L Trail).

The Appalachian Trail, a foot path, follows the ridge on both sides of the Lehigh Gap, running 1,245 miles south to Georgia and 930 miles north to Maine. Running from Wilkes-Barre to Bristol, the D&L Trail passes through the Lehigh and Delaware rivers and their canals in Pennsylvania.

The Lehigh Gap Bridge was built in 1930 and rehabilitated in 1984, and spans the Lehigh River.

Just Across The Delaware ...


“A good photograph is knowing where to stand.”
                                ~ Ansel Adams
                                            ~ 1902-1984
As sunset looms on a gorgeous October day, the historic Northampton Street Bridge, commonly called The Free Bridge, can be seen across the Delaware River looking toward Phillipsburg, New Jersey from Delaware Canal State Park, Easton, Pennsylvania near the Forks of the Delaware Trailhead of the Delaware and Lehigh National Heritage Corridor (D&L Trail).

The Delaware River Toll Bridge can be seen at left, and at right the iconic Jimmy’s Doggie Stand.

The Free Bridge that spans the two 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.

Running from Wilkes-Barre to Bristol, the D&L Trail passes through the Lehigh and Delaware rivers and their canals in Pennsylvania.
