Frost Fire ...


“If you cry because the sun has gone out of your life, your tears will prevent you from seeing the stars.”
                  ~ Rabindranath Tagore
                                     ~ 1861-1941

The brilliance of a fiery February sunset glimmers across a frozen Leaser Lake in the shadow of the northern Blue Mountain Ridge, New Tripoli, Pennsylvania.

I captured this shot of shimmering winter beauty on a quiet, chilly evening at the lake.

Leaser Lake’s namesake is Frederick Leaser, who in September 1777 with his farm team hauled The Liberty Bell from Philadelphia to Allentown where it was concealed in Zion Reformed Church. His homestead is located one mile north of the lake.

Autumn Cascade ...



"The music of the far-away summer
flutters around the autumn 
seeking its former nest."
                       ~ Rabindranath Tagore
                                ~ 1861-1941

Autumn cascades like a capricious
melody over a small waterfall on the Pequest River on a picturesque Indian Summer day in 
Belvidere, New Jersey.

The Pequest - Native American for "open land," -
tumbles down to Belvidere in a series of falls,
where it meets the mighty Delaware River,
of which it is a tributary.

Belvidere, one of my very favorite places,
is a charming Victorian town on the banks
of the Pequest and Delaware Rivers.

Champagne On A Stem ...


"What is art? It is the response of man's
creative soul to the call of the real."
                  ~ Rabindranath Tagore
                                             1861-1941

Roses may very well be the champagne of flowers.
This beautiful Rainbow Sorbet Rose is captured
in monochrome in June at the Malcolm W. Gross
Memorial Rose Gardens, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Traces Of Time ...


"Let your life lightly dance on the edges of 
Time like dew on the tip of a leaf."
           ~ Rabindranath Tagore

Spending time this March in the charming, Victorian town of
Belvidere, New Jersey, located on the banks of
the Pequest and Delaware Rivers.

Winter Gold

"Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky."
                                                                     ~ Rabindranath Tagore
