Winter Afternoon ...

“Music comes from an icicle as it melts, to live again as spring water.”
                  ~ Henry Williamson
                     ~ 1895-1977
    ~English army officer, naturalist, 
                farmer & ruralist writer

Cascading waters frozen in harmony illuminate winter’s beauty along the snow sugared trail of the Delaware and Lehigh National Heritage Corridor (D&L Trail) that hugs the Kittatinny Ridge at Lehigh Gap on a January afternoon in this monochrome shot.

In the shadow of the Kittatinny Ridge, also called Blue Mountain, 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 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.

In The Snowfall ...

“Stillness is the flower of winter,
all hope waits beneath a blanket of white.”
              ~ Unknown
The hopeful promise of spring is just around the corner as a late winter snowfall quietly paints its beauty across my favorite path in this infrared scene I captured on an early March afternoon at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.
