The Icing Over The Creek ...


“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
Icicles seemingly sing with artistic beauty in the sunshine of a winter afternoon, after forming on a fallen tree trunk over the Jordan Creek, in this high contrast monochrome shot I captured on a January day at Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, Pennsylvania.

I'll Fly Away ...


“… Just a few more days and then
I’ll fly away
To a land where joys will never end
I’ll fly away …”
           ~ “I’ll Fly Away”
          ~ written by Alfred E. Brumley
        in 1929, published in 1932
  ~ “I’ll Fly Away” has been called the most recorded Gospel song. One of the earliest recordings of the hymn was made by the Selah Jubilee Singers in 1941. It has been recorded by many artists, including George Jones, Johnny Cash and Alan Jackson.

It is a frequently used in worship services by Baptists, Pentecostals, Nazarenes, the Churches of Christ & many Methodists.

I captured this high contrast monochrome shot of milkweed seeds in the October breeze before they fly away on an autumn afternoon at Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, Pennsylvania.

Poetry In Motion ...


“The appearance of things changes according to the emotions; and thus we see magic and beauty in them, while the magic and beauty are really in ourselves.”
                         ~ Kahlil Gibran
                           ~ 1883-1931

The light of a mid-November sunset dances like poetry in motion on a crest of the Little Lehigh Creek on a beautiful autumn day in this long exposure shot I captured at Lehigh Parkway, Allentown, Pennsylvania.
