Debussy's Sunset ...


“There is nothing more musical than a sunset.”
                         ~ Claude Debussy
                              ~ 1862-1918
Sun and snow are in harmony as their beauty crescendos into a stunning winter sunset on an early February day at Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, Pennsylvania.

Hope Is The Thing With Feathers ...


“Hope” is the thing with feathers –
That perches in the soul –
And sings the tune without words –
And never stops at all.”
    ~ “Hope Is The Thing With Feathers”
       ~ Emily Dickinson
         ~ 1830-1886
Spring – and the hope it brings – was just around the corner when I captured this white feather that landed softly among the brown winter branches on a mid-March afternoon at Lehigh Parkway, Allentown, Pennsylvania, a reminder that hope is always in the wind and appears where you least expect it.

Frosted Fire ...



“It is the life of the crystal,
the architect of the flake,
the soul of the sunbeam,
This crisp winter air is full of it.”
       ~ John Burroughs
         ~ 1837-1921
         ~ “Winter Sunshine”
            ~ 1875
The pink hues of a winter’s cotton candy sunset dance among the ice floes in the Jordan Creek on an early February day at Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, Pennsylvania.
