Snowy Eveningtide ...

“Who dreamed that beauty passes like a dream?”
           ~ William Butler Yeats
               ~ 1865-1939
As sunset fades, a beautiful eveningtide slips over the landscape like a dream after a fresh snowfall at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

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.

One January Day ...

“January is here, with eyes that keenly glow,
A frost-mailed warrior striding a steady steed of snow.”
          ~ Edgar Fawcett
             ~ 1847-1904
 A light afternoon snowfall brushes the upper plateau of Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania, painting winter’s quiet beauty on the canvas of one January day.
