Lights Across The Delaware ...



“Sometimes I do get to places just as God’s ready to have somebody click the shutter.”      
           ~ Ansel Adams
                  ~ 1902-1984
As an October sundown closes a beautiful autumn day, the historic Northampton Street Bridge, commonly called the Free Bridge, lights up across the Delaware River looking toward Phillipsburg, New Jersey from Delaware Canal State Park, Easton, Pennsylvania near the Forks of the Delaware Trailhead of the Delaware and Lehigh National Heritage Corridor (D&L Trail).

The Delaware River Toll Bridge can be seen behind The Free Bridge, which spans the two states, was completed in 1896 and survived massive flooding from Hurricane Diane in 1955. It underwent a thorough restoration in 1990 and is one of my very favorite places to photograph.

Running from Wilkes-Barre to Bristol, the D&L Trail passes through the Lehigh and Delaware rivers and their canals in Pennsylvania.

Just Across The Delaware ...


“A good photograph is knowing where to stand.”

As sunset looms on a gorgeous October day, the historic Northampton Street Bridge, commonly called The Free Bridge, can be seen across the Delaware River looking toward Phillipsburg, New Jersey from Delaware Canal State Park, Easton, Pennsylvania near the Forks of the Delaware Trailhead of the Delaware and Lehigh National Heritage Corridor (D&L Trail).

The Delaware River Toll Bridge can be seen at left, and at right the iconic Jimmy’s Doggie Stand.

April On The Delaware ...



"Roaring dreams take place in a 
perfectly silent mind.
Now that we know this,
throw the raft away."
                     ~ Jack Kerouac
                           ~ 1922-1969  


Whether your mind is harkening back to bygone Aprils or racing with hopes for the future, April on the Delaware River is a beautiful place to dream.

Whether you’re cruising in a speedboat or fishing – with your dog as first mate – on a small craft shaded by a green umbrella, sailing the river that straddles New Jersey and Pennsylvania offers a glorious vista.

It’s also a spectacular view from the Riverton-Belvidere Toll Supported Bridge, my vantage point when capturing this shot on a day teeming with the best of spring’s sun and warmth.

The bridge, which opened in 1904, links Belvidere, New Jersey and Riverton, Pennsylvania.

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