After The April Rain ...


“Our spring has come at last with the soft laughter of April suns and shadow of April showers.” 
                      ~ Byron Caldwell Smith
After soaring temperatures into the 80s in mid-April spurred it to bloom, my favorite pink magnolia tree still looks beautiful just after a cold spring rain at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

The Spring Melt ...


“Spring is the time of year when it is summer in the sun and winter in the shade.”
                    ~ Charles Dickens
                            ~ 1812-1870
The spring melt is on at Geiger’s Covered Bridge as the late March sun melts the snow off the roof a few days after a snowstorm on the first full day of spring March 21 brought more than a foot of snow to the region.

Geiger’s Covered Bridge is an historic wooden covered bridge in North Whitehall Township, Pennsylvania. It is a 112-foot-long Burr Truss bridge, constructed in 1860. It has vertical plank siding and an entry portal of stepped square planks. It crosses the Jordan Creek and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980. It can be accessed from The Covered Bridge Trail of the Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, Pennsylvania.

The Art Of The Swan ...


“Until you spread your wings, you will have no idea how far you can fly.”
              ~ Napolean Bonaparte
                     ~ 1769-1821 
A beautiful mute swan artfully flashes its wingspan on Lake Muhlenberg in this high contrast monochrome shot I captured on a late August evening at Cedar Creek Parkway, Allentown, Pennsylvania.
