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.

Hawk's Winter Watch ...

“Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.”
                ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
                      ~ 1803-1882 
Regal Red-Tailed Hawk peers from a high perch, gazing over the winter landscape in search of prey as sunset beckons on a February evening at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

This bird of prey is the most common hawk in North America.

Background texture by Jai Johnson added for artistic effect.

October's Party ...

“October gave a party; the leaves by hundreds came –
The chestnuts, oaks and maples,
And leaves of every name.
The sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band …”
              ~ “October’s Party”
                       ~ George Cooper
                             ~ 1840-1927
October gives a party as the morning sun shines on an autumn in full bloom on a beautiful late October day at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.
