The Racing Summer Ford ...



“Roll forth, my song, like the rushing river.”
                              ~ James Clarence Mangan
                                       ~ 1803-1849

A glint of sunset brushes the racing waters as they crescendo soon after a summer storm at the Ford of the Jordan Creek, one of my very favorite places to be and to photograph, at Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, Pennsylvania.

Fording A Spring Morn ...


"Joy comes in the morning."
                            ~ Psalm 30:5

God's creation renders a soft spring morning
at Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, Pennsylvania as an adorable dog splashes at the ford of the Jordan Creek.

This serene image paints why this is one of my
very favorite places to be and to photograph,
and radiates the words of Psalm 30:5, "Joy comes in the morning."

Frosting The Ford ...



"The color of springtime is in the flowers,
The color of winter is in the imagination."
                            ~ Ward Elliot Hour

Winter frosts the ford of the Jordan Creek,
one of my very favorite places to be and to 
photograph, at Trexler Nature Preserve,
Schnecksville, Pennsylvania.  

This spot exudes such beauty in every season,
and when I'm there it echoes to me
Psalm 46:10 ~ "Be still, and know that 
I am God."

I shot this frosty scene near sunset soon after the historic January Blizzard of 2016. In a winter shorn of snow until the blizzard, the storm plonked 31 inches of snow on nearby Allentown in a 24 hour period.

In The Early Morning Mist ...





"...There are pale yellow mornings, when the mist burns slowly into day,
the air stings like autumn ..."

                              ~    1995-1997


The mist rises poetically soon after sunrise on a brisk and beautiful October morning near the ford of the Jordan Creek, one of my very favorite places to be and to photograph, at Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, Pennsylvania.
