The dam, built in 1904, is next to Wehr’s Covered Bridge, which dates back to 1841, at Covered Bridge Park, Orefield, Pennsylvania.

Sweet Taste of Summer Video ...



Tony Bennett's "Candy Kisses" sets the tone for this celebration of summer showcased in my original nature photos. My greatest joy as a photographer is harmonizing my favorite original photos to music to create a lingering snapshot of the season.

The Monochrome Blues ...


"But there ain't no cure for the summertime blues ..."
                                           ~ "Summertime Blues"
                                                                ~ 1958

The song says there ain't no cure for 
the summertime blues, and there
ain't no cure for monochrome 
Great Blue! This Great Blue Heron
sits for a portrait in high contrast
monochrome on a summer evening at
Trexler Memorial Park, 
Allentown, Pennsylvania.
