The River Wild ...

“Roll forth, my song, like the rushing river.”
             ~ James Clarence Mangan
                  ~ 1803-1849 
The rushing winter rapids of the Lehigh River come to a beautiful crescendo on a January afternoon at Lehigh Gap along the Delaware and Lehigh National Heritage Corridor (D&L Trail).

In the shadow of the Kittatinny Ridge, also called Blue Mountain, The Lehigh Gap in Slatington, Pennsylvania, is a crossroads where the Lehigh Gap Nature Center’s trails connect two historic trails – the Appalachian Trail and the D&L Trail.

The Appalachian Trail, a foot path, follows the ridge on both sides of the Lehigh Gap, running 1,245 miles south to Georgia and 930 miles north to Maine. Running from Wilkes-Barre to Bristol, the D&L Trail passes through the Lehigh and Delaware rivers and their canals in Pennsylvania.

Winter At The Ford ...

Winter’s quiet beauty paints a simple elegance in this high contrast monochrome shot I captured during a January sunset at the Ford of the Jordan Creek, one of my very favorite places to be and to photograph at Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, Pennsylvania.

One January Day ...

“January is here, with eyes that keenly glow,
A frost-mailed warrior striding a steady steed of snow.”
          ~ Edgar Fawcett
             ~ 1847-1904
 A light afternoon snowfall brushes the upper plateau of Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania, painting winter’s quiet beauty on the canvas of one January day.

Winter Red ...

“I’d rather learn from one bird how to sing than teach 10,000 stars how not to dance.”
