“Peace came as suddenly today as came the storm a day ago.
My soul was drenched in wind and rain, frozen in fear that fell like snow.
Then all was still.
Had someone prayed?
I do not know.”
~ “After The Storm”
~ Ruth Bell Graham
~ 1920-2007The peace is palpable as cascading waters flow like silk down the Kittatinny Ridge on a beautiful spring afternoon. I shot this long exposure capture in late May 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.

“By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer.”
~ Helen Hunt Jackson (H.H. Jackson)
Autumn leaves, the late afternoon September sunlight and silky long exposure waters form a fall mosaic in the swirl of it all along the Delaware and Lehigh National Heritage Corridor (D&L Trail), Weissport, Pennsylvania, where the trail is positioned between the Lehigh River and Lehigh Canal.
Running from Wilkes-Barre to Bristol, the D&L Trail passes through the Lehigh and Delaware Rivers and their canals in Pennsylvania.

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