“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.

“Summer’s lease hath all too short a date.”
~ William Shakespeare
Cascading waters along the Kittatinny Ridge, also called Blue Mountain, flow like silk in harmony in late summer, my most favorite of seasons - oh that it would last longer! I shot this long exposure capture on a beautiful August afternoon at Lehigh Gap along the Delaware and Lehigh National Heritage Corridor (D&L Trail).
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.
