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.

Kittatinny Cascade ...




“Summer’s lease hath all too short a date.”
                             ~ William Shakespeare
                                    ~ 1564-1616
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.

Dancing In The Mirror ...



"There are two ways of spreading light:
to be the candle or the mirror 
that reflects it."
                    ~ Edith Wharton
                                   ~ 1862-1937 

The light of a waning winter sunset
dances as it is mirrored in the waters
spilling over a crest of the 
Little Lehigh Creek in Lehigh Parkway,
Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Color Tide ...


"First the tide rushes in
Plants a kiss on the shore ...
So I rush to your side
Like the incoming tide ..."
                              
                                     ~ "Ebb Tide"
                                                      ~ Carl Sigman, lyricist
                                                      ~ Robert Maxwell, composer
                                                                              ~ 1953

The morning sun sweeps and swirls the colors of
October like a dream in a crest of the
Little Lehigh Creek, Lehigh Parkway, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Starry Spring Dream ...



"Life is art, paint your dreams."
                                       ~ Author Unknown

An artistic, starry eyed view of water trickling over rocks
on a beautiful spring day at Trexler Nature Preserve,

Touching In Time ...


"If the hands of time were
hands that I could hold ...

Hand in hand we'd choose
the moments that should last ...

Until the hands of time would choose
to wave goodbye."
                                    "The Hands of Time"
                                               ("Brian' s Song)
                                          ~ Music by Michael Legrand
                                                 Lyrics by Marilyn & Alan Bergman 
                                                                                   1971

Autumn leaves touch momentarily in the 
crest of the Little Lehigh Creek on an October morning
at Lehigh Parkway, Allentown, Pennsylvania in this
long exposure capture.

Runneth Over ...


"I memorize moments that I'm fondest of ...
And so in these moments with sunlight above
My cup runneth over with love ...."
                                ~ "My Cup Runneth Over"
                                               ~ "I Do! I Do!"
                                                                ~1966

Summer streams over the crest of the creek
at one of my favorite spots at Trexler Memorial Park,
Allentown, Pennsylvania, bringing to mind the
beautiful words of that song.

This moment was captured in a long exposure, high contrast monochrome shot.
