In The Mist Of A Summer Evening ...

Evoking a beguiling sense of mystery, the mist rises over the creek on a warm summer evening at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

In The Early Morning Mist ...





"...There are pale yellow mornings, when the mist burns slowly into day,
the air stings like autumn ..."
                     ~ Robert Hass
                       ~ born 1941
   ~ Poet Laureate of the United States
                              ~    1995-1997


The mist rises poetically soon after sunrise on a brisk and beautiful October morning near the ford of the Jordan Creek, one of my very favorite places to be and to photograph, at Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, Pennsylvania.

Sunset Dreams In The Mist ...


"Suddenly a mist fell from my eyes
and I knew the way I had to take."
                               ~ Edvard Grieg
                                             ~ 1843-1907

The evening mist rises from the pond
as if to kiss the sunset sky on a steamy spring evening at 
Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Mist Of The Autumn Morn ...


"I saw old autumn in
the misty morn
stand, shadowless like silence,
listening to silence."
                     ~ Thomas Hood
                                  ~ 1799-1845

There is something so very special about the early morning, the
serenity, the quiet beauty. This feeling of a fresh new day is palpable
as the mist rises just after sunrise on a beautiful, chilly October
morning at Wehr's Dam, Orefield, Pennsylvania.

The historic dam, awash with the waters of the Jordan Creek, was built in 1904 
and is the perfect complement  next to Wehr's Covered Bridge, built in 1841.

Sunset Glint in the Mist



"Walk on a rainbow trail; walk on a trail of song, and all about you will be beauty. There is a way out of every dark mist, over a rainbow trail."
 ~ Robert Motherwell

The light of sunset and  water from a spring rain create a path dusted with sunshine and mist at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Misty ...



"In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks."
~ John Muir

The quiet beauty of mist rolling through the trees after a spring rain at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.
