“I please myself with the graces of the winter scenery, and believe that we are as much touched by it as by the genial influences of summer.”
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Four beautiful white-tailed deer does show off their whitetails in the winter mist as a light rain falls in the late afternoon in the park.

"...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
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.

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