Wisp Of A Summer Morn ...




“Many a forenoon have I stolen away, preferring to spend thus the most valued part of the day; for I was rich, if not in money, in sunny hours and summer days, and spent them lavishly; nor do I regret that I did not waste more of them in the workshop or the teacher’s desk.”

                       ~ Henry David Thoreau
                                  ~ 1817-1862
                            ~ “Walden”
                 ~originally published August 9, 1854

To me, there’s nothing so beautiful in nature as a summer morning, and Thoreau’s words seamlessly flow through this image of milkweed basking in the morning sun that I shot on a brilliant August day at Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, Pennsylvania.

If we all had more sunny hours and summer days, how much richer – and happier – we’d all be.

Morning Reverie ...


"Flowing water is at once a picture and a music,
which causes to flow at the same time from my brain,
like a limpid and murmuring rivulet, sweet thoughts,
charming reveries, and melancholy remembrances."
                                                ~ Jean-Baptiste Alphonse Karr
                                                                ~ 1808-1890

The waters of the Monocacy Creek spill like memories between the 
morning sun and shadows dancing on the dam - commonly called 
Monocacy Falls - on a beautiful October day at Monocacy Park,
Bethlehem, Pennsylvania in this high contrast monochrome shot.

The Magic Of Ordinary Days ...


"Simple days bring simple joys ..."
                              ~ Emily Lawless
                                              ~ 1845-1913

The sweet morning light of summer dances and shimmers into
beautiful bokeh around a buddleia flower on the banks of the
Jordan Creek at Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, Pennsylvania ...
the magic of ordinary days.

Heron Of An Autumn Morn ...


"All good things are wild and free."
               ~ Henry David Thoreau
                              ~ 1817-1862

Great Blue Heron peers with a hunter's gaze perched in the sunshine and shadows of an autumn morning on the banks of the Little Lehigh Creek, Lehigh Parkway, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Freedom By The Morning Light ...


"This land will remain
the land of the free
Only so long as it is
the home of the brave."
                          ~ Elmer Davis
                                        ~ 1890-1958

May is the month we celebrate Armed Forces Day & Memorial Day, the perfect time to express deep gratitude to our nation's veterans. By your bravery and courage we remain the land of the free!

Magnolia By Morning ...



"Despite the forecast, live like it's spring."
                                        ~ Lilly Pulitzer
                                                  ~ 1931-2013

The sunlight of an April morning whispers softly
as a dream around the magnolia tree at my favorite
spot at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.
