“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
~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.

"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
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.

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