“... I wanna go and bounce the moon
Just like a toy balloon…
You make me feel so young
You make me feel there are songs to be sung
And bells to be rung
And a wonderful fling to be flung …”
~ “You Make Me Feel So Young”
~ 1946 popular song composed by
Josef Myrow, lyrics by Mack Gordon
~ recorded by the wonderful Frank Sinatra
The rising moon of a beautiful mid-November evening indeed looks the size of a toy balloon you could bounce over the Central Range of Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, Pennsylvania.
Background texture by Jai Johnson added for artistic effect.

The lilting beauty of the folk song "Today," recorded by the New Christy Minstrels in 1964, sets the melodious mood for this celebration of spring showcased in my original photos.
My greatest joy as a photographer is harmonizing my favorite original photos to music to create a lingering snapshot of the season ... Enjoy!

"I'll remember you ...
To your arms someday I'll return to stay...
Love me always, promise always
Oooh, you'll remember too,
I'll remember you."
"I'll Remember You"
~ written by Kui Lee, 1964
~ recorded by Elvis Presley, 1966
Flares of a December sunset over a field
in Orefield, Pennsylvania echo in my mind
like the beautiful song "I'll Remember You,"
written by Kui Lee in 1964 and recorded by
the great Elvis Presley in 1966.

"I found the poems in the field
and only wrote them down."
~ John Clare
The words of the English poet John Clare came to life
to me when I photographed this scene just before sunset. It
was a waning summer evening just off the Ironton Rail Trail,
Whitehall, Pennsylvania, with the chirp of crickets and the
soft coo of a mourning dove the only sounds filling the air ...
a simple peace and a beautiful reminder to me of why
I love nature photography.

"I like the silent church before the service begins,
better than any preaching."
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
I always love photographing country churches such as
Frieden's Evangelical Lutheran Church, which dates
back to 1793. The Sunday afternoon sunlight
streams on the church nestled in rural
Center Valley, Pennsylvania on a summer's day.

Ella Fitzgerald's "My One And Only Love" sets the jazzy backdrop
for the this celebration of the splendor that is spring showcased in
my original nature photos. My greatest joy as a photographer is
harmonizing my favorite original photos to music to create
a lingering snapshot of the season.
