Until Next Summer ...



“I’ll remember you
Long after this endless summer has gone
I’ll be lonely oh so lonely
Living only to remember you …

To your arms someday I’ll return to stay
Till then I will remember too
Every bright star we made wishes upon
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 the great Elvis Presley, 1966

A trail running through the State Game Lands to Bake Oven Knob, Germansville, Pennsylvania is spun into a summer memory as my most favorite of seasons shows off the last of its sun-dappled beauty on a mid-September afternoon.

Doe's Taste Of Summer ...



“… I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought of grief …
For a time I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.”
                       ~ “The Peace of Wild Things”
                                      ~ Wendell Berry
                                       ~ born 1934
                 ~ American novelist, poet,  
                    environmental activist,         
                      cultural critic & farmer

My favorite white-tailed deer doe enjoys a taste of summer as she savors an apple on a beautiful July evening in the park.

I’ve been blessed to photograph this doe and her fawns since 2012, and it’s a true joy to me personally and as a photographer.

Kittatinny Cascade ...




“Summer’s lease hath all too short a date.”
                             ~ William Shakespeare
                                    ~ 1564-1616
Cascading waters along the Kittatinny Ridge, also called Blue Mountain, flow like silk in harmony in late summer, my most favorite of seasons - oh that it would last longer! I shot this long exposure capture on a beautiful August afternoon at Lehigh Gap along the Delaware and Lehigh National Heritage Corridor (D&L Trail).

The Lehigh Gap in Slatington, Pennsylvania, is a crossroads where the Lehigh Gap Nature Center’s trails connect two historic trails – the Appalachian Trail and the D&L Trail.

The Appalachian Trail, a foot path, follows the ridge on both sides of the Lehigh Gap, running 1,245 miles south to Georgia and 930 miles north to Maine. Running from Wilkes-Barre to Bristol, the D&L Trail passes through the Lehigh and Delaware rivers and their canals in Pennsylvania.
