Yee Haw ! ...



“That it will never come again is what makes life sweet. Dwell in possibility. Find ecstasy in life; the mere sense of living is joy enough.”
                    ~ Emily Dickinson
                          ~ 1830-1886
A female common merganser duck shows off her wingspan and seems to say “Yee Haw!” as she relishes the beauty of an early September afternoon at Budd M. Jones Municipal Park, Belvidere, New Jersey.

Lights Across The Delaware ...



“Sometimes I do get to places just as God’s ready to have somebody click the shutter.”      
           ~ Ansel Adams
                  ~ 1902-1984
As an October sundown closes a beautiful autumn day, the historic Northampton Street Bridge, commonly called the Free Bridge, lights up across the Delaware River looking toward Phillipsburg, New Jersey from Delaware Canal State Park, Easton, Pennsylvania near the Forks of the Delaware Trailhead of the Delaware and Lehigh National Heritage Corridor (D&L Trail).

The Delaware River Toll Bridge can be seen behind The Free Bridge, which spans the two states, was completed in 1896 and survived massive flooding from Hurricane Diane in 1955. It underwent a thorough restoration in 1990 and is one of my very favorite places to photograph.

Running from Wilkes-Barre to Bristol, the D&L Trail passes through the Lehigh and Delaware rivers and their canals in Pennsylvania.

Just Across The Delaware ...


“A good photograph is knowing where to stand.”

As sunset looms on a gorgeous October day, the historic Northampton Street Bridge, commonly called The Free Bridge, can be seen across the Delaware River looking toward Phillipsburg, New Jersey from Delaware Canal State Park, Easton, Pennsylvania near the Forks of the Delaware Trailhead of the Delaware and Lehigh National Heritage Corridor (D&L Trail).

The Delaware River Toll Bridge can be seen at left, and at right the iconic Jimmy’s Doggie Stand.
