Fording A Summer Evening ...

“I saw that my life was a vast glowing page and I could do anything I wanted.”
                         ~ Jack Kerouac
                             ~ 1922-1969
As the summer wanes, a couple ford the Jordan Creek by motorcycle on a beautiful early September evening at Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, Pennsylvania in this selective color shot.

For more than 50 years kids and kids at heart have enjoyed driving through the creek.

The ford at the preserve is one of my very favorite places to be and to photograph.

Savoring The Moment ...

“If you are not filled with overflowing love, compassion and goodwill for all creatures living wild in nature, you will never know true happiness.”

My favorite white-tailed deer doe savors an apple in the spring snow on an early April evening in the park in this selective color shot.

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.

Walking On Frosting ...

  “To appreciate the beauty of a snowflake, it is necessary to stand out in the cold.”
                    ~ Aristotle

In the shadow of the northern Blue Mountain Ridge, a frosted, frozen and snow covered Leaser Lake glistens with winter’s artistry as a man walks his dog across the frozen water on a sunny February afternoon in New Tripoli, Pennsylvania in this selective color shot.

I really enjoyed being able to actually walk on the lake and take photos!

Leaser Lake’s namesake is Frederick Leaser, an American patriot who in September 1777 with his farm team hauled The Liberty Bell from Philadelphia to Allentown where it was concealed in Zion Reformed Church for protection during the Revolutionary War. His homestead is located one mile north of the lake.

Leaser Lake was built by the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission for water-oriented recreation and opened for public use in 1971. Lehigh County leases this area from the state and operates and maintains the park. The land north of the lake was purchased by the county in the early 1970s. It is entirely wooded and is used for nature study and as an addition to the State Game Lands No. 217.
