Light Rush ...

"Wherever there is light, one can photograph."
                                ~ Alfred Stieglitz (1864-1946)

Sunlight dances on the rushing waters of early spring
at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

A Journey Begins ...

"He whose face gives no light, shall never become a star."
                                                             ~ William Blake

Awash in the December sunlight, a leaf reflects as it begins its journey
down the Jordan Creek at Wehr's Covered Bridge Park,
Orefield, Pennsylvania.

Painting Light ...

"There was a time when meadow, grove and stream, 
The earth, and every common sight,
To me did seem
Apparell'd in celestial light,
The glory and the freshness of a dream."
                ~ William Wordsworth
       "Ode: Intimations of Immortality from Recollections of Early Childhood"

The autumn sun paints the stream last weekend at Trexler Memorial Park,
Allentown, Pennsylvania.

The Painter's Dream

"I dream my painting and I paint my dream."
                                                                     ~ Vincent van Gogh

I love finding the spots tucked away from the main path for photos. This is one of
my favorites just behind the springhouse at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania. On this November afternoon the scene looked like a painting to me.

You Light Up My Life

"We are like butterflies who flutter for a day and think it is forever." 
                                                                             ~ Carl Sagan
When I saw the sunlight filtering through the wings of these yellow butterflies on a beautiful Indian Summer day this weekend at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania, it reminded me of the 1977 Debby Boone song, "You Light Up My Life."

Carolina in The Morning ...

 "Nothing could be finer 
    than to be in Carolina in the morning ..."
                   "Carolina In The Morning"

The opening lines to the 1922 song come to life on a beautiful November morning at the Pinckney Island National Wildlife Refuge, a 4, 053-acre national wildlife refuge located in Beaufort County, South Carolina, between the mainland and Hilton Head. 

Pinckney Island NWR, established December 4, 1975, was once included in the plantation of Major General Charles Cotesworth Pinckney, a prominent lawyer active in South Carolina politics from 1801-1815.

The Painted Stream

"Sunlight is painting."
                                  ~ Nathaniel Hawthorne

Sunlight seems to paint the water with tinges of gold just before sunset in October at 
Lehigh Parkway, Allentown, Pennsylvania.
