The Racing Summer Ford ...



“Roll forth, my song, like the rushing river.”
                              ~ James Clarence Mangan
                                       ~ 1803-1849

A glint of sunset brushes the racing waters as they crescendo soon after a summer storm at the Ford of the Jordan Creek, one of my very favorite places to be and to photograph, at Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, Pennsylvania.

You'll Never Walk Alone ...



“When you walk through a storm hold your head up high
And don’t be afraid of the dark.
At the end of the storm is a golden sky
And the sweet silver song of a lark.
Walk on through the wind,
Walk on through the rain,
Tho’ your dreams be tossed and blown.
Walk on, walk on with hope in your heart
And you’ll never walk alone,
You’ll never, ever walk alone.

Walk on, walk on with hope in our heart
And you’ll never walk alone,
You’ll never, ever walk alone.”
              ~ “You’ll Never Walk Alone”
             ~show tune from the 1945 
Rodgers & Hammerstein musical “Carousel”
              ~ recorded by the great Elvis Presley
                                                      ~ 1967

“At the end of the storm is a golden sky…” These lyrics from the beautiful and inspiring  “You’ll Never Walk Alone” came to mind when I saw this gorgeous sunset at the close of a stormy summer day in August at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Frost Fire ...


“If you cry because the sun has gone out of your life, your tears will prevent you from seeing the stars.”
                  ~ Rabindranath Tagore
                                     ~ 1861-1941

The brilliance of a fiery February sunset glimmers across a frozen Leaser Lake in the shadow of the northern Blue Mountain Ridge, New Tripoli, Pennsylvania.

I captured this shot of shimmering winter beauty on a quiet, chilly evening at the lake.

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