Brisk Beauty ...

"The leaves fall, the wind blows,
and the farm country slowly changes 
from the summer cottons into
its winter wools."
                        ~ Henry Beston
                                ~ 1888-1968

Chilly November winds whip the waters this weekend at Leaser Lake, New Tripoli, Pennsylvania, but that doesn't detract from the beauty of this autumn day at the lake in the shadow of the northern Blue Mountain Ridge.

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.

Chasing Sunset ...

"Life is no brief candle...
it is a sort of splendid torch ...
make it burn as brightly as possible ..."
                               ~ George Bernard Shaw

 A man on his personal watercraft
chases a summer sunset on the golden
waters of the Delaware River near the
historic Northampton Street Bridge 
(commonly called The Free Bridge)
that spans Phillipsburg, New Jersey
and Easton, Pennsylvania.

Painting The Chill ...

"December's wintry breath is already clouding the pond, frosting the pane,
obscuring summer's memory..."
 ~ John Geddes

The chilly waters of the Jordan Creek spill over Wehr's Dam, Orefield, Pennsylvania
 after this season's first snowfall.
