Autumn Cascade ...

"The music of the far-away summer
flutters around the autumn 
seeking its former nest."
                       ~ Rabindranath Tagore
                                ~ 1861-1941

Autumn cascades like a capricious
melody over a small waterfall on the Pequest River on a picturesque Indian Summer day in 
Belvidere, New Jersey.

The Pequest - Native American for "open land," -
tumbles down to Belvidere in a series of falls,
where it meets the mighty Delaware River,
of which it is a tributary.

Belvidere, one of my very favorite places,
is a charming Victorian town on the banks
of the Pequest and Delaware Rivers.

Morning Reverie ...

"Flowing water is at once a picture and a music,
which causes to flow at the same time from my brain,
like a limpid and murmuring rivulet, sweet thoughts,
charming reveries, and melancholy remembrances."
                                                ~ Jean-Baptiste Alphonse Karr
                                                                ~ 1808-1890

The waters of the Monocacy Creek spill like memories between the 
morning sun and shadows dancing on the dam - commonly called 
Monocacy Falls - on a beautiful October day at Monocacy Park,
Bethlehem, Pennsylvania in this high contrast monochrome shot.

Heaven's Rays ...

"Give light, and the darkness will disappear of itself."
                          ~ Desiderius Erasmus
                                                        ~ 1466-1536

Sun rays reach down from from heaven
to touch the Monocacy Falls, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania
after a summer rain.
