who do not tax their lives with forethought of grief …
For a time I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.”

A beautiful four point white-tailed deer buck strikes a majestic pose as a peaceful hush sweeps across the field as a midwinter snowfall begins cascading from the sky in this high contrast monochrome shot I captured in the park in the late afternoon of a February day.

A sweet white butterfly alights on a flower during a breezy, beautiful late September afternoon along the Delaware and Lehigh National Heritage Corridor (D&L Trail) at Lehigh Gap.
The Appalachian Trail, a foot path, follows the ridge on both sides of the Lehigh Gap, running 1,245 miles south to Georgia and 930 miles north to Maine. Running from Wilkes-Barre to Bristol, the D&L Trail passes through the Lehigh and Delaware rivers and their canals in Pennsylvania.
