Most of these shots were taken in my garden, which up to a few years ago would have astounded folks who know me well. Some of them were taken down the road a ways – I guess I was in a garden state of mind.
What I had intended as a series of sunset pictures presented me with a nice surprise as darkness fell – the perfect ending.
So who takes nature photographs at a board meeting? I do. Well, not AT the meeting, but before and after. If you’ve never visited The Lacawac Nature Sanctuary, you’ve got a treat in store. Visit them at www.lacawac.org. You won’t regret it!
Maybe it’s my imagination, but Spring seems late in coming to the woods this year. Here we are at the end of April and except for the forsythia (which is out of place in the woods to begin with) not much around here seems to be very enthusiastic. Ah, well, it will come and then [...]
Most people who visit World’s End State Park in Northeastern Pennsylvania make it a point to find the overlook to the “Loyalsock Canyon Vista,” and it’s worth the effort. On a recent visit, we noticed a sign on the other side of the parking lot (opposite the overlook): “Rock Garden,” with an arrow pointing into [...]
This is not your usual Burnside feel-good, intimate nature or grand landscape entry. This is about you. This show consists of images from a walk around “the block.” My block is basically about a mile around – a half mile along the lake road, and then a mile back on an old dirt road up [...]
I guess this is my first spring walk through the woods, though I had to look pretty hard to find evidence of spring.
Someone gave Phil a list of “towns in the middle of nowhere” in northern and eastern region of Pennsylvania. Phil and I like towns in the middle of nowhere, and heading the list was Leraysville, up in Bradford County. I knew about Leraysville because of the eponymous Cheese Factory. We did not have definitive directions, [...]
A beautiful day in Pennsylvania – just the day for a ride up to Eagles Mere and a return trip through the beautiful Endless Mountains.
I found Stonehedge Gardens quite by accident by playing around with an iPhone app, called “Roadtrippers.” It’s a good app in concept, but the execution – not so much. It did, however, lead me to Stonehedge Gardens, a wonderful place a few miles south of Tamaqua. From their web site: The mission of Stonehedge Gardens is to [...]
Third and final installment of the Delaware Water Gap series. You should do it sometime!
This is part two of my recent trek up the hill.
Yesterday I had the good fortune to climb up to the top of the Delaware River overlook in the DWG National Recreation Area. I’d been there once before and knew for sure it needed a return visit. It was a challenging hike, but I knew this going in and, well, spring is here and it’s [...]
I came upon a stump of a fallen tree. I looked closely, and stayed for nearly an hour. There is art in them thar woods! There are 14 images in this slide show, and each one stays on the screen for seven seconds – in total, a little over a minute and a half. At [...]
I’ve about had it with winter. Still, I’ve managed to get out a little and find some trees.
I can’t explain it – I have a fascination with ice. Maybe it’s the association between photography and glass and light. Today I took 129 images in about two hours. Cutting it down to twenty was tough, but then I always have a problem with editing. Maybe I got so many today that it’s out [...]
There’s a place nearby that I return to regularly, usually with my partner-in-photo-crime, Phil, because it’s nearby, relatively secluded, and always changing. We refer to it simply as “The Pond,” but the pond is merely the centerpiece of a small parcel of land densely populated with brush, brambles, twisted vines, wonderful trees and underbrush. As with [...]
The last of a three part series from nice week on Cape Cod, these photos are all from Provincetown, where the food is great, the people are friendly and the wind blows COLD!
Part two of a winter week on Cape Cod. Wellfleet and points north.
Cape Cod is one of my favorite places, but I’d never been there in the dead of winter. Got that fixed this past week. These are all from Wellfleet and points north – my favorite part of the Cape. More to come – stay tuned!
We got a light, but sticky snow last night that clung to everything. It made for a nice set of images in black and white (and everything in between, of course).
The weather having fooled me with the second nice day in a row, I celebrated by visiting the Seven Tubs Natural Area for a snowy walk – a rare treat. I did the whole Blue Loop, a favorite of mine, in good time, arriving back at my departure area just as the sun was setting. [...]
View in Full Screen: Click the square thing on the corner just above. Being born on Valentine’s Day has its pros and cons. When you are young, you are “a Little Valentine,” which wears thin before you might think, at least if you’re a boy. As you get a little older, you have to gush [...]
The snow this past weekend here in Northeastern Pennsylvania was not nearly so impressive as it was along the coast, but it did present an opportunity for some nice images.
