DreamMap Kindle Price lowers to $.90 on Saturday

We are getting close to publishing our sequel to DreamMap. We both liked the first book but love the sequel Worlds Apart. If you have never read DreamMap, there is a three page summary as an Introduction in Worlds Apart. You can also read a sample on Amazon. However we recommend reading DreamMap first.

To encourage that, if you purchase DreamMap by clicking on the link in the right hand column you will be able to buy the Kindle Version for just 99 cents. If you purchase the trade paperback you will get the Kindle version for free. Click here to go to DreamMap.

A Lily Found

I haven’t been able to shoot much this summer being hobbled by a bad back. I have been spending my time instead editing and reimagining old images. I shot this lily years ago at our house in the Pocono Mountains. I remember thinking when I took it that I was treating this like a portrait with a key light. The shadows on the leaves of the stamen create a certain drama to the image.

Happy Labor Day

Now that I am retired, I think I have a deeper appreciation of those who labor. Of course I worked for a long time and still do creative work every day, but there is work and then there is labor.

I have also done some labor in my time. I worked in a commercial bakery. I worked in supermarkets. I was a cab driver. I have done photography inside nuclear reactors, steel mills and paper mills. I understand what labor is and to all of you who labor…thanks and enjoy your day!

End of Summer Sunrise

The change of light that occurs as you approach the fall equinox is quite dramatic. The light becomes more golden and softer making for dramatic sunrises even in the absence of clouds.

Taken at Elm Beach in the Pocono Mountains in the Delaware National Forest.

Fall Reflections

I may be jumping the gun but nature’s color show is about to begin. This one was taken a few years ago before the impacts of global warming were so evident. Now it seems a lot of trees are dropping their leaves early and its been a few years since we have a had a show like this one.

Taken in the Pocono Mountains in the Delaware National Forrest.

Delicate Arch Revisited

I recently came across this image and edited it NIK editing tools and Adobe Photoshop.

If you have never been to Arches National Park, you should think about making the trip. The spectacular views are primarily sandstone and eroding away. The Park Service thought about covering some of the formations with a clear polyethylene chemical but abandoned the idea as environmentally unsafe.

Although there are signs everywhere telling people to not climb on the rocks and stay on the paths, there are a lot of idiots that ignore this and are helping the natural process of erosion with the death of a million touches. Park Rangers fear that Delicate Arch may not last too much longer and although there are many other spectacular views in the park, the collapse of Delicate Arch will be a sad event so see it soon.

Owen Reflected

When my future son in law first visited us in the Pocono Mountains he did not have his now world famous beard. His beard has absolutely nothing to do with this picture. We took him and my daughter to Grey Towers in Milford Pennsylvania. The famous house of Gifford Pinchot.

There had been heavy rain the night before and I took this picture of tree reflections in a small pond. I didn’t realize Owen was even in the picture. My recent image, Upside Down in Mexico has caused me to revisit old pictures of reflections. This one takes on a surrealistic feel when turned upside down and cropped.
