Moment of Hope #10

We are living in some scary times right now. I am old and have lived through others but this one is somehow different and maybe more frightening. So until it is over each day I plan to post an image that provides calmness and a moment of zen. We all need a lot of moments like these right now.

Now is a good time for America to reflect. Time at home with family and friends is quality time. Breath deep and stare into a reflective pond or fountain. What do you see? Do you like it? Can it change? Should it change? If America has to change to survive a pandemic, how do we have to change to make that happen?

Reflections

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.

Sunrise at Elm Beach

Earlier this week I posted “Dock on Elm Beach” which received some nice attention. This is another image from the same session taken during a morning sunrise which I hope you enjoy.

Dock on Elm Beach

I think September and October are two of the best months for living in the Pocono Mountains. The weather is near perfect, the summer crazies have gone home and it’s too early for most hunters and skiers. The pace settles down, the air is crisp and mild and the colors are beautiful. This is a small lake about two miles from my house in Hemlock Farms. You can purchase a print of this and see other images and apparel at my commercial site.
