Loux Covered Bridge

Fall days are a wonderful time to drive around rural Bucks County, PA and enjoy the iconic covered bridges.  During the last few days, a friend and I spent late afternoons exploring around the area.  For this image of the Loux Covered Bridge, I focused on a composition that did not include bright road signs and caught some of the fall color.

Painting Fall Colors

Gloomy grey days highlight great fall colors.  Add a little artistic flair and voila … out comes an impressionistic painting.  The colors here in eastern Pennsylvania are rapidly changing.  One day makes a big difference.  A great college friend and I took the opportunity to get a little damp and explore some of the countryside and covered bridges here in Bucks County.  The colors were great, but most important, just being out with a good friend made the day.

Happy Thanksgiving – A Walk Down a Golden Path

Happy Thanksgiving to all our family and many, many friends.  Today is a day to step back and reflect on all that we are thankful for.  Karen and I enjoyed our morning cup of coffee sitting in front of a fire as we reflected on many of the wonderful experiences that we have had together with each other, family and friends.  We look forward to many more in the future.

This abstract is a 9-image multiple exposure taken in a vertical pan down the trunk of tree.  It was taken during a walk down an autumn path with my good friend Stan.  It makes me think of, and be thankful for, the many beautiful places I have been.  I look forward to many more strolls down such golden paths with Karen, friends, or off on my own.
