This image almost slipped through the cracks. I wanted to share it before we got too far past the snowy season. While driving around during our last snow storm, I came upon a small creek and thought what a great scene with the falling snow. I positioned myself as close to the creek as I could and chose a low angle to have the creek use two thirds of the frame.

Best of Light,
With many people still out of power here in southeastern Pennsylvania we were fortunate that we never lost power in Atglen.
Since we were blessed with our power situation, I did have an opportunity to capitalize on the beautiful snow and ice that coated everything showing mother nature in her winter whites. Here’s one of my favorite little roads “Creek Road” that is local and easily accessible for me in all weather conditions.I know it helps to have a four-wheel-drive vehicle that allows me to get around to some of my favorite spots.
Best of Light,
Over the weekend, my son (Zach), one of his buddies (Sarn) and I visited the Worlds End State Park in north central Pennsylvania. It was about a 3 1/2 hour trek to the cabin that is nestled among the hemlocks. The Loyalsock Creek which runs less than a stone’s throw away was absolutely beautiful, with snow and ice clinging to the edges.
Upon our arrival it was cold and dark inside the cabin with a cold woodstove waiting for us. It didn’t take long for Zach to build a nice cozy fire turning the cabin into a comfortable cottage for the weekend.
The cabin was set up into two rooms. The main room was equipped with a wood stove, electric cook-stove, refrigerator and dining room table while the other room were the sleeping quarters with two double bunk beds. Oh yeah, no running water (grin)
It was the perfect bachelor’s cabin 🙂
Best of light,
