Allegheny River Reflections

This is a view of the Allegheny River in Western Pennsylvania, seen from Tarentum. I took a quick walk through the park along the river on a beautiful autumn day and took as many photos as I could. The hill is very high and steep behind this row of trees and otherwise the hill comes […]

From photos taken while canoeing on Chartiers Creek on hot summer nights a decade or more ago, I still remember that perfect sunset and the still water at that bend in the creek, and the storm that crashed through and left a delicate pink mist in the air. I also remember painting each one and […]
