Thank you for visiting Durham Township!
Not sure what the temperature is at that moment but it brings to mind that strange pressure in the air just before a nice storm. That quieting of things around you and weird stillness - love it Kathleen... I am in northern CA now and miss this like crazy, especially during the summer :)
Lovely. Really nice range of light, great sense of scale. Beautiful work, as always, Kathleen!
An interesting change from the regular hilly terrain,
A picture that could pass for midwestern plane.
Now quite a number of these are accruing
Because of all these thunderstorms brewing.
Great contrast Kathleen. I'll bet the corn is ready for a drink.
Beautiful! When I was in the Lancaster area a few weeks ago, I saw some lovely thunder storm skies. They are such a rarity in very southern Southern California so I am thrilled with I visit my daughter in VA and there are storms.
Excellent demonstration of near space appreciation as once again you are the pilot of your craft. (looking back over the years of digital files will show that June is a bit of a show-off too:)
Dotted lines on such a well rendered approaching storm.
What is so rare as a day in June
Then, if ever, come perfect days
This looks so much like the severe weather that my daughter and I went through on our trip up north last week. Pretty intense, but exciting just the same.
Dear Mz V,
There is no price set on the lavish summer,
And June may be had by the poorest comer.
Joy comes, grief goes,
we know not how
Everything is happy now
Wonderful light in this powerful image.
Oh, how I love it. This is immense. In every meaning of the word.
Food on the farm
Fish in the sea
Birds in the air
Leaves on the tree
That's how it goes
I love a good stormy sky, and you've captured it beautifully here!
wow, awesome beautiful shot
tis safe to bet
t will soon pour
with camera set
A ukelele strums
"windy and warm"
as this way comes
the gathering storm
but soon its past
and good to remember
we've enough greens to last
till the end of December
An incomparable scene of serenity before the storm.
This sky is starting to grow on me. A bit large, but I like a loose fit:)
Love the light, the clarity in the photo.
Very nice! It looks like it can be made into a postcard. It certainly qualifies as one!
WOW!!! I just discovered your photography site, and I'm blown away. I also love photography, but don't think I am up to your caliber...do you give lessons? I really like the fact that you don't alter your photos much. I look forward to enjoying your work.
If ever I could paint a picture of clouds sweeping across the sky like this, it would be said it was just a figment of my imagination.
You are blessed if you still do not need the rain. I am very fond of the photos you take of farm land. It brings back so many memories of my grandfather's farm in Virginia. The landscape in Virginia is pretty similar to that of Pennsylvania. We did not see him much, he had a heart attack when I was 8, but he did take me out on the tractor a few times and this looks so much like what I remember of those tractor rides. Thanks.
So awesome! The contrast of the ground and sky is amazing! Great work.
Love the big sky over the flat plain.
Miss seeing your work ! Hope you are well and busy .
very nice website and fantastic pictures!
I'd only be repeating what the others said.... GOOD WORK!! Feeling photo: stormy
WOW!!! I'm voiceless! Wonderful picture!
I find it funny how powerful and destructive Mother Nature can be, but yet we manage to find some type of beauty in it all, much like what we see here in this photo. Thanks for sharing.....
i like the brown stripes...
Please come back! I miss your images... ; )
Hi Kathleen - stopped by tonight for some eye candy - but nothing. Hope things are OK for you - busy I suppose. Just wanted to let you know you are missed.
WE MISS YOU ! Recovering from tunnel hand surgery .
A friend ,
Many miss you , I'm one . HOPEING ALL IS WELL YOUR WAY !
Please don't go! I've used your photos to teach myself to make photographs, and I've recommended your site to people who want to learn to take photos. So many of your images evoke serious photo envy in me.
Pea soup burned
Through Durham archives,
Noting berms of
Light and color,
Helping turn my
Into eemoe therms.
Suspect, like me
You're lost in I.G.
Great landscape, So beautiful
You are greatly missed. I live vicariously in Durham and Williams Townships through your photos. Please, PLEASE, come back!
Missing your photography. I hope you return soon.
I have no problem looking at this image for a year, and glad to see it each time:) Thank you Kathleen, for a good long run!
Good lord, this is beautiful, Kathleen.
Wherever you are, Wishing you a Wonderful Christmas and a Happy Healthy New Year.
Thanks for so many beautiful images of this gorgeous area.
Your fans are begging for more and praying that all is well with you and yours. I keep checking back every now and then and see that there are so many more that are doing the same thing. You've got some good Karma flowing your way. Hoping your New Year is a bountiful one!
Kathleen, hoping everything is good with you. Please leud know if we can expect you back.
Contrast and Composition are realy great.
I miss your photos, too.
Please just one more for the road.
I miss you, too. I check every day -- sort of hold my breath hoping to see a new photo.
Where else can one spend such a beautiful year in early June? Aided perhaps by the storms of the past year, the dramatic impact has increased, and the hopeful horizon blue is all the more inviting. Kind of a prophetic piece, and not totally unexpected from you, Kathleen:)
