Sunfish Pond - Appalachian Trail

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 16 May 2012 in Landscape & Rural.

A remnant of the last Glacial Age, this pond lies along the Appalachian Trail network in the Deleware Water Gap National Recreation Area which lies along the border between Northeastern Pennsylvania and Northwestern New Jersey. The lake is named for a perch-like fish that exists in these waters due to the particular combination of water temperature and bio-characteristics. Incidentally, this was captured in late March before the trees had "leafed out."

- " We do not move forward from a middle opinion, which is undemocratic but mediocratic.
We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)

- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
- Henri Cartier-Bresson.

::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
; Earth Wind and Fire
