Susquehanna, October

Susquehanna River, central Pennsylvania, early October: Fall takes its time arriving, the leaves take their time turning and the river keeps flowing.

Another of the nightly summer spectacles on the mighty Susquehanna River, Speeceville, PA.

It’s been a busy summer, and I’m just catching up. More to come.

Millersburg, PA

Millersburg, PA, in September. One of those great Susquehanna River towns and home of the last known all-wooden double stern-wheel ferry in America, or so the sign says. Twenty-five miles upriver from Harrisburg.

Susquehanna Summer: Up

64_5-2W

A more complete gallery of black and white images from my trip down the Susquehanna River is finally up on the site: Link to it here.

All of these are from my roughly 440-mile trek down the Susquehanna on foot and by canoe from its origin in Otsego Lake in Cooperstown, NY, a couple of blocks from the Baseball Hall of Fame, to its end in the Chesapeake Bay at Havre de Grace, MD. I grew up next to the river, in central Pennsylvania, and I knew what was out there — in it, on it, and along its banks. I originally printed all these  in a traditional darkroom, but this time I had the 35-mm Kodak Tri-X negatives scanned by Neil Dixon at Yankee Imaging in Waterbury, VT. I did the digital darkroom work in PhotoShop. There are about 60 photos in the gallery, so it will take about five minutes to see them all, but I hope you will find it worth the time. You can click through them or they will run as a five-minute slide show on their own. The next step will be to finally get them collected in a book.

Don’t forget to link to the gallery here, and please feel free to Facebook the link or pass it around otherwise to anybody.ColumWader16TiogaPk16A2WPortDeposit2
