Stars of the Morning The first thing that caught my eye was composition with the tree

. Then I saw the beautiful fog on the water and finally the starbursts through the trees with the reflection in the water.

Stairway to the Unknown On my my hike through the Wissahickon Valley Park I saw this beautiful staircase along the trail

. In order to capture the full dynamic range of the scene, I had to take a series of bracketed shots. The other challenge was that there was ice all along the different paths.

Pursuing Your Passion Through a Different Lens

PBS39 & TEDxLehighRiver asked me to do a follow up to my previous TEDx talk. This is the write for the event: “Lehigh Valley photographer Frank Smith, who gave a TEDxLehighRiver talk in 2013 called “Looking Through the Lens: Vocation vs Avocation,” will discuss how he found alternative paths to get satisfaction from his work when the pandemic prevented him from exploring the world. His choices offer lessons for all of us.”
I hope you can Join me!
