About the Cover: Sweeney's Beach


One of my coworkers from my radio days, the great Rod Raeger, suggested that winter will go by faster if I find wintertime activities to enjoy.  He meant skiing, but grabbing the camera, in search of winter scenes works too.

I captured this at Sweeney's Beach in Scranton, off Poplar St., and along the Lackawanna River on a recent morning.  It was cold and the snow presented a challenge.  But, it was a new perspective on a place usually associated with summer (except for the Shiver by the River).

Above is the upstream view.  It's a different perspective, and a complaint tomorrow.
