This is one of the streams we fish in the Pocono's. We can spend the day working our way upstream taking turns in the runs and pools, one guy spotting for the other. Most times we start early so we are the first on the stream which means fishing trout that haven't been spooked yet.
Its a relaxing way to spend the day.

I was out last year looking at some of the covered bridges in Bucks County. This one has a small park next to it so it was easy setting up my easle right next to the stream . I worked on it from 9:00 till 11:00. By the end of the two hours the lighting had changed so I photographed the details of the scene and painted them in when I got back home. The important part, setting the mood of the scene was done on location. This was a bigger size (11x14) than what I usually use outside. I guess I was feeling brave that day.
