This book is a compilation of images taken in Dauphin County, Pennsylvania and its neighboring counties. Many of the photos in this collection were taken within ten miles of the author's home, in beautiful Powell's Valley, which may be seen from the ridgeline where the Appalachian Trail crosses the central part of Pennsylvania. Others are taken around Harrisburg, or in neighboring counties.
A full preview of all the images included in this collection - including cover art and bios, may be viewed here: http://flickr.com/photos/arkansawyer/sets/72157605348948079/show/
These photos are a window into my world - some of the many things which interest me. I have tried to capture some of the "feel" of life in Pennsylvania brings. The volume is broken into seven sections which depict much of the life of Central Pennsylvania.
As an added bonus, I have included a handful of oil paintings by my friend Karen Oudeman, of Gouda, in The Netherlands, which were inspired by the photos that accompany them.
