Summer Afternoon along the Yellow Breeches
While the dappled late afternoon sunshine on this late summer day
along the Yellow Breeches Creek suggested many a colorful motif,
there was something about the serenity of this setting that
beckoned the camera with the black and white film.
This inviting spot along the Yellow Breeches Creek is on the grounds
of the Allenberry Resort in Boiling Springs, Pennsylvania.
This tributary of the Susquehanna River in south-central Pennsylvania is fed from a limestone source and can, in times of heavy rainfall, become off-color. During the Revolutionary War, the British troops found this out, first-hand. Story has it that when the Redcoats washed their white breeches in these waters, the garments came out distinctly yellow!
The creek is a favorite spot for fly fishing.
The scene was shot on Agfa APX-25 film through a Nikkor 24mm f/2.8 lens on a Nikon FA.
