The Beauty of Great Gorge Captured by Jeremiah Williams

Great Gorge
Great Gorge Valley, Jim Thorpe, PA

This photograph captures the beauty of Great Gorge, a valley deep in the mountains in Jim Thorpe, PA. This picture was taken from the foot bridge on the walking trail. We had really lucked out that day. It was a beautiful outside and the wind seemed to warm our bones with every new attempt.

The town of Jim Thorpe, originally called Mauch Chunk, has a lot of history as well as beautiful sights to see. If you travel down Broadway, you will pass by many historic buildings of the which the architecture has been extremely well preserved. At the bottom of Broadway lies the once very active Central Railroad of New Jersey Station. This station was converted into a beautiful visitors center, and is open most of the week.

If you keep traveling up Broadway you will see the spectacular architecture of Addison Hutton, whom built the Lehigh Coal and Navigation Building sitting at the intersection of Broadway and Lehigh Avenue. If you keep climbing up Broadway you will come to one of my personal favorite places to see any musical performances, The Mauch Chunk Opera House.

Built in 1881, the Mauch Chunk Opera House is a smaller sized venue, which allows the audience to get up-close and personal with the performer of their choice. When you first walk into this ancient structure you immediately feel that you are being transported into a world that only existed one hundred and fifty years ago.

If that’s not enough for you there is also the best Whitewater Rafting and Adventure center appropriately named Jim Thorpe River Adventures. I went here a few years ago during a damn release. Looking back I would call it the most fun I had during the summer of 2010.

You can travel to Jim Thorpe very easily from the Poconos, by traveling west on Interstate 80 to the Blakeslee 115 exit, then follow that road south until you start to see beautiful landscape. Alternatively one can drive on 209 the whole way as well. Then  proceed down all the hills to the bottom most point. Then arrive at one of the most pristine and cutest towns I have seen in Pennsylvania within a reasonable distance from the Pocono mountains.

Photoshop Training 30 dollars per hr

I have been using Photoshop software for over 8 years. I am well versed in all the basics of the software and can teach anyone from beginner to intermediate levels. Learning Photoshop by yourself is impossible. There are so many hidden tricks and things one would never learn, if it were not for a guide. I have had many students from 20 to 60 years of age, and all of them were completely satisfied with my unique approach to teaching Adobe Photoshop. I am currently working towards my Adobe Certification. I truly enjoy imparting my knowledge of Photoshop to help make you a better artist, photographer, photo-editor, web-designer, and all around pre and post production expert.

I will be more than happy to offer a suitable learning environment which includes a computer to work on, or you may bring your own. I can also teach groups at heavily discounted rates. I offer one-on-one training in Adobe Photoshop for 30 dollars an hour.

A picture from the outdoor area of the food-court facing towards Normal st. By Jeremiah Williams

Here is a photo I took of the outdoor Food-Court area. It was such a cloudy and rainy day that everything seemed to blend into the shot so well!!! I am not the best photographer in the Poconos, but I am certainly not the worst either. I hope you like it. Feel free to let me know what you think, leave a comment.
