Pennsylvania’s Tapestry

Scenes From the Air

Pennsylvania's Tapestry CoverPENNSYLVANIA’S dramatically varied topography as well as its contour and strip farming combine to make extraordinary scenes from the air.

Furthermore, the classic ridge and valley formations of the mid-state, studied the world over by geologists, form extremely pleasing subjects for the camera’s canvas.

Blair Seitz has captured these remarkable features with extreme care and expertise in this first and only volume of color aerial photographs of his native state, Pennsylvania.

See these striking physical features of Pennsylvania in beautiful light and sharp relief:

  • Delaware Water Gap
  • Pocono’s Lake Wallenpaupack
  • Pine Creek Gorge
  • Susquehanna River, Hyner
  • Berks County Farms
  • Youghiogheny River Rapids
  • Raystown Lake, Juniata River Valley
  • Presque Isle State Park

Blair’s inspiring photographs are given added meaning by the fact-filled geological explanations in the text by Ruth Hoover Seitz. Formation of extraordinary land features over millions of years are interpreted by Ruth, quoting one of the state’s leading geologists.

For fifteen years Ruth and Blair have combined their acclaimed talents in exploration and interpretation of the history and attractions that make Pennsylvanians proud of the Keystone State.
