Wildlife snaps on display at Dietrich Theater

There are no shortages of stunning images when it comes to Joan and Jim Borden photography.

Together, the duo avidly pursued their love by clicking the natural world in the northeastern part of the United States and Canada, that includes Maine, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire and Vermont, and now their images are on display till the end of March at Dietrich Theater, Tunkhannock.

When questioned regarding their most loved photographic shoot, both of them agreed that clicking the snap of moose in Maine has been very exciting. Going remote streams by canoe and being able to get very close to moose was a real highlight of their photographic raids.

Regionally, a favorite spot of theirs is Lake Carey in winter before the ice melts, a habitat rich with sightings of eagles, owls and small birds.

The exhibit is open to public for free when movies are shows. To know more, you can call at - 570-996-1500.
