Below the Falls

On one of my many recent hikes in Glacier NP (Montana), I hiked to Virginia Falls. Just a very short distance below the falls, was this peaceful scene, with a single Aster wildflower plant gently blowing in the light breeze, in front of some cascades: This is a focus-stacked image, combining two separate images. One […]

Ox-Eye Daisies

Today’s post features some prairie wildflowers from my trip Tuesday to Linden’s Prairie in southern Missouri. Ox-Eye daisies always catch my eye whenever I run across them on the prairie. At Linden’s Prairie, there were multiple, nice masses of these little beauties. Here are a few of my favorite ones: This next image is another […]

Noah Brown’s Prairie, Part 1

“Catch up” time! I was unable to prepare a blog post over the past couple of days, due to several activities. On Monday, I traveled to St. Joseph, MO for a private, one day consultation and yesterday I spent the day in southwest Missouri, photographing wildflowers on several Missouri prairies (even finding some orchids!). In […]

Do the Dew!

Back from Des Moines. It was a mixed bag. Spent a day at the Neil Smith NWR, with the highlight of capturing images of some Ebony Jewel-Wing Damselflies … a blog post with some images is forthcoming. Then, wonderful weather! After a rather warm day on Thursday, a cold front passed overnight and Friday thru […]

Sunrise On Snowball Hill

(After a short hiatus last week, I’m now back at the computer. It was a stressful week as my air conditioner went totally out on Tuesday evening and had to be replaced. Replacement occurred Friday afternoon, after a week of hot and humid weather, with comfort index reaching as high as 105F! And to top […]

Be Aware of Your Surroundings

After photographing the barn and wildflowers in my previous post, I picked up my tripod and equipment and prepared to move to another location. At that moment, I realized I had another image in front of me … snow-covered Mt. Hood was clearly visible to the left and behind the wildflowers I had been photographing. […]

Beautiful Blue Camas

Today’s post features a beautiful blue wildflower growing in the Columbia River Gorge area of Oregon, a blue Camas (species unidentified) wildflower. Early one morning, I crossed the Columbia River to photograph at Catherine’s Creek Nature Area, a wonderful little area on the Washington state side of the river. One of the striking wildflowers at […]

Teeny, Tiny Dynamo

Captured last Thursday, this very small, white wildflower was found on a woodland near my rural Missouri home. I’m not sure what the identification is … so far, I haven’t found any images that compare favorably with it. If you might know what this little beauty is, I’d appreciate your assistance! The tiny flowers are […]

Wheel of Fortune

Last Thursday morning, I was conducting a “workshop shorty” with a student when I came upon this wonderful-looking Blue-eyed Mary wildflower. What caught my eye on this particular flower was the wonderful, “wheel/spoke” composition the flower was exhibiting. Positioning my tripod above the flower, so that I would be shooting straight down, I moved in […]

It’s All In the Name

A couple of days ago, I was leaving the woodland where I had been photographing wildflowers, when I ran across some Spring Beauty wildflowers, some of the small wildflowers that typically are very early bloomers. With just a few Spring Beauties blooming, and my need to move on to some errands that needed to be […]
