Baby, It’s Cold Outside!




Brrrrrrrr!!! Another cold day in the Heartland! Got up this morning, with much hesitation, with the outside temperatures at -3F. That reminded me of one of my trips to Alaska’s “Valley of Eagles”, located outside Haines, Alaska. So I decided it was very appropriate to go back and post a few of my favorite images […]

Valley of the Eagles




Today’s post features another Alaska image, one captured along the Chilkat River Valley near Haines, Alaska. In this protected region, also known as “The Valley of the Eagles”, warm thermals keep the Chilkat River open well into November and a late salmon run attracts thousands of bald eagles along a 2.5 mile stretch. This image […]

Midnight Sun




Today’s post features an image I captured in Little Tutka Bay, Alaska, a few years ago. While lodged in a cabin in Little Tutka Bay, this “sunset” was captured just a short while before midnight. Good example of Alaska’s “Midnight Sun”: Photographic Equipment Used: Canon 1D Mark 2 body Canon 28-135mm f/4.5-f/5.6 IS lens, shot […]

A Chilling Encounter, Part 3




This is the third, and final post featuring images captured this past Monday evening as 2018’s first Super Moon rose above a farm grain silo that is near my rural Missouri home. As I drove to this location, clouds were really beginning to flow across the sky and the moon. Although I did not capture […]

A Chilling Encounter, Part 2




In Part 2 of my “A Chilling Encounter” series, I’m highlighting another image I captured on New Year’s Day of the year’s first Super Moon. In this post, I feature a merged image of a couple of images I captured as the moon rose over Cornerstone Community Church (my church home) in Harrisonville, Missouri. With […]

A Chilling Encounter, Part 1




Today’s post contains images shot last night in bone-chilling (7F) temperatures, near my rural Missouri home. With the year’s first Super Moon rising at sunset, I headed out to one of my favorite, nearby areas … Amarugia Conservation Area. I set up my equipment at the edge of the frozen lake and pointed it towards […]

When it Rains, it Showers!




Over the weekend I reviewed and edited the many images I captured last Wednesday night/Thurday morning of the spectacular Geminids meteor shower. I processed 8 images a bit differently than normal, rotating each image (to compensate for the earth’s rotation over time) to show the approximate travel of each individual meteor, from it’s radiant point […]

Fun Friday: Night of Astrology




I hope you had a chance to view the recent Geminids meteor shower (being a Gemini, I was particularly interested in photographing this popular meteor shower), which was outstanding where I live. It was a very long Wednesday for me, but I got to watch and photograph the very best meteor shower I’ve ever seen!! […]

Milky Way Over Roseman




Today’s post concludes my recent photo trip to Madison County, Iowa to photograph the covered bridges in fall colors and at night (and with playing with my new drone!). Today’s two images were captured during my last night in Madison County. Although the Milky Way’s galactic core are not nearly as visible or impressive as […]
