Into the Deep Freeze




Today’s post contains a few more ice-covered plants in my rural Missouri landscape: Several years ago, I planted quite a few Fragrant Sumac shrubs, a plant that a lot of the wildlife love. As with many other plants, our warm winter has caused buds to appear on these plants: One of the most interesting plants […]

Cold Hardy Succulent




Thank Goodness!!! When I was wandering around my rural landscape last weekend, I found some interesting views of a succulent that we have been growing for several years in our succulent garden. I’ve always loved this plant. It is about 3-feet tall and has such character. But when I found it covered in ice, it […]

A Winter Wonderland




Over the weekend, we were square in the middle of a large ice storm that struck the Midwest. On Sunday morning, I looked out on the back deck and saw some of the ice-covered landscape that had resulted from an overnight icing. Here are a few images I captured from/around my back deck: On the […]

Faves of 4Q 2016




  Fourth quarter began as usual, with foliage showing the signs of fall, such as this Slender Bush Clover found on Snowball Hill Prairie: Not far from the clover, I found 3 Rough Blazing Stars: And I have to include one of my favorite finds at a local hardware store, some fun-loving Mums (which 2 […]

Faves of 3Q 2016




Third Quarter 2016 was photographically slow starting out. My wife had just passed and I was busy taking care of her estate. And at that time, my desire to get out and photograph was at a new, all-time low. But after a lot of soul searching, I knew I had to return to what was […]

Pssst … Did You Hear ….?




While shooting in Arches NP, just a few miles into the park stands an interesting rock formation called “Three Gossips”. As most of the arches I was photographing were further into the park, I must have passed these “gossipers” fifty times! And each time, I would always wonder what they were talking about! Especially at […]

Sand Dune Arch




On my last morning in Arches National Park (Utah), I tried to find as many arches as I could, that I hadn’t seen or photographed during my night shoots there. One of those was Sand Dune Arch. Following a 1/4-mile trail, I ended up walking in heavy sand … kinda reminded me of walking the […]

Geminids Come to Town




Last Tuesday evening, I made an attempt to capture the Geminids meteor shower at a rural farm very close to my rural Missouri home. The decision to try photographing the Geminids was a last-minute decision, as the forecast had been for partly cloudy skies. But late in the afternoon, the skies were still clear and […]

Double Your Fun!




On my last night in Arches National Park, I visited Double Arches for some night photography. Double Arch is so named as there are two arches that conjoin each other. It really is a spectacular sight at night. On this evening, the sky began as a clear, cloudless sky. But about an hour or so […]

Window Into the Night Sky




After photographing the Turret Arch (“Turret Arch at Night”), I walked about 300 feet to the North Window, where I set up my tripod and camera and began capturing 6 x 8-minute exposures of the northern sky as viewed from the window. Later, in Photoshop, I blended the 6 images together to get this star […]
