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 […]

Color on the Platte River




This post is being re-published from the spring of 2012. I am currently involved with a unique photography project that will take me 1-2 weeks. During this time, I will likely be on social media very little. I have set up a few posts to “self-publish” to my website blog; if/when time allows, I will […]

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 […]

“Little New York”




Today’s post is the first of two posts that feature Park Avenue, a very interesting area in Arches NP (Utah). Park Avenue is so-named because of it’s towering walls that surround a smooth rock canyon bottom, simulating the skyline in New York City. Arriving as the sun began to set in the western sky, the […]

Enter Devil’s Garden




In today’s post, I’m featuring some images captured in the Devil’s Garden area of Arches NP. Arriving at sunset, we were greeted with a wonderful landscape: After a brief stop to capture the amazing sight, we headed on into the Garden as the light faded and nighttime greeted us. After a short hike (0.5 mile), […]

Dead Horse Point




Just finished an exciting photography project in Utah … photographing some of the magnificent rock structures in Arches National Park, at night. And not just the arches … my trip there coincided with the recent, extra-large, “super moon”, as well as during the Leonids meteor shower. Over the next few posts, I’ll feature some of […]

A Little Rough Around the Edges




Today’s post comes from one of my fall trips to Snowball Hill Prairie in rural Cass County, Missouri. At the top of the hill, a few Rough Blazing Star (Liatris aspera) wildflowers were growing when I visited. Here are a few of my favorite images: And a single Rough Blazing Star composed itself in the […]

What A Way to Wake Up!




Yesterday morning I made a quick trip out to Snowball Hill Prairie, about 20 minutes from my rural Missouri home. This past summer, I donated a one-half day photo workshop for a small group of participants at Snowball Hill Prairie, for the Missouri Prairie Foundation’s (MPF) silent auction to raise money to continue efforts to […]

Beginning of a Midwest Storm




A couple of weeks ago, I went out to photograph the conjunction of the moon and Jupiter (the planet Jupiter was in “close” proximity with the moon).  The 2 heavenly bodies were first observable just before sunset. As I was setting up to photograph them, clouds began to roll into the area from the northwest, […]
