Sunrise From Cloud Level




On my last day of camping at Mount Evans, I drove to the summit of the mountain (quite daunting in the dark!) to capture a sunrise from the summit. The view from this vantage point was quite impressive, and the layers of clouds really helped to make this a wonderful sight as the sun rose […]

And the Beauty Just Won’t Stop




Today’s post comes from the Upper Goliath Wilderness Area, along the Mount Evan’s Highway in the Colorado Rockies. My last sunrise I posted was a beauty (“Sunrise Over Upper Goliath”), but while reviewing the images later in the day (on the back of my camera), I wished I would have photographed the sunrise with a […]

Sunrise Over Upper Goliath




Another beautiful sunrise over the Colorado Rockies. On an early morning drive up the Mount Evans Highway, I pulled to the side of the road, along the Upper Goliath Wilderness Area, and hiked a short distance to capture the sunrise. Finding an interesting, small bristle-cone pine tree as foreground interest, I set up the tripod […]

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 […]

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 […]

First Morning on the Platte River




I’m a little behind with posting from the Platte River, but been very busy capturing images of the Sandhill Cranes and some awesome sunrises/sunsets. Today I’m taking a “short work day” so I can get caught up and try to get a few posts prepared ahead of time, for the next few days. I’m sure […]

Sunrise Over the Mississippi




During my “Wintering Bald Eagles” photo workshop, we captured this awesome sunrise one morning as we stood along the Mississippi River, waiting for the Bald Eagles to fly in for fishing. Unfortunately, only one bald eagle flew across the brilliant sky, but we did have a few Canada Geese make the flyby: Photographic Equipment Used: […]

In A Fog




This interesting sunrise, captured through a heavy fog over Amarugia Creek in Amarugia Highlands CA in west-central Missouri, is from a few years ago in late fall: One of the things I like about this image is it’s simplicity. Photographic Equipment Used: Canon 1D Mark 2 body Canon EF 100mm-400mm, f/4.5-f/5.6 IS lens, shot at […]

Raw Beauty on the Inside Passage




Today’s post comes from November 2008, on a photo trip to the Chilkat River Valley to photograph Bald Eagles. To get to the area, I flew into Juneau, Alaska and then took the Alaska Marine Highway (the state ferry system) to Haines. The ferry ride was an early morning ride that started out about 6:00am […]
