Touch-and-Go

F-16 shows its stuff at the Spirit of St. Louis Air Show. Here the pilot brings the plane down to the runway and then takes off with afterburner blazing. The noise rocks the spectators!

The Beacons’ Boathouse

Northern Wisconsin and Minocqua, Wisconsin in particular is the land of boathouses. This boathouse, on the main part of Lake Minocqua, used to be part of a private estate and later became part of a resort called The Beacons. This and many of the Minocqua boathouses can be viewed from roads and trails around the […]

Gordon Lodge Pier

One of many iconic scenes in Door County. This is a pier at the entrance of North Bay near Baileys Harbor. The a beautiful fall day and sunset light gives a nice effect.

Sail Boat, Fish Creek Harbor

On our way out to Green Bay we passed this moored sail boat in Fish Creek Harbor. While Fall is a quieter time in Door County there were still a few sailboats out in the channel taking advantage of a beautiful day. This photo has been edited by a program to make it more like […]

Fading of the Golden Hour

A special time to take photographs is during the “golden hour,” 30 minutes before and after sunset. […]

Pottery Shop

One of the many home type shops in Door County. This is a nice pottery shop near Ellison Bay centered around an old farm.

For being on the east side of the peninsula, it has wonderful view of the sunset. The evening we had dinner there, there was a continuous orange glow on the horizon.  This is […]

Chaumette

Missouri has a long history of being a first class wine producing state. The St. Louis area has many great wineries near-by and this is one of my favorite. Chaumette Vinyards and Winery is located in scenic Ste. Genevieve county and features great wine, dining and “chalets” for overnight stays. This is the main building […]

Shaw Home Projection

In a unique exhibit at the Missouri Botanical Garden, graphics were projected onto the Henry Shaw home on the grounds. This sight and sound event was quite an experience. Here photography is allowed but no tripods. A group of us were lucky enough to photograph with tripods so I could capture this photo at night.
