Two years ago today we had a total eclipse of the sun in the St. Louis area. Therefore I thought it might be a good time to post this photo again. This was taken in Desoto, Missouri where we had a full two minutes and 30 seconds of time to figure out how to photograph […]

From Missouri Botanical Garden’s Lantern Festival. One of the many amazing events hosted by the Garden.
No, this tree is not on fire! Even though it looks like it is about to explode, this is part of the laser light show projection. Watching this you will see the “fire” engulf the tree and then other patterns will appear and suddenly vanish. In the end, it is just the tree standing there […]

The hounds spent two and a half hours in the fields before returning to the farmhouse for an early dinner before driving back to […]

The event usually requires 12 to 18 Basset Hounds to track the varmints. Since the hounds are off leash a group of people including […]
