Elephant Rocks

Elephant Rocks State Park can be found outside of Ironton, MO in the Ozarks. This outcropping of pink granite was once part of a quarry and is now a park where you can wander around the park and see the ancient worn boulders. The outcropping raises above the treetops providing a spectacular view.

Grand Basin

This photo takes you back over 115 years in time. Forest Park’s Grand Basin served as the center of the 1904 World’s Fair. This body of water was surrounded by “Grand Palaces” that featured: Electricity and Machinery; Industry and Manufacturing; Transportation; Mining; and Liberal Arts. Beyond that is the famous Art Hill. Art Hill is […]

Old Barn

One of many old barns in Door County. For photographers, there are great lighthouse, seaside and roadside attractions to photograph. The interior of Door County is dotted with scenic farms that make great subjects. This old barn is in front of a sunflower field which makes it more interesting. If you are in the area […]

Waterfall

Golden Hour on Lake Michigan

Sunrise on North Bay near Baileys Harbor in Door County, Wisconsin. This view always has spectacular colors but you have to get up early to see them. However, watching the full moon come over the horizon happens in early evening, a much better time.

Chaumette Villas

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 […]

International World War I Memorial

This is the opposite view of the previous photo. The memorial faces Kansas City’s Union Station and is on a steep hill so as you  walk towards the memorial you can turn around for a spectacular view of the KC skyline. This is a hand held, three shot photo taken while walking up the hill. […]
