Canadian Geese doing a flyby at Riverlands Migratory Bird Sanctuary. On this day the place was full of geese, pelicans, egrets and more! Around St. Louis these geese are pretty common. In fact they may be considered a nuisance. However, these birds are always amazing to watch fly by.

Also, the lake surrounds the town of Minocqua making the boathouses a major source of activity. Photographing the boathouses is best done by boat but a lot of good scenes can be captured from […]
This is part of a long building that looks like an old barracks with a vegetable stand on one end. While our group was shopping for vegetables grown out back I walked around this building to get a bunch of photos of this interesting place. The owners could not figure out what I was doing. […]
This is one of my all time favorite photos from Chaumette Winery. One day I rented one of their villas and captured this sunset photo from the porch. While Chaumette is in the Missouri Ozarks, this is an area of low rolling hills but the height of the property gives a spectacular view. This photo […]
