Miss Fleur De Lis

Katie Moeller, Miss Fleur De Lis, at the 2017 VP Parade. The VP Parade (America’s Birthday Parade) is one of the premier events in the United States. This was the 135 year of this parade and was televised in over 60 cities.

Miss Moeller was on of about 10 Miss America Pageant members who participated.  Last year I featured Miss River City in the this parade.

Daffodils in early Spring

More Springtime Daffodils. This time from St. Louis’ Forest Park. As I have stated before, this is one of America’s largest and most beautiful urban parks. Be sure to click on the links to see more photos of the park if you have not been there before!

Here is a scene of the Park’s suspension bridge with the St. Louis Art Museum in the background. This bridge makes an interesting subject for photographers (click here for another view).

Spring in the Garden

In an urban area in St. Louis, the Missouri Botanical Garden offers beautiful floral settings, interesting gardens and fantastic landscapes. Here are some Redbud trees with the Climatron in the background.

Waiting for Santa

One more night at the Garden Glow to get some shots missed on my first trip. This is a scene you will take a little effort to find.

This is a hand held shot taken at a High ISO of 2000 at 50mm, f3.2.
