Forest Park Bridge

If you explore around Forest Park in St. Louis you will find this scenic suspension bridge just east of the Grand Basin. This was a very cold morning after a light snow in St. Louis. The fresh snow made for some great photographs..  

Nathan Frank Bandstand

It snowed last night so I thought I would go to Forest Park this morning to take a few photos. The Nathan Frank Bandstand in front of the Municipal Opera is always a good subject and this morning it looked great! This is a three shot HDR photo edited in Lightroom and Aurora. Not much […]

Loop Trolley

An eclectic entrepreneur in my home town of University City (part of St. Louis, MO), thought it would be a great idea to run a trolley up and down our downtown area. 50 million dollars (of taxpayer money) later they have two of these running. The “Loop Trolleys” are now running, taking us back to […]

New Kiener Plaza

The new Kiener Plaza opens this space while giving the nice view of the Old Courthouse and Arch. It was pretty cold this day so there were not many people in the new area. This view gives a nice perspective of the leading lines of the pavement directing the view to the Arch.

Reflecting pool

The St. Louis Arch grounds have been totally redesigned with an expansion of the underground museum and some enhanced vistas. This is one of two reflecting pools which seem to be as they were in the past. The Arch and its grounds are interesting subjects for photographers of all skills.

New Kiener Plaza

A wide lens allows you to get up close to the fountain while including the buildings and arch. Also this photo was taken well after sunset giving […]
