Sunset at the Hardy

There is always something interesting to find in Door County. This is the Hardy Gallery an art gallery on Eagle Bay located in an old boathouse displaying various types of art. To make things more interesting, the building is covered with graffiti (mostly peoples names). After viewing art, you can walk around the building and […]

Marina

Sunset on Green Bay creates perfectly cylindrical lens flare. The weather in Door County has been particularly rainy making photography a little hit or miss. Here the sun suddenly peaked out of the clouds to give a stunning sunset.

Memorial

Just South of Downtown Kansas City, you will find the National World War I Memorial. This is on a high hill overlooking Downtown Kansas City and their Union Station. You cannot tell from this photo but this is a steep incline leading from the station up to the memorial. See the previous photo for the […]

Sunset on Lake Minocqua

The iconic boathouses of Lake Minocqua create the character of the area. The lake is well known for its sport fishing. 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 […]

Sunset at Chaumette

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 […]

7,000 Flags

7,000 flags flying over Art Hill in St. Louis; Forest Park. This is one of several flag memorials in front of the the Art Museum displayed over the past few years. These displays have memorialized those that have fallen during terror attacks or fighting terrorists.

View from Devil’s Pool

This is a view from the deck of Devil’s Pool restaurant at Big Cedar Lodge. Big Cedar is such an interesting place that you could not run out of things to photograph. It is an old estate with beautiful buildings and interesting architecture, restaurants, golf courses and more!

Chalet 21

One of Missouri’s great wineries is Chaumette in St. Genevieve. On the grounds they have cabins or “Chalets” where you can spend the night. When we go there we like Chalet 21 where you can sit out on the deck and watch the sunset or sunrise in addition to a stunning view of the area. […]

Christmas time at Kirkwood Station

The Kirkwood station is a busy place with families traveling to meet with friends and family for the holidays. This photo was something of a surprise. When this was taken, the sun was down and it was dark outside. Three exposures were taken, one under exposed, one over exposed and one at standard exposure. These […]

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. […]
