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 […]

Sunset on the Missouri

For those that live in the St. Louis Metropolitan area, they are familiar with Highway 40 (64) where it crosses the Missouri River near Chesterfield’s Gumbo Flats. Once while crossing the bridge I looked to the west and noticed this spectacular sunset. This is major metropolitan highway with no way to stop to take a […]

Sunset over Strathalbyn

Another beautiful fall sunset in the Midwest. This well and the stables beyond are part of an old club in St. Charles County. The property is along the Missouri River and served as a family farm in this rural section of Weldon Spring before World War II and before the bridge across the Missouri River […]

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 […]

Gateway Arch

St. Louis’ Gateway Arch is a 630-foot monument in St. Louis, Missouri. Clad in stainless steel and built in the form of a weighted catenary arch, it is the world’s tallest arch, the tallest man-made monument in the Western Hemisphere, and Missouri’s tallest accessible building. The Arch gives St. Louis a stunning cityscape and is something […]

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 […]

Subtle tones

I really liked the soft tones of some photos I have seen and I have been looking for ways to accomplish the effect. What I found was that you really have to take these photos during the “Golden Hour.” That is, take your photos about 10 minutes before sunrise/sunset to 10 minutes after. The light […]
