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 […]

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.

On this Veteran’s Day, remembering those who lost their lives in the service of our armed services. This is Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery, an American military cemetery located in St. Louis County, Missouri, just on the banks of the Mississippi River. The cemetery was established after the American Civil War in an attempt to put […]

Rockers

This is a favorite photo of mine from Big Cedar Lodge. This would have been just as the sun was setting over Table Rock Lake and this is the upper floor of Falls Lodge. This is a great place to visit with an incredible amount of things to do. Or you could just watch the […]
