More Waterfalls and slow shutterspeeds

I recently had the opportunity to take a “shooting trip” through the Flint Hills with good friend and fellow photographer Wayne Rhodus (check out Wayne’s photographs at http://www.rhodusphotography.com/).  We decided to make a bit of ‘waterfall’ circuit and the first stop we made was at the Geary State Fishing Lake to photograph the waterfall there. …

Waterfall season and bad habits

  Upper Idlewild Falls Judging by today’s temperatures you might not guess that spring is getting closer.  The calendar says it is though, so I’m hopeful that it will actually arrive at some point.  Spring means all sorts of good things like warmer temperatures, stuff turning green, flowers blooming, and of course spring rains.  Spring…

“You might as well go see”

  Last night we had some really thick fog move in and I had plans of getting up early this morning with the hopes of finding the countryside covered in hoarfrost.  Turns out it was too warm last night so nothing really froze (probably a good thing, slick roads aren’t really that good of a…

Sesquicentennial Sunrise

Today is Kansas Day and marks 150 years of statehood, which makes this our Sesquicentennial, which I’m glad I only have to type and not pronounce.  Since this was a special day for Kansas, I decided to get up this morning and photograph sunrise.   Amazingly, I managed to wake up before sunrise but almost didn’t…

The show I’m fortunate to be part of at the Basehor Library is now on the walls! I thought I would post the photos that are on display there. If you are in the area, please stop by and check out the display (the show will run through March 5th).  I’m very lucky to be…
