Descriptions of locations that I have been photographing.

“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…

Some silhouettes and then the encore.

  Last weekend I was out and about in Marshall and Washington Counties with my Dad looking for some new photographic opportunities.  Early in the evening it looked like the sunset was going to be on the plain side of things, but right as the sun was going down some clouds appeared and conditions improved…

Mooned once again

Last Thursday I took advantage of the warm weather (temps in the 70’s!) to go out and photograph the moonrise.  One of the things  I try not to miss each month is a chance to photograph the moon rising.  One to two days before the actual full moon is a good time to do some…

Not yet thawed out.

With the temperatures warming up this weekend I thought it might be a good time to visit some of the waterfalls in the area with the hopes that the snow melt would have them running full.  So I took a road trip down to the Chase County Fishing Lake to see how the falls there…

Sesquicentennial Sunrise

A snow day and a last drive

I had the chance today to drive through a beautiful area of the Flint Hills around Fostoria that I hadn’t explored before.  I was out today with a good friend, Adam, that had scouted the area recently and thought there might be some great views…and he was right!  It was also probably one of Adam’s…

A drive through the country

Last week I took the opportunity to drive up to the north end of Tuttle Creek Lake with a friend.  On the way back home we stopped at the Oldsburg Marsh area to get some photographs of the sunset.  I was able to get down to the shoreline and catch the sunset reflecting off the…

My First Sunset of 2011

The weather was pretty decent today so I decided to go out and photograph my first sunset of 2011.  There were some clouds in the west which was even more incentive to head out with my camera.  I didn’t have time to go very far so I decided on just quick trip to the River…
