Winter – Will it ever end?

This winter has been rough. Snow, bitter cold, ice. All with no end in sight. Here we are, first part of March, and it just keeps coming.

I took this picture on one of the few sunny days that February had to offer. We had gotten several inches of snow, and the sun was enough to melt some, even though the temperature never got about 25 degrees. These icicles formed, and then kept growing. Amazing to see, really. Anyways, here is to hoping the winter will end soon. Hope you enjoy the picture!!!!

Beautiful Reflection

As many of you know, I really love reflections. They are just another way to see the same thing, but from a different angle. This Water Lily was interesting in that it was there, floating amongst all the green leaves and lily pads, just soaking up the sun. The whiteness of the flower really struck me, along with the reflection of it in the water. I hope you all enjoy!

P.S. I started a Facebook page for my photography, so feel free to swing by and LIKE it on Facebook. My posts will update to that page as well.

Contrast in Kansas

Today was quite sunny in Kansas. Then we started getting some clouds rolling in. So, my wife and I jumped into the car and headed out for pictures. The clouds broke up as we were driving past this pasture with a lone tree against the horizon, so I had to take the photo. I thought the B&W made it much more interesting. What do you think?

Another B&W Photo

Today I was revisiting some of my pictures from earlier in the year. Back in October, my wife and I went to Echo Cliff near Dover, KS. This shot was interesting in color, even with a lot of the trees and leaves in shadow, with the light coming through them. However, I thought the B&W of the same image really accentuated the light and the shadows, which drew me into the picture in a way that I hadn’t seen it before. At any rate, I certainly hope you all enjoy it as well!

Backyard Shadows

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I was out in my backyard the other day, and saw this image as the sun was beginning to go down for the evening. The shadows of the trees stretched across the still green grass, ever-changing as the wind moved the tress ever so subtly. The contrasts made for an interesting sight. I hope you all enjoy!
