A Study in Contrast

A few weeks ago I was out in Western Kansas on a trip. Just south of Quinter, Kansas, is a chalk formation called “Castle Rock”. All around it are these formations, which made for an interesting view with the clouds in the sky. I immediately thought of Black and White for this photo, because it really looked post-apocalyptic to me. The contrast was amazing, and with the clouds, it really has a sinister feel to it. Each shadow really stands out, giving great texture to the formations. Hope you all enjoy this photo!

100th Post – Sunflower Before the Storm

So this is my 100th post. Hard to believe it for me, but it’s been an amazing journey so far. Can’t wait to see what the next 100 posts will be like.

The past few days I was out in western Kansas (Liberal, to be exact). There were some amazing storms that rolled through the area, and I got some great photos. Good to have to future reference, of course. This one I thought would be fitting, since my first photo post on my blog was a Sunflower field. This lone sunflower looked amazing against the building storm, rain, and sunset. I hope you all enjoy!

Big Spring Reflection

Scott County State Lake is a beautiful area of Western Kansas. Trees, old Pueblo ruins, springs, trees, and great scenery are all around. Big Spring is one of the springs that feed the main lake, giving a clean look and some great contrasts for photos. This tree’s reflection really caught my eye, along with the bright blue sky and the different colors of grass that was growing around. Hope you all enjoy!
