The Milky Way

Space…..the final frontier…..yada yada yada. Seriously though this past weekend we went to one of our favorite spots for a camping weekend, and I got to try my hand at the shooting the Milky Way Galaxy. The skies were as clear as they could get, and there just happened to be a meteor shower happening this weekend as well. I guess everything sort of aligned to make it pretty easy for my first attempt. Let me know what you think!

Stockton Lake

We like to go camping, and this past weekend we were at Stockton Lake in Southwest Missouri. We had been here last year and I didn’t bring my camera, and you can see why I was disappointed in myself. The spot that we camp has direct lake access and for the most part is secluded. Let me know if you like it!


Rocky Mountain National Park – Sprague Lake

My wife and I just recently celebrated our 1-year anniversary by taking a trip out to Colorado and visiting Rocky Mountain National Park. I know that everyone has seen photographs of the Rocky Mountains, and that most of the time they are impressive on any camera. What I set out to do with this trip was to capture the raw emotion and power that can be evoked by witnessing these fleeting moments. After doing my research I found out that most images of the mountains in this particular National Park, are best captured in the morning hours. During the next few days I will be sharing multiple series of these photographs based on the location at which I shot them. Todays post is on Sprague Lake. As with most lakes in Rocky Mountain National Park, this lake has the ability to give amazing reflection shots, but you have to catch the wind while its away. I was lucky enough to get a calm morning for one of the two days we shot here. Enjoy looking at Sprague Lake through my lens.

Camping

A couple of weeks ago we went camping at John Redomond Resevoir in rural Kansas. For the last few months I have been wanting to start a new series of photography that will primarily focus on the rural landscapes of the midwest. The idea is to showcase the beauty that can exist in the middle of America’s heartland that is so often passed over for more picturesque destinations. Rural landscapes may not have the most prominent landscapes, but what makes them beautiful can be traced directly to how they absorb natural light as well as the simplicity of the composition. I hope to get out at least a few more times before the end of summer, but for now enjoy the first installment.
