Big Red & Little Moo

Big Red and Little Moo

Two ornery longhorns in Wimberly, TX. They are rather friendly but if the lower or shake their heads at you, you better look out!

Roaring River State Park


Near Eagle Rock, MO there is a place called Roaring River State park where they have this amazing spring that comes out of a cave. The state stocks the spring area with rather large breeder trout and every time I visit I wish I could dangle a hook in there with a nice juicy worm!

Yellowstone Storm


Just a small afternoon storm in Yellowstone National Park about halfway between the North Entrance and Old Faithful. The way the rain is falling from the cloud it sort of looks like a volcano.

Lonely Sunset


Another lonely sunset at Ward Nail Park in Lowell, AR.

Get Your Kicks on Route 66


This is an old barn on Route 66 Northeast of Tulsa, OK. It fell down in a storm just a few weeks after this shot was taken.

Beartooth Pass


One of our favorite places, Beartooth Pass, on the border of Wyoming and Montana just north of Yellowstone Park.

Mt. Bierstadt

Mt Bierstadt

My Son, Daughter and I drove out to Colorado on 8-6-2014 to climb a 14er, Mt. Bierstadt. On the 7th, we showed up at the trailhead at 6:30am to start our hike and about 30 minutes into our trek we got to watch this amazing sunrise. I only had my iPhone with me so this shot is an HDR shot that was done using the app Pro HDR , it’s the best app I’ve found for shooting HDR on a phone.

Big Fat Raindrops


Out at the big dam end of Beaver Lake going for the sunset when the rain cut loose, I thought it had a nice effect on the water so I risked getting the gear a little damp for this shot.

House of God


This old church was a stately building in its day, it was recently torn down along with the entire town of Picher, OK. This place has a sad history of busted mining booms and several tornadoes. The water tables were all poisoned with lead and zinc which wasn’t discovered until many of the children in town started having health issues. It is now one of the largest superfund sites in the United States and the federal government has bought everything up and leveled the town. Before they did it was a really creepy place to shoot, not only abandoned but due to all the mine tailings it kind of felt like shooting on the moon.


Screaming Lotus


This is a Lotus Elise at Road Atlanta that was patiently waiting for its driver so that it could compete in the Petit LeMans race. It ended up crashing out of competition but not before it gave it a worthy shot!
