Photos from 2016

Each January since 2012 I’ve been putting together a slide show of my photos from the previous year. This has been an interesting experience for me and a fun way to review my year. It has also helped me remember all the experiences I was fortunate to have to be grateful for them.

I always do most of my photography “close to home” in and around Kansas. This year for a variety of personal reasons most of my photography was even closer to home and mostly in the Flint Hills and lakes around Manhattan. I did make one trip to the Gyp Hills, a couple of trips to the Teter Rock area and one trip to the Maxwell Wildlife Refuge.

The first photo in the video was made on January 3rd, 2016 and the last on December 28th, 2016.

I’ve already starting putting together a list of places I want to photograph in 2017 and new things I want to learn and try out. I’m looking forward to sharing the journey through the new year.

Caught on the Edge – A quiet Fall moment for the October print sale

Caught on the Edge
Caught on the Edge

 

This Fall has been a subdued one for me for several reasons. Accordingly, the photo “Caught on the Edge” seemed to be a good one for my October (actually October-November) print of the month sale. I made this photo at a small cascade on Wildcat Creek where it flows around Wildcat Park. I used a telephoto lens to isolate a small area where some fall leaves had gotten caught at the edge of one of the small drops in the stone. To me, this photo captures a quiet moment of Fall-something I could always use more of. I hope it brings that feeling to its viewers.

This print sale will run until the afternoon of November 3rd and is for a 16×20″ Canvas Gallery Wrap for $99 – a little over 50% off the regular price. The canvas can be order at this link.
