I loved Alaska, hated being on a cruise ship. There were moments. This is one.

Leading Llamas beneath Ausungate
This is one of several of these delightful scarecrows in the Lost Creek Vineyard near Hermann, Missouri.
Row 10 Vineyard
Wine farmers number the rows to help identify where they are or where some work needs to be done.
Working the Mules
Typically, Amish people don't like to be photographed. I was watching this young man working a field with his team. I had my camera around my neck. When he got close I held it up and he nodded. Then, he drove the team around so I could get a better shot!
A Chapel by the Lake
At Big Cedar Resort near Branson, Missouri. Lake Taneycomo is in the distance.
Another Missouri Bottoms Indian Summer
This tree shrouded barn is another of my favorite subjects. On this occasion, there was morning fog that added drama to the scene.
This shed is on a gravel road in McKittrick, Missouri.
Ghosts of Farmers Give Their Blessing
I return to this farm frequently to create new work of these barns and that old red truck.
Flint Hills Forget-me-not
In the Flint Hills region of Kansas, I found this old place next to a Dollar Store. I love the idea that something so idyllic can sit right beside an incursion of modernity.
First Street Dusk
It was a rainy February evening when I went into town to pick up the mail at the post office. As I came into the village, this was the scene that presented it self. Out came the camera.
Into the Abyss
Down a gravel road to the beginning of an ascent.

In the Place of the Old Ones
In the Place of the Old Ones is an image of First House Ruin. It was among the first Anasazi Ruins documented in 1882 by Smithsonian explorer, James Stevenson.
On the Pajarito Plateau
Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument is located on the Pajarito Plateau approximately 40 miles southwest of Santa Fe, near Cochiti Pueblo.
A Glimmer on the Sky City
Acoma Pueblo's Sky City is the longest, continuously occupied place in America.
Ouray in Chinese Brush
This landscape has the feel of a Chinese watercolor for me, therefore, the title.
Canon City Storm
I was driving from the Royal Gorge to Pueblo when I saw this powerful storm on the horizon. I got out of the car to photograph it as the storm moved rapidly across the high desert toward me. By the time I had gotten a few frames, I and my equipment were soaked by the pounding rain.
Pretty Chaco Village
Chaco Canyon's Pueblo Bonito tranlates Pretty Village. Prior to the 1880s, this was the largest building in America.
Ole Buttermilk Sky
I was driving across Kansas on my way to Wichita. I chose the secondary routes, state highways, and county roads, eschewing the monotony of the interstates. We often hear what a grind it is to drive across Kansas and I can tell you, it doesn’t have to be so. I’ve seen herds of elk and gorgeous farm land. There are expansive fields of sunflowers and 'prairie skyscrapers' in the form of magnificent, ivory colored grain elevators. There are several varieties of hawks and vultures. I saw meadowlarks and red-winged blackbirds. There are ducks and geese.
Here, I found tall prairie grasses, and gravel roads among the flint hills all graced with that ole buttermilk sky.
