Angel of Death Spire Points to the Henry Mountains

The Angel of Death spire, which is often overlooked by travelers that walk further North to the Long Don Sliver (Lone Spire) for their popularity seeking Instagram image. This spire has always been a desired shot. On my third visit to this site while I was in the area shooting other pictures, I found nice clouds passing overhead as the sun rising in the East.

Kansas City Temple Sunset

This is a return visit photo.  I was here the previous evening to capture the supermoon.  I had elected to come back to see if I could get some other images.  While I was waiting for the moon to come up, I took several photographs as the sun was setting.  I remembered how nice this […]

St Joseph American National Bank Building

This was a location that I had wanted to return to take this photo.  This building is adjacent to the popular Felix Jazz Mural that I photographed in March 2022.  That photo is my second most viewed photo on Flickr.  I tried to photograph this when I was there but failed.  This is a hard […]

Kansas City Temple Supermoon

This is a location that I have photographed before.  This temple and others, in my view, offer pleasing architecture with excellent lighting and landscaping that is a big plus to the photographer.  This has been a temple that I have wanted to try and photograph with the moon behind the Angel Moroni.  Little did I […]

Sturgeon Supermoon Over Kansas City

Over the years this has been one of my more frequent shooting locations.  I like the reflection of city lights and the moon on the Missouri River.  Because Kaw Point is at the confluence of the Kansas and Missouri Rivers the river banks are extra wide allowing a greater exposure of the cityscape as it rests […]

Wave Entrance Reflection

An early morning arrival at the wave offers an excellent moment that is often unencumbered by other hikers to capture a reflection of the Southwestern mound in the draw between two mounds.

Wave Selfie

For years I wanted to visit the wave.  This of course is a popular spot where individuals come to capture a selfie.  So here is my selfie.   The purpose of taking this selfie was to celebrate to family and friends that after my long wait to get a permit and after getting blocked from […]

The Second Wave

A visit to the Wave should also entail a short walk up the ridge line and over to an area just to the South less than a quarter mile to the Second Wave, which is featured here.  The Wave info website suggests that this location is best shot late in the day, preferably during the […]

Sunset Stepping to the White Pocket Citadel

As evening appeared, White Pocket began the nightly tonal transition from bright sunlight through golden and blue light to nighttime.  This image was taken at that special transition of refracted light from the last remaining sunset bouncing off of Altocumulus mid-level clouds that caused the slight reddish tone of the sand on the right of […]

Edmaier’s Secret Turret

I had packet up my camera gear and was heading out of Edmaier’s Secret after finding fresh mountain lion tracks in the smoothed wet sand, when I came across this formation.  Since my whole purpose of this visit was to recon the area for a future shooting visit, tune up my shooting skills for the upcoming […]
