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 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 […]

The Unimaginable White Pocket

This was a location I have longed to visit.  When I found that I had won the online lottery to hike the wave, I decided that I should try and visit White Pocket, since the entrance onto the road is just South of the Wire Pass Trailhead on House Rock Valley Road as shown below. […]

Edmaier’s Secret

This was the first hike into the Paria Canyon-Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness Area.  It was a location that I really wanted to explore.  Web articles write of different types of sandstone formations.  Some of lattice type formations of crisscrossing thin sheets of sandstone, there are these irregular layering that is visible on slops, and then these […]

Edmaier’s Secret Statue

On this trip to the Utah and Arizona border area, I wanted to explore a location known as Edmaier’s Secret. For me, this area would hopefully offer some uniquely interesting geological formations that intrigued my interest to see and photograph. My map recon showed indicated that there were these lines of stone pushing above the sand. […]
