Old School… Church Cemetery

Taken last July cemetery shots from a rural German cemetery near a town called Hamburg.  This is from an era when a headstone meant something.

That old man river at times shows some gumption.

July 2013 -  After late spring, heavy rains in late June, the Mississippi was roaring at full spring meltdown levels.  No old man river this day.

Lowry Ave. Bridge Minneapolis

It’s nice when I have several of my favorite themes that come together in a photo shoot.  Lowry St. Bridge is an expensive but esthetically new bridge over the Mississippi River north of Downtown Minneapolis.  So my love of abstract lines, bridges,reflections and sun blocked back lit shots had a field day last July.  Enjoy.

Special Places : Parfrey’s Glen, Wisconsin

I have only been to Parfrey’s Glen twice but it is a special place in a special area.  Located near Devil’s Lake State Park and in the Baraboo Hills area of Central Wisconsin, Parfrey’s Glen is a mini canyon of ferns, birch and stratified sandstone rock walls.  It is a challenging place to shot because it is it heavy shadows from the rock walls and full wooded canopy.  I took these shots last June.
