tree, fog, field


Isn’t GPS technology awesome?! I use a GPS to geotag all my photos and post the coordinates and a link to a map for each photo I publish. It’s amazing how accurate these things are and it is really awesome when you can zoom in on a satellite map and see the tree/thing you photographed!

I took this near Ames, IA on the last hundred miles of a spring roadtrip from Minneapolis to Denver, and Death Valley. I didn’t expect to take any more photos and was just focused on getting home but as I got into Iowa there was this really neat bluish fog around this tree in a farm field along I-35.





the sentinels at sunset

I took a quick one day trip down from Minneapolis to northern Illinois to see my dad and brother who were up in the area.  You know how these go - get up early, drive out, spend as much time as you can, drive back as fast as possible.
It was a great day and I didn’t have much intention of taking photos along the way but I was glad I brought my camera.  As I headed west, out a little ways in a farm field I saw this amazing sunset beaming through a stand of trees.  It was one of those moments where you get really excited about what you are seeing and hope it doesn’t go away before you can get your camera out and set up.  The view from the road wasn’t optimal so I drove into a nearby apartment complex, parked, hopped a small fence and quickly ran off into the field near the trees.
It was late fall with no leaves left but the grass was still green and these massive trees gave the appearance as if they were standing guard to the what lay beyond.
