"Supermoon Rising"

I photographed this just as the moon was rising above the line of haze and clouds that were crowding the horizon. You can actually see the haze, which keeps you from seeing all the detail on the lunar surface. In the lower third of the moon, you can see the shadows of clouds, which almost appear as a treeline.

With this photograph, I set-out to emphasize a variety of elements in one photograph: the grittiness of the pavement, the highway lines slowly converging to one, a wide road converging to a twisty, uphill climb, and with the eerie clouds in the distance.
Back in May, this place and time met my expectations. What I found interesting with this photograph is how the perception becomes interesting as you step back from your monitor (back up across the room) and view this photograph from a distance. You'll see how the title of this photograph really comes to life. :)

This looks better viewed full-screen.

"Storm Approaching"

"Storm Approaching"

I've wanted to photograph this old homestead for quite some time and had envisioned the result in my head. A few weeks ago, everything fell into place and this is what I created.
Another which could tell so many stories...

Location: south Arkansas.

"The Turkey Dance"...

"The Turkey Dance"

I photographed this turkey hen today as she was entering a clearing. To my surprise, she decided to dance. She began to shuffle, spin and shake her leg. It will surely soon be the new dance craze at local clubs.
The fuzzy halo you see around her body is all the dust/dirt flying from her feathers as she spun herself.

Blue Lake

It was a clear, winter evening at sunset. The sun lit the ridge in the background, while the lake was in the shadow, reflecting the dark blue, clear sky.

"Hog Wild Iron Horse"

According to local stories, this chopper was once used to transport moonshine in the late 40's. Regardless, it is an impressive piece of iron art. Check out the mohawk!

"Little House on the Prairie"

This is not the home of the popular tv show, but this homestead reminds me of the Little House on the Prairie. At a glance, you may gloss-over this photograph, but if you take a moment to study it, you may find a complex composition and various interesting and supporting elements. Just imagine the conversations you could hear inside or outside the home.

Location: North Arkansas.
