    I have uploaded some new images to my fine art website that you might like to view. These links are to images I just shot today in the Kansas Flint Hills.

    Thanks for looking. If you can pass my site on to your friends, I would appreciate it.

    David - I thoroughly enjoyed looking through your photos. And I agree that Kansas is far more diverse and beautiful than I had ever imagined. I've only scratched the surface of seeing the state and look forward to more of your photos. Enjoy your time out there.

    Very nice. I like your use of different aspect ratios to frame each shot.

    Thank you. The composition determines the aspect ratio. I'm not a prisoner of the standard aspect ratios. I need to go back to the Chase Lake Falls prepared to wade. I need to wade out into the stream to get a complete view of the width of the falls and also hopefully include some of the upper falls. The view I have posted is the middle falls. There are three sets of falls. The middle falls are the most dramatic. The upper falls is narrower and really roils when there is enough flow. The lower falls is pretty small in comparison. This was an evening shoot so the light and shadows are coming from the right side of the image. If I shoot in early morning light I might get some nice warm sunrise light on the falls. I hope the flow manages to keep going at near this level until the middle of next week. I have an hour drive to this spot so I'll have to leave early.

    Phil, you and I should probably meet sometime. Did you work in advertising or broadcasting around here?

    David, that's probably Mark; he's a sales manager at Entercom Radio. Distant cousin.

    I went back to the falls early on Tuesday morning. I wanted to get there before sunrise, but got up a few minutes too late. I have an hour drive to get there and arrived about fifteen minutes after the sun cleared the eastern horizon. It didn't really matter since the flow was dramatically reduced in just a week. I need more rain in this drainage to get some more shots of the falls. My plan was to wade across the stream to get a position where I could shoot the full width of the falls. You'll see from one of these images how much lower the flow was. I've found my spot though for when we get some more rain. I did shoot a could of other Flint Hills shots that I'm pleased with. Here are the links.
