Smoky Hill River, April 2014

River Walk with Steven

My brother Steven and I took a hike down the Meadowlark Trail after lunch today. I’ve commented before about how I see things differently at the “speed of bike.” Turns out the speed of walking allows for even more awareness of one’s surroundings. I took a few photos of the Smoky Hill River, and the … Read more

Kansas Dust Storm

Kansas Dust Storm

This is Kansas. It gets windy. In fact, I’m pretty sure it’s been windier in the past. But the DUST! I’ve never seen anything like the dust we’re seeing today. It’s so bad there are weather alert warnings being issued, and visibility is definitely affected. Here are 3 shots from north of Lindsborg taken a … Read more

Spring Rides

I went on a good bike ride today, beginning with a tough slog into a fairly strong south wind. My route? The Meadowlark Trail. I knew my reward for reaching the end would a wind powered return trip. The day was nice, pleasant temps, and everything is just starting to turn green. Of course, as … Read more

First Flower of Spring

And not a moment too soon! I saw this yesterday afternoon (after a morning snow!) and made it back with my camera today. Bethany College campus, corner of 2nd and Olson.

Coronado View

Continuing my renewed habit of blogging first, and updating Facebook and Twitter afterwards, here’s a shot of Lindsborg from Coronado Heights earlier this evening.

I had a four day weekend coming up when I read on Murphyz blog that some new top level domains (TLDs) had been released, including one of personal interest, dot-photography. A quick investigation revealed that none of my regular … Read more

Mike’s 365 Crosses the Finish Line

Mike’s 365 was created on the 10th of January in 2013. I created the photoblog with the goal of posting a picture a day, for a year. Not just an image a day, but an image taken and processed on the day it was posted. The effort was a complete success! I didn’t miss a … Read more

Red Barn Studio

Lindsborg artists opened their studios to the public today in the annual Artists Studio Open house. We enjoyed our trip around town, visiting artists both old and new. We found a few things we liked and I also got a couple of great shots of the Red Barn Studio. (You can move your mouse over … Read more

Broadway RFD 2013

Seems like a long time ago, but barely a week before the great flood we attended Lindsborg’s Broadyway RFD where we saw a fun performance of Guys and Dolls. I managed to get a few pictures and have posted a few here, with a whole bunch more on Flickr. I really like this view of … Read more

Memorial Day 2013

We visited our local cemeteries today in honor of Memorial Day. We’ll have a traditional dinner tonight, including brats, potato salad, watermelon and more! I took a few photos while we were out. I wanted to shoot some HDR, and with the wind it was just a matter of choosing the ones with the most … Read more
