Neil Smith Grassland

6000, acres of reclaimed tall grass prairie and savannahs.A place where the bauffalo once again roam. This day they roamed out of sight of the road that runs through their land, and we did not see a single anilmal. The beautiful autumn colors are beginning to kiss the hillsides and valleys.

Charged Atmosphere

A hot humid day, and a stillness in te air. Dry lightening preceeding the storms. This is my first real attamt to capture lightening, and this is the best of the lot. I have alot to learn. Definately best to have no bright street lights in view. Next time I will drive out of town.

Flash Photography Ghetto Style

I don't know what I was thinking going to a Camera club meeting for indoor still life photography practice without my external flash. My tripod was in my other vehicle,so it made some of my shots a challange. For this shot a wide aperature just wasn't enough to stop motion blur. The on camera flash is so harsh in close ups,so I wrapped a folded paper napkin around the camera flash as a make do diffuser,there for I call this photography ghetto style.
