My 500px Photo Stream

My 500px Photo Stream I have recently begun posting some of my favorite shots to the popular photo-sharing website 500px. I would love if you could take a look and rate some of my best works.

Yosemite National Park

There are few places in the world that inspire like Yosemite, with El Capitan and Half Dome staring down at you in the valley you almost feel protected. The dozens of waterfalls that dot the landscape in Yosemite were a welcome sight after the barren dry land of the Mojave. We were able to meander…

Arches National Park

Arches National Park was a treat. Apart from the soaring temperatures that followed us on our trip the whole week, there were no other issues. Arches is an outdoor enthusiast’s dream. It comes loaded with perfect bouldering spots that can easily turn into sport and recreational routes with the right equipment. Even if you are…

Big Sky in Nebraska

Spending a lot of time in Nebraska you learn a few things. You learn that Nebraska, along with a lot of the Midwest, changes temperature fantastically quick. During the Fall/ Spring/ Summer it can be 55 and rainy and in the span of two hours temperatures will soar to 88 sunny and humid. But my…

Monkey Bowl 2013

It has been over two weeks since this tournament in Nashville so I am pretty late in posting these. In between packing for this weekend’s tournament, in Verona WI, called Wisconsin Swiss I decided to post the pictures I had from the gameplay after I got injured. Anyone who has played Ultimate before at the…

Wildlife Sample

Here are a few photos from my last adventures of some random wildlife. This is just a sample of more to come. The mountain goats are from a climb in Colorado. The blackbird, because I am not sure what type of bird it is, is from a small hike at a Nebraska State Park. Wildlife…

The Break is Over.

Well needless to say it has been a long hard and creatively droll winter. It was flurrying and about 25 degrees but last night marks one of the last cold nights of this winter. There are a lot of things I wish I did this winter. One being take more pictures, being cooped up inside…

Foggy Nights

A dense fog drifted into Lincoln about two days ago and I decided to get out and try to experiment with some ideas. I recently got a new Nikon camera body so this was the first major outing that I really had a chance to experiment with it. The fog was almost a very fine…

New Camera Body

After a decent year of photography I have decided to upgrade my Nikon body to something that I could take a bit more seriously. I wanted to stick with Nikon because of the array of lenses and the range of cameras they offer. Anyways I hope to start taking a bit more pictures lately, but…

Winter Sunsets

On the way home from work I happened to have my camera and decided I would drive out to the nearest State Park. Not much else to say, the sunsets in Nebraska I believe are unrivaled. I hope you agree

Trip to the old farm

  In my childhood I used to spend summers adventuring and exploring at my grandparents farm in a town just north of Lincoln. I believe that not only did it instill in me a love of the outdoors but also an appreciation for rustic beauty. I don’t have much to say about this little trip….

Remember the Weekend Escape

As it grows colder here in the Midwest, those of us that love the outdoors tend to feel a little trapped. As it gets worse we start looking for little trips and activities that can get our minds off of the prison that the winter brings. I sincerely believe it is important to not necessarily…

Foggy Night

It has been a long time it feels like since my last post. I get really uneasy when I haven’t been able to go out and take pictures of something so this weekend I will get my fill. Yesterday I was able to catch these fun pictures from a hill overlooking the city on a…

The MoPac Trail

The MoPac trail is a pedestrian, cycling and equestrian trail that runs for 26 miles of old abandon and converted railway. This railway was once known as the Missouri Pacific Railroad’s Omaha Belt Line, which sounds like a lot to say so thankfully it has devolved into MoPac. This scenic trail takes you through corn…
