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…

Snow Day: Snowshoe

With the public schools out for the day I decided to use my snow day like anyone would, snowshoeing. I went out as early as  I could this morning to get a jump on a great morning. This was the first time this year I have been able to get out and I seem to…

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…

This last weekend I ventured to the Front Range of the Rockies in Colorado. I wanted to escape from school, and work, and this was the best way to do it. We started at Summit lake, heading north on Mt. Evans trail. It took us up almost 500 vertical feet to…

Start of a New Year

With school and the New Year starting we all have our resolutions. To lose weight, to treat people better… mine is to ride my bike everyday. I intend to also try and take pictures on all those rides. Here is a collection of random photographs from the first week or so of the 2013 year,…

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

The Outtakes

Every photographer has them. The photos that don’t speak to you, the ones that are just a bit off center, or that just didn’t turn out the way you had hoped? Well these start to pile up, so I thought since I haven’t had a post in awhile I would go through these outtakes and…

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…

Fall Colors

Fall is quickly descending upon the Midwest, and I would like to think that Lincoln is just as beautiful as anywhere else. The leaves are changing, the wind is a bit chillier, and the daylight is getting shorter and shorter. I decided to get out in these few precious hours of sunlight to try and…

New Bike

Recently in my quest to spend as much money as I can without actually having it, I decided to buy a new bike. I needed something that was more durable and versatile then my current rig the Specialized Allez. Those of you that are not familiar with this ride, it is a road bike that…

Wide Universe

Every student has had that night where they would rather do anything but study. That was my whole day. I had already gone on a long bike ride, another post is soon to come about my bike and biking habits but that isn’t today’s subject. I decided to go out at night and take some…
