Picture Dump: River Bluffs

Time to start throwing some pics back into the blog, being a photographer and all... :)  If you've been checking my galleries, you've probably noticed I've added some images over the past couples months.  But in case not, I'm going to introduce them here over a series of posts.

The images above and below are both from a family trip I took down along the Mississippi River back over Labor Day weekend.  We camped at Frontenac State Park, and I still have lots of pictures to process from our time hiking in the woods along the bluffs there, but we also hopped in the car to go do some exploring around Lake City, Reed's Landing, etc.  These images were taken at a scenic overlook just off Highway 61 between Read's Landing and Maple Spring, closer to Maple Springs.  It was just a quick stop off the road as we headed back toward camp, but rewarded us with some beautiful views.

Galleries slowly growing...

Hey All,

Hope you're doing well out there in Internet Land...  I'm slowly, but surely, expanding the gallery content on the site.  If you were already familiar with my professional photography site, much of the content will look familiar, but there is some new content here, especially all the Minnesota stuff.  The Colorado landscape gallery I'm adding to more slowly, as I'm trying to be very judicious about what I add, filtering out old works that I no longer feel pass muster. We all grow as artists as we go along, and what might have seemed great a couple years ago can now leave us scratching our heads, wondering how we ever thought a particular work(s) was worthy of publishing.  So it goes...  So anyway, I'm working at culling pretty hard as I move that gallery over here.  I have added some new images, though, as well as new images in the Cityscapes gallery (including one from my days back in Colorado Springs that I really like).  I've also added the Nightscapes gallery, which I hope you'll enjoy.  Hopefully I'll be able to make some fresh images for that gallery this coming Spring/Summer, as I'm kinda anxious to get out to some dark skies areas (outside the city) again and do some Milky Way shooting.  I've also got some night images in my files from the past couple of years that I haven't even processed yet, so will try to get some of those done soon, too.

Beyond that, I'm planning to get a couple/few more galleries up in the coming weeks that showcase my portrait and conceptual work.  Stay tuned for those to show up over the next week or two.

Anyway, just checking in and updating you all on progress of site.  I hope you're all doing well.

 

Cheers,

Ryan
