"I go out into the world, I make a photograph, and I give it to you as the equivalent of what I saw and felt." Ansel Adams _ The sky was completely magical when we stopped to capture these grain bins. By the time we got to our final stop if the day, the sky had clouded over fully, so I'm very glad we were able snag a few frames with that stunning glow. The second image is just to keep it real and help you better grasp the scene. Man, did it smell like money on that gravel road. 🐄💩🤭 _ #igersomaha #nocoastcollective #godsbeauty #rsa_rural #rsa_nature #agriculture #farm #midwestmoment #midwestisbest #igersmidwest #nephotonetwork #country_features #justgoshoot #iowa #captureiowa #ig_iowa #iowa365 #iowa_views #thisisiowa #onlyiniowa #rural_love #farming #midwestgrammers #ig_iowa #sunset #goldenhour #sunset_vision #sunsetsniper at Iowa

A snowy pink sunset in Iowa (S8). One of the best pieces advice I read about shooting sunsets was turn around! Some of the most gorgeous colors are behind you 💜💕 #mobiography_challenge_62

Another snow, another early morning of shoveling, another day of trying keep my eyes open sipping on my coffee in hopes it helps. I can’t help but sit here and think that in a few short weeks I’ll be half way around the world away from all this nonsense. January was great but I think we’re all over February at this point. I long for green grass, colorful tulips and some sunshine.☀️🌷 Anyone with me? ✄- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - #thelensbible #theimaged #natgeotravel #loadedlenses #agameoftones #createcommune #catchdsm #symmetrykillers #ia365 #highlightiowa #earthfocus #exploretocreate #visualsoflife #ig_iowa #moodygrams #fatalframes #freshberries #iowagrams #gramslayers #iowaphotographer #instagood10k #edgygrams #ig_color #onlyiniowa #wildernesslifestyle #thisisiowa #winterwonderland #captureiowa #iowa #photographyislife @visualsoflife @createcommune @agameoftones @earthfocus @fujifilmx_us @landscapecapture @landscapephotomag at Ankeny, Iowa

The Color of the Winds Kite Festival did not disappoint as far as the visuals. With these massive kites that flew overhead as I laid on the frozen lake, I can understand why many from around the state and out of state come to visit. This event reminded me that small towns, especially in Iowa, should look to do unique events that puts their town on the map. I’m not talking about town celebration days, but something that can bring an outsider to their town. However I know that’s easier said than done of course. Clear Lake’s celebration has become an Iowa staple for many to witness this event. at Clear Lake, Iowa

Taking a break from wildlife today to explore some of my favorite snowy landscapes from this winter. This one was taken a couple days ago after a day of snow when the sun peeked through the clouds for 20 minutes - just enough time to capture this subtle #sunset #highlightiowa #desmoinesphotographer #iowaphotographer #iowaphotos #photooftheday #365photos #all_shots #traveliowa #ia365 #midwestlivingmag #iowa #ig_iowa #midwestlife #iowablessed #iowaviews #canonusa #captureiowa #aroundiowa @capture_iowa #captureiowa #thisisiowa #onlyiniowa @canonusa #farmlife #farm #iowafarm @silosandsmokestacks @iconiciowa @capture_iowa @highlightiowa #snow @midwestlivingmag @camerasforconservancy #onlyiniowa at Prairie City, Iowa

So most of us here in NW Iowa and surrounding areas have seen the forecast coming and what has come in the last week.

"Embrace failure. Missteps and roadblocks are inevitable but are ultimately an opportunity to learn, pivot, and go after your goals with new perspective." Jenny Fleiss _ I am deep into submitting applications for different art opportunities and entering work into juried shows. It is always nerve wracking putting your work out there and the fear of failure can be overwhelming at times. Let me encourage you to just GO FOR IT. The worst they can say is no. If they do say no, reframe those rejections as redirections. After several "NO's" over the past few years, I've started celebrating the yes's and doing the hard work to improve my skills and the way I present my work. It's been a year of growth professionally and artistically and it has been good to stretch my creative muscles. _ #Iowa #Ig_iowa #Captureiowa #iowa365 #iowagrams #onlyiniowa #igersomaha #iowaoutdoors #iowaphotgrapher #iowaphotography #thisisiowa #HighlightIowa #midwestisbest #midwestlivingmag #midwestmoment #midwestisbest #igersmidwest #nocoastcollective #midwestgrammers #midwest_captures #themightymidwest #puremidwest #nature_brilliance #natureisneat #nature_addiction #rsa_nature #godsbeauty #naturelovers #naturephotographer #naturephotography at Iowa

Clear Lake’s Color Of The Wind Kite Festival was quite the event to witness Saturday. Was quite the day for photography to be out in the middle of a frozen lake and seeing these wonderful kites suspended above. Well the event itself was fantastic and the company was better. Was able to join on a venture with @bryanconley & @thedreadlocktraveler at Clear Lake, Iowa

Colors of the Wind —————————————————————————- It was a cold day to be out on an open frozen lake, but looking up and seeing something like this made all worthwhile. The sky was filled with hundreds of colorful kites and dozens of them were huge animals, like the size of a city bus! Of those floating giants we had a dragon, a cat, a horse, a pig, a group of astronauts, a bunch of squid, a few jellyfish and that amazing blue whale I’ve seen photos of in the past. However, even with all of the amazing animals flying the the sky this colorful string of 18 kites together caught my eye. That mixture of the blue sky and the sun lighting the kites up was perfect and I knew I had to make my way across the lake to snap a few shots. Great work up there people, another successful Colors of the Wind Festival! —————————————————————————- Had a great time heading up to this with my good buddy @eric.burson.photo (wildlife/documentarian) and our pal @thedreadlocktraveler (storm chaser). Check out their pages if you wanna see more shots from the day or their other incredible content. —————————————————————————- Shot on the Sony a7Riii / 70-200mm GM —————————————————————————- #a7Riii @sonyalpha #sonyalpha #bealpha #alphacollective @sonyimages #sonyimages @sony #sony #sonyalphasclub #ia365 #exploringiowa #thisisiowa #desmoines #ig_iowa #iowalife #catchdsm #igersmidwest #515grammers #inhf #midwestmoments #highlightiowa #ig_countryside #onlyiniowa #captureiowa #iowagrams #activedsmfamily #iowaphotographer #nocoastcollective #puremidwest #igersmidwest #agameoftones #artofvisuals at Clear Lake, Iowa

"All Heaven and Earth Flowered white obliterate...

Clear Lake’s Color Of The Wind Kite Festival was quite the event to witness yesterday. Many of the kite flyer came in from various places and some from out of state. Many spectators, including myself enjoyed watching kites of various sizes out on the frozen lake that was able to support along with vehicles. With some pushing close to 50ft in height this Iowa event is truly one should see while they’re in the state this time of the year. at Clear Lake, Iowa

This Carolina Wren knows we have his back. Seen him a few times this winter. Peanuts are his food of choice. Fun facts, unlike other Wren species, only the male sings the loud song. The male and female sing different parts, usually interweaving their song so it sounds like a single bird. Speaking of single... or not, they mate for life. 😍 Second picture he stands his ground against the dreaded sparrow. 😠 #bestbirdshots #birdfreaks #eye_spy_birds #sassy_birds #nature_cuties #ic_animals #animalfanatics #explore_wildlife #snap_parade #eye_for_earth #rebelsunited_nature #bestnatureshot #stalking_nature #tgif_nature #fiftyshades_of_nature #all_iowa #ig_iowa #aroundiowa #exploringiowa #carolinawren
