"It reminded me of what dad said after every snail's crawl home from Albany when snow hit. 'It's New York people. It's winter. We get snow. If you aren't prepared to deal with it, move to Miami.' " _ I know, I know. All of the snow is getting old. But if you actually learn to embrace it when it falls (and keeps falling) you'll enjoy the season a little bit more. I especially love winter because it brings us SNOW DAYS, the two best words a tired teacher can hear! ❄💙❄ How do you feel about winter? Leave me a comment below. If you're looking for some light reading on this long winter's night, check out my newest blog post where I share more images from the Iowa photo adventure where I captured this beauty.

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

In a world that wants all the answers right now, you have learned the art of resting in ambiguity. . . You research, learn and then make the best decision based on the information given. . . You are comfortable in adapting to change when it presents itself, knowing that change is constant. . . You have strategies in place to best handle risk. . . These characteristics have been hard sought but they are an art to be learned. They are the very principles you insist on educating your team with because they are the beginning of success. . . #cedarrapids #businessleadership #entrepreneurship #servantleadership #businessgrowth #entrepreneur #iowacity #iowa #iowalife #iowagrams #thisisiowa

The sunset views weren't bad tonight, but I'm ready for black dirt and green grass. I suppose we can count on at least one more storm during the girl's State tournament week. at Britt, Iowa

"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... Snow...unceasing snow" Hashing, Japanese haiku _ Winter has no plans to leave anytime soon, so might as well make the most of the snow, snow, snow that's going to continue to fall. I dragged my friend @morthnmetstheye out for an all day drive 2 hours from home. 😉We sure found some gems! _ #nature_brilliance #natureisneat #nature_addiction #rsa_nature #godsbeauty #naturelovers #naturephotographer #naturephotography #optoutside #midwest #midwestisbest #midwestlivingmag #midwestmoment #midwestisbest #igersmidwest #nocoastcollective #midwestgrammers #midwest_captures #themightymidwest #puremidwest #Iowa #Ig_iowa #Captureiowa #iowa365 #iowagrams #onlyiniowa #HighlightIowa #igersomaha #rockbrookcamera #nocoastcollective at Iowa
