Milwaukee

Perhaps in the final trip in the North(before snow falls) this year, I went to Lakeshore Park and Milwaukee, besides Lake Michigan. Most all the pictures were taken while walking along the Oak Leaf Trail. Besides the city and lake landscape, I also got a few decent pictures of Mallards like the ones below, which is always a Bonus for me when I'm photographing landscapes and city scenes.

I also managed to either take some nice (...)

Photography at Pikes Peak State Park

Categories:

On one of my last trips this year in the North(may go south over Christmas Break), I went to Pikes Peak State Park (not to be confused with Pikes Peak in Colorado which is named after the same person). Its relateively smaller than other parks I've been to along the border but had great views of the Mississippi River along the bluffs and observation posts. My pictures are markedly different from (...)

Hiking in Castlewood

11/21/2012
Categories:

After getting back into St. Louis, I went hiking in Castlewood State Park today. Except for the evergreen, all the trees had lost all their leaves. However, the views from the bluffs were still magnicient, especially the ones looking over at the Meramec river. The light in the sky was really bright and ruined a few of the photos early in the afternoon, but good shots were available later around (...)

Chicago Pictures

11/20/2012
Categories:

Passed through the windy city of Chicago Went through Chinatown then into downtown. I much prefer natural landscapes than city and urban landscapes. Cities are sort of dull and drab to me in terms of photography but I did get some decent sky shots and lakefront shots. Lake Michigan is really the saving grace for Chicago in terms of scenic shots. I mainly used the FLD filter for skyline shots along Navy Pier (...)

Shooting at Pike Lake State Park

11/16/2012
Categories:

Since winter is here in Wisconsin and the trees have lost all their leaves, I'm mainly concentrating on landscapes with water and cliffs. Today's trip was to Pike Lake State Park. Nestled in the heart of the Kettle Moraine Forest, Pike lake includes a large lake, woods, hills, and many suitable hiking trails. Since the weather has gotten colder than most people prefer, it was relatively (...)

Trip to Cadiz Springs

Went to Cadiz Springs State Park today. It was cold, maybe around 40 F temperature wise. Wasn't too bad hiking. Nearly all of the non-pine trees in the wilflife area had lost the leaves but there were plenty of evergreens so the color wasn't too drab. I mainly focused on shots of the lake area and a few on nature trail. Also hiked to the end of one trail where I got a decent shot of the (...)

Yellowstone Lake State Park trip

11/11/2012
Categories:

Perhaps the last warm day of the year around the Wisconsin Area. Decided to take the chance and visit Yellow Lake State Park. It was a pretty scenic place, especially with the sky and the clouds. No colors though as the trees had already lost all their leaves for the winter. Hiked along the lake following the road up until the high point where I could get a clear view of the entire lake (...)

Rock Cut State Park

11/09/2012
Categories:

Went to Rock Cut State park, the largest state park in Northern Illinois yesterday to take photos and to hike. I was a bit disappointed because most of the park was closed for Deer Hunting through Sunday. Lake Olson was accessible but unfortunately Lake Pierce(the bigger of the two lakes) was not. The Highway that crosses the park basically separated the part of the park that was still open from the part that (...)
