I kind of like this landscape...the sky is a bit dark, but it was a gloomy day.

I took this photo last Fall from the window of my truck while driving on highway 50 toward Pawnee City, Nebraska.  I believe it's a Quarter Horse ranch/farm not far from the Elk Creek turn. This photo was selected for the January cover of Your Country Neighbor magazine.

I used to pass by this Missouri farm once every month, but this particular time it was later in the day; the light produced longer shadows.

Sun, shadows, and clouds caress this scene of soybeans ready for harvest.  This was taken in the Fall of 2006 near Nemaha, Nebraska.

Barn and Wheatfield


I pass a particularly picturesque farm pond every time I head west out of town.  It takes on many appearances depending on the time of year and the time of day, not to mention the combination that produced this sight.

Farm Pond


When we irrigated on my father's farm back in the 60's, it was a matter of hand-carrying twenty foot aluminum pipe four inches in diameter, for 18 rows over to dry ground. The option pictured is not as labor intensive.

One of my earliest photographs (about the time I was becoming a serious photographer), is this morning shot of the Nishnabotna River (or Nishny, as the local Iowans affectionately refer to it), taken just east of where it empties into the big Missouri.

This isolated summer storm was floating above an impressive farmstead with towering silos.  Silos like these and grain elevators are the skyscrapers of the plains. This is one of my favorite pictures because its appearance was a pleasant surprise while driving through Kansas farm country. It also won a first place ribbon in an area photo contest.
