No Moon

Monday morning Peoria greetings to one and all!

There was all this talk the last few days about the “Super Blood Moon” that we were going to be experiencing and how spectacular it would be. Needless to say in Central Illinois last night the clouds were completely socked in, so no moon for us! Oh well! I hear the next one will be in 2033, so I’ve marked it in the calendar and we’ll try for it next time!

Jan and I were out this past Saturday shooting for out friends at San Juan Pools and we did have great weather. All day there were wonderful blue skies and lots of sun so it made for a great day of photography! It’s always fun to go do a shoot like this because it’s great to see what people are doing and how they are fixing up their homes with pools in their backyards. We started the day in Canton, Il. and finished there for a night shot. There were lots of great places that we shot at and this night image was one of them!

It’s time for us to get to work, so we hope that you have a great week as always!!!

It’s that time of year!

Monday morning Peoria greetings to one and all!!!

At this time of the year I love to get out and shoot some football be it high school or some of our small local colleges. One of the things that I won’t do though is to go shoot a game at night. The lighting isn’t all that great at most local stadiums. so the images aren’t ever as good as I would like.

This past Friday we had some pretty good storms that rolled through Central Illinois, so a number of the high school football games were postponed to Saturday afternoon and that’s a green light for me to shoot! The day started out with the clouds all socked in and at some point I was thinking that I wouldn’t go, but the clouds started to roll out of the area in the early afternoon and I was good to go! The game pitted Washington High School against long time rival Metamora High School, so you knew it would be a good game. The weather was perfect by kick-off and there wasn’t a cloud in the sky, so I was really happy! The game started off slow from an action stand point for photography, but then things got heated up and there were some good images that started to happen!

Here’s one of my images from the Washington / Metamora game.

Let’s all have a great week to come and thanks for checking out our work!!!

Door County

Monday morning Peoria greetings to one and all!

Well most of us had a short work week this past week, so we’re all getting back into the swing of things! Sometimes a week like this can drag on a bit, so we’ll see what goes and hopefully it won’t be too bad!!

Jan and I are sharing a couple of snaps from the Labor Day weekend spent in Door County, Wisconsin shooting photos. It’s really so much fun to be checking out new places like DC and to explore the area was wonderful. We spent a fair amount of time driving on some of the backroads and it’s always amazing what things and places that you’ll see. It’s really what I’ve always talked about on any road trip is to be able to have the time to get off the interstate highway system and travel the two lane roads in the USA.

Here’s a couple of snaps that we snagged on our trip to Door County, Wisconsin!

Let’s all have a great week to come and thanks as always for checking out our work!

The lighthouses at Sturgeon Bay

Tuesday morning Green Bay Wisconsin greetings to one and all!

I hope that your Labor Day weekend was a good one! Safe and sound is always a very good thing!

Jan and I spent the weekend in Door County Wisconsin and it was a really great time. For the most part, the weather was good and and it also was very conducive for some great photography. We ended up spending a couple of days driving around the entire DC peninsula and it was a lot of fun! It was the first time that both of us have been there, so it’s always fun to be exploring new places! Sometimes it’s not what you were thinking it might be, but for the most part it’s a very good thing to find new places and to be surprised by what you can find!

One of our little discoveries on this trip were a few lighthouses in Door County and two of them were located in Sturgeon Bay. The first was the Sherwood Point Lighthouse and the second was the Ship Canal Lighthouse. It was interesting to photograph both of these lighthouses because both a under the control of the US Government and the US Coast Guard, so that means your access is limited!!!! That can make it tough to get the shots that you need, but we managed and I think that we’re both happy with what we got!

Here’s a couple of our snaps from the two Sturgeon Bay Lighthouses!

Thanks as always for checking out our work and we hope that you have a great week to come!!!
