Smithsonian Photo Contest 2016
I loved this tree even before I took the photo. It's in a large shopping center and I'm shooting through a chain link fence, but I could see the minimalist tree in the freshly mown lawn. Sony DSC-HX90v 6.4mm firstname.lastname@example.org ISO 80.

Gasconade River Sunrise
On an early morning drive to Ha Ha Tonka State Park (Missouri), we took a random exit off the interstate to photograph the sunrise. We lucked into this wonderful railroad bridge over the Gasconade River with morning mists swirling around. We were cold, but loved every minute! Sony A7II 36mm 6sec@f14 ISO100.

No one said flowers had to be beautiful. This thistle gives me a Dr. Suess vibe and mirrors the shape of the setting sun. Sony A7II 40 mm 1/40@f22 ISO 100.

Walking at the Watershed
This photo was taken specifically for a photo challenge "From Afar: People". It made the finals. The weather was foggy and rainy, but I went out anyway grabbing the most colorful umbrella that I owned. I used the delay feature on my camera to capture me walking along the boardwalk at a local nature reserve. Sony DSC-HX90v 4.1 mm email@example.com ISO 100.

Village by the Sea
Village on the Sea. It's important when planning a trip to include enough flexibility to change plans. Chatting with locals can sometimes send us in a fruitful direction. In Cornwall, we hadn't planned on a trip to St. Mawes on the Roseland Peninsula, but on the suggestion of our publican (the owner of the pub we were staying in in Falmouth), we set out on a ferry to this charming village to see the castle and capture this photo. We had coffee with some locals and found new places to explore. 7.23.2016. Sony A7II 91mm 1/500@f10 ISO200. For more photos of this trip see Cornwall 2016 Album
