Lewis and Clark camped just a quarter mile to the left in this picture on their way west and their way back east.

Rivers Moon

 The "Super" Moon arose Saturday night as expected just north of the KC Skyline beginning at 8:49pm.   It was reportedly over the skyline proper Friday night... but I was just happy it was fairly clear.   There was a large amount of haze in the air though.. which made a "sharp" moon more difficult to attain.   Above, just peeking above the tree line.
 These shots were all taken from Kaw Point in Kansas City, Kansas from 9:10pm to 10:10pm.  The Missouri River is on the left in these images and the Kaw (Kansas) River is on the right... they merge in the center.   Although these images were all processed in Photoshop, there is no trickery employed... what I saw is what you see :)
          These were taken with a Nikon D800 and Nikon 28-300mm lens... camera set on manual...



                      Kaw Point is one of my favorite places to visit ... full moon or otherwise...

Sunset By The Kaw


Above, time-lapse of sunset on the Kansas City, Missouri skyline from the banks of the Kaw River.
Above photo taken with iPhone... because I left the camera at home :(
 Taken with the regular camera... two night shots of the KC skyline from the banks of the Kaw River.

Rivers of Ice

Kansas City from Kaw Point with the iced-up Missouri River.  The river is flowing along as usual just with chunks of ice.   Below, the Kaw flowing into the Missouri.  Kaw surface is more frozen, water flowing underneath.

Bald Eagle Along The Kaw

 Went down to the river today... the junction of the Missouri and the Kaw to photograph the ice floating by.  Happened upon what I at first thought was a large hawk... turned out to be a juvenile Bald Eagle.. It had just caught something, couldn't tell what, and was enjoying a leisurely early dinner.
