City View From Waterworks Park

KC skyline and Northtown from Water Works Park.   This image is made up of 15 shots... five each to create three and then the three into one panorama.  Nikon D850, Nikon 70-200mm lens at 70mm. ISO 800, F5.6.  The shots below have similar data.


 Above shot was taken with the 70-200mm lens and the 1.4x tele-extender making it an effective 360mm lens.

Going For Sharp

Decided to head to the river to use every technique I've learned to get sharp images.  Not that I don't normally.  Used focus stacking, polarizer, best aperture, tripod, etc. etc.  All ISO 64.  Boat just happened to come along in the above shot which was 14-24mm lens at F8.

Used focus stacking for the first time ever in this one... five shots with the point of focus moving into the image for each one.  Camera did that work, then the five were imported on layers into Photoshop and aligned and merged.  You can accomplish something similar by using F16 or higher... but you start getting image distortion...

Brownstone Renewal Ongoing

 The William Chick Scarritt home (1887) continues it's return to glory with new, upper floor, windows.  Special order thermal since they are curved.  Only two panes left to install.  This house has come a long, long way since it burned a year and a half ago.

Walking By The Rivers

The Missouri and Kaw Rivers are jammed with ice.. still flowing, but packed.  Went down to see today.  Also saw a Ring-billed gill fishing in the Kaw.  Thanks John Page-Cooper for the bird ID.


 Circling the only portion of open water... he/she descended and grabbed a fish... very graceful flier.

Ice Castles

Concourse Fountain in Northeast Kansas City runs all year... When it freezes, it becomes a micro winter wonderland and certainly attracts attention....  Benton Boulevard and St. John Avenue.
