Sunset. Somewhere near Alburnett, Iowa. @ThePhotoHour @spann @StormHour #sunset #iowa #Alburnett
Happy Birthday Today is new born calf day... Only in that I drove just in time to capture the sequence below: mom gives baby’s first bath, baby stands up for the first time, baby has its first meal. Life in Iowa.
JAIS (Just Another Iowa Sunset) I'm fortunate to be in rural #Iowa at the moment, where I can take a drive, take #photos and maintain #SocialDistancing, never interacting with a soul. @ThePhotoHour
Sometimes The Clouds Win The difference between a good sunset and a great sunset is a proper balance between sun and clouds. However, last night it was a fight between the sun and the clouds and the clouds won.
Starburst The setting sun shines through the storm damaged walls of an old #Iowa barn the other day. Feel free to share. @spann @ThePhotoHour @StormHour #storm #barn
Waves, Twists and Lines Waves and twists in the sky and lines on the ground.
Tonight’s first quarter moon. Because why not. #moon @spann @ThePhotoHour

It's looking back at me.... The other day I was out shooting sunset and on the way home I got stopped as a train went by. I took a pic but the camera settings were all wrong (because I'd just been shooting sunset) and this is what I got. Strangely, I kind of like it.
Yesterday in rural Iowa it looked like spring was right around the corner. Today? Not so much. #snow #iowa #iawx @spann @ThePhotoHour @StormHour @SnowHour

Cupola Moon Almost full moon (99.1%) rises beside a barn cupola in eastern Iowa. Cupolas were designed to add natural light and ventilation to the area under a roof, according to This Old House. They can be found in many shapes, including square, round, and octagonal.
Full Pastel Moon Since eastern #Iowa was covered in clouds yesterday evening, depriving me of shooting #moonrise, I give you a shot from a day earlier as the nearly full #wormmoon rose though sunlit pastel colored clouds. @spann @StormHour @ThePhotoHour #moon #fullmoon

Notre Dame Cathedral This is what it looks like currently and what it looked like Christmas Eve 2016. In April 2019, a fire broke out and destroyed the building's spire and most of its roof. @ThePhotoHour @spann #france #paris

The Seine Running through the heart of #Paris is the Seine, the river that runs though its center. It makes for a wonderful walk, no matter what time of year. That’s the Pont Alexandre III bridge in this shot with the Eiffel in the distance.

Private Event I stopped by the #Louvre tonight to take pics, only to find that a private event was going on - and I wasn’t invited! They had cool lights leading up to the pyramid. A top secret society? Let your imaginations run wild. @ThePhotoHour
