Along the Kansas River

(click image for larger version)

Just a quick post to let everyone know I'm still alive and we didn't have to leave anyone alongside the interstate during our move.  Always a plus.  But, we are official St. Louisans - not sure if that's the correct term, but it sounds good.

I haven't had a chance to venture out around St. Louis with my camera, since we're still getting situated.  Therefore, this is an older photo taken during an afternoon visit to the Kansas River, which was one of my favorite places to photograph.  I loved how vibrant the yellow and green grass was against the tree trunks.  That color really popped and easily caught my attention.  I also wanted to capture greater depth of field, so that details are seen throughout the photo.  I think it turned out good.  I like to think of my images like this as mini-landscapes.  We often get caught up in the "Grand Vista," but sometimes it's the smaller details that affect us most.
