Flint Hills Photography by Charles Pearce
Landscape and Nature Photography
SUNRISE, OUTER BANKS
I had one night to spend at the Outer Banks of North Carolina and was anxious when the sky clouded during sunrise. However, I think the brooding weather made for a much better image than if the sky had been clear.
AFTER THE STORM
I was headed down the Kansas Turnpike, going to Wichita and saw this scene unveiling before me as a rain squall passed through. Frustrated because there was no place to pull off and photograph this, I came upon the Cattle Pens Exit, which crossed back over the turnpike and allowed me to catch a few images of this grand vista. Within minutes after taking these, the sky began to clear, the sun began to go down, and the show was over. This image is a panorama made of about eight images stitched together.
This is the place that got me excited about photography again after a couple of decades of not picking up my camera except to document birthdays and holidays. Konza is an almost magical place in the Flint Hills of north-central Kansas. Once part of a swath of tall grass prairie that extended from Canada to Texas, Konza is now a tiny remnant of prairies where once bison herds by the thousands roamed , feasting on the tall prairie grass. This image was made early one morning. The Round-headed Prairie Clover was in bloom for just a few days during that July.
Hi there! I'm really surprised to see you here! This site is currently undergoing a complete makeover after several years of neglect. I'm also using it to test Adobe Muse widgets and other things prior to incorporating them in another web site that I manage that has demanded a lot of my time lately. So, if you see things that look odd and/or out of place, they're probably not meant to be permanent.
If you come back, I hope to have a more pleasant web viewing experience for you. But, damn that's a lot of work!
