The mighty Meramec river

Okay, so most people don’t call it mighty like the mighty Mississippi, still from the view I had over the weekend, it looked pretty amazing. So a few weeks ago I decided to start using my new(ish) camera to start taking pictures of nature and posting them to see if I have what it takes to sell some of them through other websites.

Anyway, this past weekend I went to Castlewood park, which is located out west a bit from where I live. It’s a place I use to take my kids sometimes and a park that I always loved to go to.

Turns out I picked an amazing day to go there, along with lots of other people and while I had some difficulty with my camera, I did manage to get at least one what I would call really nice picture of the river looking down from the cliffs of Castlewood park. I hope you like it.

Insects in the winter

These days it seems that insects are what I’m most enjoying when it comes to nature. In fact, I just took up the hobby of photography with my new(ish) camera, and so insects sort of fell right into my lap as it were.

I’ve been having so much fun taking pictures of bees and butterflies in particular, along with all the flowers in my yard. Of course, I just started doing this a few weeks ago, so I can’t wait till I have a whole summer to do this.

Anyway, the article tonight is entitled “Where do insects go in the winter?by Mary Jo DiLonardo Over at Mother News Network. Now of course, my next purchase will be a lense for taking close up shots of all insects. I can’t wait!

Summer heat = dull fall colors

So unfortunately this is another one of those articles that you need to have an account for but as usual, I will tell you, you can go to your local library and look for the October 14-15 weekend edition of the Wall Street Journal and read it there.

Anyway, the article is entitled “Leave It to the Heat to Dull Autumn’s Glory” by Jo Craven McGinty at the Wall Street Journal. I know from what I’ve seen around here so far, fall might be a little dull in St. Louis.
