Tulip Art


The Tulip and dandelion, both out of focus,create a very unusual photograph. Almost all other background images were edited out of the photograph by simply using the "increase shadow" function in the Picasa editing program.

New Trail Discovered

Saturday I discovered a new area to visit. It is a .75 mile trail from the Duckett Water Treatment Plant to the Katy Trail in St. Charles County. It is a beautiful bicycle trail following Duckett Creek to the marsh/flood plain that is adjacent to the Missouri River, along which the old Katy Railroad Trail runs. This is one of the scenic locations for photographs along the trail.

Dogwood Flower bud

This Easter Sunday, the pure white pear treeblossoms and the pink flowers on the fruitless cherry trees signal the advent of Spring in our part of Missouri. Then comes the beautiful Redbud Tree blossoms and our favorite white Dogwood Tree blossoms. We fell in love with Dogwood Trees in North Carolina. This photograph shows the early stage of a Dogwood blossom. You can see the mythical spots of blood beginning to develop on the upper and lower petals. Next Saturday should be the day for our annual outing into a Missouri forest to view and photograph these beautiful colors of Spring.
