Most of the fields around me harvested now leaving only the remains. Between the remains and the sunset, they make for a unusual and interesting combination. Take a look at these photos from earlier this week and let me know how you like them.

It is amazing some of the pictures the sun makes in the sky. Yesterday was one of those days. With the clouds covering everything and putting a somber mood down on everything, the sun was there the whole time ready to peek through and brighten the day.

Have you ever had to stop and wait for the train to cross before you can go on? The thoughts that go through your mind probably are something like this..."I have a thousand places to be and things to do and I have to wait on this train...ugh." I have been in that spot many times. But sometimes it is relaxing to just sit there and wait(providing your not in a hurry and thinking previously said thoughts), and think, and count the number of cars on the train.

There comes a point in everyone's life where they look back at what has been and what they have done to get where they are now. Some look with regret, while others are happy with their choices that they have made. Regardless of the choices made, and where you are now, it is not too late to do something about the future. Look back and see what was, but also look forward and see what can be.

Looking around the past couple days, it has been obvious that fall is here. The time where all the farmers work 24/7 to get the crops in. Between the farmers, the equipment, and some fairly decent backdrops, photos can't really capture the moment like it should be caught. But here is an attempt at it.

There's something peaceful and relaxing about the old roads. I love seeing the trees and then as fall comes around, the changing of the leaves, all right there by the road. You can have the highways and freeways, I will take these old roads any day.

It has been a full past couple of days. I have been working on a video project recently for church that needs to be ready tomorrow, and then on top of that work, and a photo shoot today, plus a church event....a hay rack ride all afternoon. Burning the midnight oil last night was fun. It is amazing how much you can get done when everything is quiet and peaceful. Have one more night of that tonight and then church all day tomorrow. Will hopefully be able to post it or a link to it once it has been shown. Check back on Monday for pictures from my photo shoot with mom and the Koehn family. Have a great weekend everyone!

Hey Everyone! After a long break of blogging...I am hoping to get back into it. The past couple months have been swamped with church events and work and all kinds of things like that. Plus, when your busy and don't get out a lot, it tends to get a little boring taking pictures of the same old things all the time.
All that being said, here are some of my favorites from my time outside today. Instead of using my regular 18-55mm lens, I went with the 75-300mm zoom lens. It is amazing the different perspectives you can get of the same places you have been the whole time. Enjoy!

Meet my best friend/fiance. I finally made my way to California to visit her after not seeing her for 3 months other than FaceTime. Never a good idea to wait that long. But its working for us so far. She still loves me and neither of us can wait until the big day in February.
It's been an amazing past couple days in Los Angeles. As promised, here are some better quality pictures from my camera. The City Walk is similar to some places I have been, but much nicer and more upscale than something like Navy Pier. The lights and shops and just the experience was amazing to take in. I will be posting more from the Studio Tour, and Universal itself in the coming days...or hours. :p Enjoy!

Finally made it back to California to spend some time with my fiancé. Got in on Wednesday night and today we drove to Los Angeles for a couple days at Universal Studios. It's been a great first day. I will be posting more from the trip eventually, these are just a few from my iPhone. Enjoy!

Today we had a good time canoeing down the Skunk River. It was a very pleasant 10 mile trip and something I am looking forward to doing again soon. The photo below is something you will see on my instagram page, but wanted to post it here as well. These were taken on my iphone 4. Feel free to comment and share.

We had a good time in Chicago a couple weeks ago and offered to take some photos of the Fears. Had several great backgrounds for these with the Chicago skyline and Navy Pier right there. I am very thankful to call these people my friends. Feel free to comment or share. :)

Yesterday I took some friends to the airport in Moline and then drove their car back to Washington for them. I had a couple of hours to burn and ended up walking around downtown/the town square with my camera just to see what there is to see. The photos below are some of what I saw. I am sure some of them will eventually find their way to instagram...lol. Enjoy!

August in Iowa is always warm and humid. But it does offer some interesting photo opportunities. Check out some of these photos from my summer so far. From corn fields, to road trips, "field" trips, there is a large variety of images here. Let me know what you think in the comments and share with friends on Facebook and twitter. Hoping to get some additional couples pictures put online shortly as well from a recent trip.

There is just something about golfing and sunsets that equates to some amazing pictures. It was a beautiful night golfing with perfect weather and a gorgeous sunset. The photo below was shot on my iphone 4 and then uploaded to instagram with only a minor edit in the app.

Its that time of year again. Summer is winding down and school is about to start. We are now entering the dog days....everything is the same old, same old. Meet Bailey. She is thoroughly enjoying being outdoors this summer. It has been a fun summer so far...she plays soccer and keep away the best so far...but we are working on more. Check back for more photos of the summer scenes this year.

As a part of the recent string of Chicago pictures, also was able to get some of my mom and dad at Navy Pier with the gorgeous Chicago skyline in the background. Will be posting additional photos of some fun couples soon. Check back and let me know if I can help with your photo needs. - Wilson
