Peeling Back the Dark by Jacob-Routzahn Peeling Back the Dark by Jacob-Routzahn
Over the past four weeks, the wildflowers have been gradually reaching a peak. Spending most of the last week cleaning spring tanks, I took note of some of these areas that have potential for good shots.

Once the week was over, my brother and I had planned to take an early hike to a spot about five miles in, then canoe and fish after. Although we woke up at 2:30 am to get everything ready and set for the trip, we still didn't get to the parking area until 4:30 am. So, it was spot number two I had planned for morning shots.

About two and a half miles in lies this area with terrific options. Little islands of rock, Boob Mountains, an old homestead and a dammed up stream as well. This is where my brother and I spent the morning, smoking our meerschaum pipes, admiring the colors.

It was such a beautiful morning, watching the sun peel away the darkness with color. A great way to spend with my brother.

This shot was a pain. I sold my 17-40mm and am using my old 17-85mm until my new 10-22mm comes in on Tuesday (whew). Even if I still had my 17-40mm, I would had to have taken the same approach with this photograph. The approach was to shoot this in four shots. Two side by side on the bottom, and two for the top. Then stitched it together to form this panorama to compensate for the lack of a wide enough angle. Hope you all enjoy!

"like" is an understatement :) I'm envious that you get to enjoy such beautiful landscapes almost any time you want it seems!

It isn't nearly as much as I'd like unfortunately. If I had the money to travel, then every weekend would be my choice. But it is definitely closer than Missouri :D

If I had money I'd be traveling a lot! That darn money seems to factor in way more than I like :/.
