Peabody Opera House

Took the day off and met up with some fellow St. Louis photographers for a tour of the Peabody Opera House. I had never been there before so it was a good chance for photography and to see something new. It’s a beautiful building and our tour guide gave us plenty of time to explore (within limits). The two hours flew by and I got some nice shots. I made a mistake and left my fisheye lens at home though. Next time!

Sunrise

Sunrise on the first full day of spring 2015. It was a beautiful day here in southern Illinois and the St. Louis region. Tomorrow is supposed to be just as nice. So glad that winter is over.

Eagles on the river

We haven’t had as many Bald Eagles as usual in the St. Louis area this winter for some reason. But the last week has been very cold, the Mississippi River has been frozen so I decided to try my luck between Alton & Grafton. The eagles were cooperating and I was able to get a few decent shots so the year hasn’t been a total bust.
