Barn Owl

This was the best of both worlds for me. While I’ve been primarily a nature/wildlife shooter my photography lately has been focused on urban decay. So while we were exploring an abandoned power plant in East St. Louis two barn owls were inside and started flying around. It was dark and hard to focus but I was able to snap a few shots of these magnificent raptors in flight inside the building. Next time I’ll be prepared.

Originally from Oregon and after a career in the Air Force I ended up settling down in the St. Louis area. I have always taken pictures but seven years ago I decided it was time to really start learning the art of photography. Between work and family what little free time is spent out exploring the region. I am fascinated with nature, the man-made world and the interaction between them. This is especially apparent in all of the urban decay that exists in St. Louis. Nature is reclaiming so many areas while the people who live there do their best to hang on. I also have a degree in Graphic Design so patterns, shapes, and textures also speak to me.
