Shot on US 20 near Galena, Illinois, this farm has it all. Corn, hay, pasture and buildings, lots of buildings. The idyllic rural setting was captured on a mid-Summer day in the late afternoon.

I combined five exposures over a five-stop range with a fixed aperture and variable shutter speed processed with Photomatix Pro 5 and Detail 3 from Topaz labs to produce this hdr image.

Images are available in matted, framed, canvas or mounted formats as well as greeting cards and posters at truly extraordinary pricing. Just click the Prints, Posters or Cards tab to explore all the formats available. The sample below is a framed print with a walnut frame and a black matte.

I am retired from years as both a middle-school teacher and college professor in education. My interest in photography began at age 13 when the magic of image making became visible to me as I processed my first roll of film in a darkroom lit by a dim red bulb. Over the years I learned to see beauty in the mundane. I currently shoot with Canon digital cameras and process mostly using HDR techniques allowing me to re-present what I saw.
