This image was captured at Chapman State Park in Pennsylvania. The sun was quickly setting and I was running out of light. I only had my Tamron Sp 150-600MM f/5-6.3 Di VC USD lens attached to my Canon 5D Mk IV. This is absolutely not a landscape lens. I managed to get this shot as the sun completely dissapeared behind the mountains.
This image won 1st place in the 2018 Forest Park Nature Center photo contest for the landscape category.
This is not my usual photography subject, but I saw this truck while at Kinzua State Park in Pennsylvania and immediately had this image in mind.

While walking near Chillicothe, Illinois, we found these old iron steps that had been overcome by the trees and years of growth. Some of the trees have bricks inside embedded within them.
This was captured at Banner Marsh near Canton, IL. This image is made up of 3x(5 shot exposure) HDR images merged into a single 1:1 panoramic.
These two trees are usually in the middle of a marsh. However, on this day, Banner Marsh (near Canton, IL) was frozen and the falling snow made for an amazing backdrop and ground cover.
