Iowa Corn and Train Tracks

I was out last night shooting pictures with my Nikon and my quadcopter. Finally got some cool shots of the maturing corn in the neighborhood. It’s really taking off and it’s hard to describe to friends and family back home in California. I hope this picture does it justice! Also got some artsy shots down by the train tracks in Booneville / Van Meter Iowa. Here are a couple.

Sunset in Booneville, IA

Last night, I scrambled to find a new place to photograph another amazing Iowa sunset. I jumped in the car and headed west around 8:30pm (Sunset is 8:45pm). After about 10 minutes of driving, the sun was disappearing on the horizon and I thought I missed it; oh well, I thought, I’ll get some cool sky colors about 10-15 minutes after sunset and call it a night. After cresting the final hill, I caught a glimpse, pulled the car over and ran across the street. This is in Booneville, Iowa – And I’m glad I caught it!

Booneville, IA – Train Bridge and Raccoon River

Here’s a cool video that I shot yesterday in Booneville, IA. It’s about 15 minutes from our home and a place that I haven’t been to before. I actually drove back over to get this video because I thought it was such a neat spot. The train bridge and the river beach were two cool highlights. We’ll be back, hopefully with the dog, this summer!
