A dramatic black sky against the stark white of the Christian Church in historic Sibley, Missouri, site of Fort Osage, the precursor to present day Fort Leavenworth.
This scene emphasizes the forethought in the architecture of the church building itself, as the cupola of the church forms an arrow pointing toward Heaven. The stark contrast in the image focuses the eye to the detail in the church, under a vast expanse of featureless sky. The white building symbolizes the triumph of light over the surrounding darkness. Built in 1910, it is still in use today.
BNSF (Burlington Northern Santa Fe) locomotive crossing the Missouri River at Sibley, Missouri near Fort Osage. This vibrant image puts you there, on the tracks, with power and bulk looming in front of you! I was on bended knee behind my tripod on the tracks just past the bridge itself, and had only a moment to capture this as the locomotive was definitely headed my way. Photographic decisions had to be made correctly and on time to avoid disaster.
