I just got back from a photography excursion to Topeka, Kansas! I’ve always loved to travel, and it’s neat to see the Lord opening doors to teach photography in many places across the country. The Lindsay family very graciously made it possible for a CAPTURE Kansas workshop to take place last week near the home, which happened to be an ideal location for doing landscape photography.
Contrary to what I used to think, Kansas can be a very beautiful state to photograph. The western half really does give the eastern half a bad name. Below are a few shots of the places we went during the 3 day workshop. If you’re ever driving through Kansas on I70 and enjoy taking pictures like I do, these spots are not that far from the Interstate and are certainly worth checking out. It’ It always helps to arrive during the golden hours or the times of sunrise or sunset.
