On My Long Journey Home

The Halfa Church in Emmett County, Iowa was the last official photo stop on the way home from a week long Montana, North & South Dakota photo road trip with Rodney Harvey. I've know about this place for 7 years but have never been fortunate enough to catch a good cloud set when paying a visit......until this day. What a great way to end the trip!


8/5/12 Update: 2nd Place, Class 21 Theme "Iowa Churches" at the 2012 Iowa State Fair Photography Salon

    Saw this on display at the Iowa State Fair. Simply amazing! I was 0-4 on my first attempt but I've only been shooting less than a year. Your work is stunning. Fantastic job!
  • James Wheeler 3y

    Thanks Jim! You're just getting started....... keep shooting, stay inspired and good things will come to you at the fair. I've enter the state fair photo contest 12 times and you never know what will get in the show, let alone win an award. That's actually part of the fun of it.
  • Audrey Staples 3y

    Congrats and all, Jamie! Moved from printmaking to photography and enjoying the change myself.
  • Oscar Wild 3y

  • Frank Livers 3y

    great picture, love it!
  • Sinister Blue Note 2y

    Well done.
  • Mary 1y

    This is a masterpiece. I can't imagine what would have placed over it in the fair (kittens?), but this is a grand prize winner in my book. Those lines, the light, the blurry clouds......
