“It is strange and fine – Nature’s lavish generosities to her creatures.” – Mark Twain
Anyone who has traveled much in the state of Missouri knows the wide variety of gems Mother Nature has given us. With the power of the personal camera, anyone can capture their own breathtaking river view, modern skyline, rustling prairie, or golden sunset. It’s amazing the beauty of Missouri, especially during the spring.
In Hannibal, our river is showing its might once again, offering rarely captured photographic fodder. The flowers and trees are coming to life once again, offering unique opportunities for amazing photographs at places such as our city parks. And I’m sure I don’t even have to mention vacation photos of the family!
After a long, cold, snowy winter, nothing beats soaking up some sun (or soaking in some spring rain) and exploring the wonders of Missouri with family and friends. No matter where you live in the state; it’s time to grab your camera and go exploring.
