Got to witness an incredible rainbow on the drive home from work. By the time I got my camera bag and got to my favorite spot, the rainbow was no where to be seen. Although I didn't get any rainbow or even a colorful sunset, a visit to the barn is usually a nice time. Experiences like these used to crush me internally, as they always felt so defeating and made me wonder why I went through the effort of trying. Well, I'm learning that they aren't roadblocks but rather just minor speed bumps.. Things continue, life goes on, and it usually has a way of working out better than we could ever imagine at the perfect moment. Just one of the many fun parts of being a landscape photographer.

Devil's Elbow Bridge is located near a u-shaped bend in the Big Piney River. This bend was known as a devil of an elbow causing jams for Ozark lumberjacks trying to get their logs downstream. A bridge was built here in 1923 and served as part of the original route 66 route across Missouri. Today it is a peaceful detour off the highway to admire the history of the area and scenic bluff views. A restaurant located next to the bridge is under renovation to become more family friendly. . . #visitmo #route66 #missouriroute66 #scenicbyway #backroads #backroadsusa #smalltownusa #takethescenicroute #kicksonroute66 #devilselbow #devilselbowmo #bridge #oldbridges #bridgesofinstagram #midwestmoment #midwestlivingmag

Peonies (or Pine-e’s as pronounced in Southern Indiana) have always been my very favorite flower. They bring back such sweet memories of my great grandma handing me a pair of scissors and letting pick every single stem I could. I have a bush behind the house that was Tom’s grandma’s (shared with me by my sis-in-law) and selfishly...that one’s just for me❤️! I have been planting peonies all over the farm the past couple of years and can’t wait to watch them grow and share them with my girls one day. They have to be one of the most precious family heirlooms I can imagine! #peonies #edwardsfarmstead #edwardsfarmsteadflowers

Happy almost FRIYAY!! Wasn’t yesterday Monday?? The days are all blurring together 🤦🏻‍♀️ I have been known to hang weird things on my walls... like if it exists, I’ll put it on a wall. I did a record wall in the last house and I told myself I would have one in every house I live in and so far I’ve lived up to that! I filled up the hallway this time and I’m loving it! Go to savannabrooke.com or the link in my bio to check out the whole post! What’s something weird you’ve hung on your walls?? #recordgallerywall #gallerywall #blackandwhitedecor

"May the flowers remind us why the rain was so necessary." ➳ Xan Oku⁣ ⁣ I'm not a portrait person, can you tell!?! And the older you get it's hard to position your face so you don't look like a dried up raisin. lol. If you're not there yet, just you wait, you'll get there!⁣ ⁣ Couldn't pass up a shoot with my lilac tree before the blooms die off, the scent was heavenly. 🌸

Ok- here’s a crazy thought. What if we take these Covid 🍋 🍋 🍋 and try and make some lemonade? WHAT IF you guys, Virtual Shopping becomes a REAL THING. I’m not talking about Online Shopping, we all know about that- I’m talking about Video Chat and Facetime Shopping. Scheduling 30 minutes a visit (or more) to talk, laugh, get to know each other and SHOP. We’d probably make friends and connections with people we normally never would’ve. Some of the objects in my store have such a long backstory, there is just no room to explain it online. But being able to show you angles, close ups, to talk out gifts and purchases. THAT COULD BE AMAZING 😀Couldnt it actually be really cool if we all got behind it? Any one want to try it? I have just added Booking to the site where you can shop with me Virtually in 30 minute blocks. No charge for booking. We’ll just peruse and hang out. Grab a coffee. You don’t even have to put a bra on! It’s IDEAL!!! Check out the new Booking feature today! I’m so excited to try it out I’m gonna give 20% off your total purchase to the first 5 people who sign up! Cause lemonade you guys. LEMONADE.

The James A. Garfield Memorial is currently under renovation. Somehow it still manages to be an imposing structure sitting framed by beautiful iris and allium. President Garfield was our 20th president and only in office from March 4, 1881 until his assassination on September 19, 1881. Born in Moreland Hills, Ohio he is one of 7 presidents born in Ohio. We claim an 8th in William Henry Harrison, because although he was born in Virginia he lived most of his adult life in Ohio. #usapresidents #jamesagarfield #garfieldmemorial #ohiopresidents #lakeviewcemetery #cleveland_official #clevelanddotcom #cleveland #thisiscle #cle_news #clevelandphotography #ohiogram #inspiredbyohio #theohiocollective #bestofthebuckeyestate #midwestlivingmag #midwestgrammers #wow_america #news5cleveland #wkyc #216 #landscapephotography #ohiogram #beautifulohio #springflowers

A couple of mornings back, I went outside to catch the sunrise, before anyone else was awake. I love the solitude of early morning, simply standing still and listening to the silence. Today is going to be filled with pouring rain and homemade pretzels made with family, and that's a good thing too. #sunrise #midwestlivingmag #midwestmoment

Black/white/natural materials is my go to design backdrop. It’s clean and timeless. It can also be ...boring. I love adding fun decor elements that you aren’t married to for long periods of time (ie colorful kitchen accessories like Nothing Fancy wraps 🤪). 🍋🍋🍋 I used one fun knob in my shed as a nod to the makers of my main ingredient: beeswax. It makes the boring utility closet interesting without tying my whole shed to a theme. 🐝 What’s your best tried and true decorating tip?! #midwestlivingmag #midwestmoments #beeswaxfoodwraps #noplastic #zerowaste #momofthree #midwestmama #fancyfolk #glamgranola #mycountryhome #bhghome #americanhousestyle #thatsgoodhousekeeping #realsimple #midwestmakers #midwestmade #healthyhome #naturallife #hippiemama #maker #ecomama #sweetcountryhomes #bees #blackandwhite #accents #homeaccents #littleshedthatcould #goldaccents #antiquebronze #designinspiration

Hey There🤗❤️ . Jason used to be a window guy. He would replace windows and then bring me stacks of old and unusual windows. 😊😊 . When we moved here we got rid of almost all windows but now I’ve started accumulating them at auctions again 🤔😂 . Do you have old windows too? Here’s an idea for you to do with 6 windows and a few screws. 😊(and someone who knows how to put it together so it doesn’t fall down by morning🤪) . My window potting shed is a focal point in this tiny garden. 🌸🌸🌸I planted wisteria next to it so hopefully one day it will be covered in beautiful blooms. . Here’s to Thursday and gardens and repurposing old worn out junk🌸🌸🌸🌸 . #gardensofinstagram #gardeningismytherapy #gardening_feature #inspirationalgardens #gardensoftheworld #thedesigntwinslovespring #katecodkindreds #bhghome #bhg #bhgflowers #flowerbed #pottingshed #diyprojects #thecottagejournal #farmhousefeatures #cottagestyle #homeandgardenmagazine #fleamarketdecormagazine #betterhomesandgardens #countrylivingmag #thefarmhousemovement #jennywrendesign #michiana #indiana #midwestlivingmag #countrygardensmagazine

Missing museums? You can enjoy free public art outdoors at the Skokie Northshore Sculpture Park! The park runs for two miles along McCormick Blvd. features work by 60+ artists from around the world. While the park is surrounded by Skokie, the land is actually owned by the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago. 🌳 🎂 #secretsocialdistancing #secretchicago . . I first learned about the park in @mollypg’s wonderful book, and have enjoyed biking by ever since! 🚲 #chicago #skokie #uesecretspot

Trying to perfect my bird shots. I find the only way I can get a half way decent shot of a bird is to use my tripod. If I try hand held it seems they are not very sharp. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Anyway, this Male Eastern Bluebird is helping his partner nest in a luxury birdhouse in our back yard for a little while. Hopefully everything goes well and soon there will be more pretty bluebirds visiting our yard. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #easternbluebird #bluebird #birdsofinstagram #birds_brilliance #birds_adored #birds_perfection #bestbirdshots #eye_spy_birds #feather_perfection #raw_birds #audubonsociety #fav_squares #nuts_about_birds #nature_brilliance #nuts_about_nature #naturalmichigan #puremichigan #michiganview #puremittigan #midwestlivingmag #hey_ihadtosnapthat #signatureshots_hub #photo_hitchhiker #nikonusa #nikonlove #nikon200500 #everything_imaginable #dof_brilliance #dof_nature

Does anyone else enjoy roadside attractions? They are the reason we love travel days so much! We use the @roadside_america app, filter to places within 5 miles of our location and stop whenever possible. Today’s stops were particularly fun because I chose them, kept them secret, and told Candice she would see the attraction as we pulled up! Her reactions were hilarious! 1- Wᴏʀʟᴅ’s Lᴀʀɢᴇsᴛ Cᴏᴀʟ Sʜᴏᴠᴇʟ - This massive coal dragline had/has a capacity of 30 tons per scoop! 2- Sᴛᴀɴᴅ ᴏɴ Tʜʀᴇᴇ Sᴛᴀᴛᴇs - Have you ever been in 3 places at once? Now we have! 😂 We thought we were in the wrong place as we turned down this narrow gravel road, but about .5 mile down, we saw the marker! 3- Gɪᴀɴᴛ Hᴀɴᴅs ɪɴ Pʀᴀʏᴇʀ - Standing at 32 feet, these hands have been praying since 1972. 4- Lᴏᴜɪsʙᴜʀɢ Cɪᴅᴇʀ Mɪʟʟ - Not exactly a roadside attraction, but this was our home for the night and probably one of our favorite Harvest Host stays! • 📥 Save this post so you too can stand in a giant coal shovel or enjoy some delicious apple cider doughnuts! #MissouriAdventure #MissouriOnly #midwestlivingmag #midwestmoment #mobackroadadventures #louisburgcidermill #yourshotphotographer #worldslargest #worldslargestcoalshovel #roadsideamerica #roadsideattraction #roadsidephotography #prayinghands #prayer #gianthands #kansas #missouri #oklahoma #stateline #statelines #tristate #tristatemarker #visitkansas #kansaslivingmag #onlyinkansas #noplacelikeKS #rootlessliving #ditchingsuburbia #dreambiglivetiny

Do you have a Grad👩🏼‍🎓who had to miss their ceremony? When I feel like celebrating, grilled swordfish topped with a salty black olive, basil, and tomato salsa pushes all the right buttons. It grills up in a flash; all I have to do is choose a wine and dinner is ready. Perfect for #winewednesdays too! .

Everything around the yard is blooming or getting ready to and I'm so in love with it all! The whole yard smells amazing from all the flowers and fruit trees! 😊 And I have my very first peonies! 😍 I planted eight peony plants and only one is flowering so far, so hopefully the others catch up. 😆 Oh.. and I tried to take cute photos with the chickies and they weren't having it. 😂 They're as bad as the kids about getting their photos taken! 🐔

Some more pictures previously not posted. Lack of mobility and being able to hike anywhere has me shuffling through a lot of older photos. This whitetail was kind enough to pose a couple times for me along with three others on the same hill. Taken in early spring at the Indiana Dunes National Park.
