It goes without question, that KAW point is one of my favorite places to go in Kansas City. You’ll find me there at least four or five times a week, usually with camera in tow. It’s hands down, the best view of the city. It’s also rich in history, can be great for wildlife (really depends on the time of year), and most importantly, it’s easily accessible by bike. Although, my bike riding skills have been suffering lately, but thats a whole other story… I ‘ll just blame winter.

Enjoy some of my favorite photos of Kansas City over the last few months from KAW point. I’d write more, but, it’s Friday and my brain is fried.

Super Blue Blood Moon

Super Blue Blood Moon composite over Kansas City, Kansas and Missouri River

The Super Blue Blood Moon was certainly awesome to see. I woke up early without a plan and only a spot in mind to view this rare event. With high clouds and haze in the sky, the viewing conditions weren’t the best, but okay. I was armed with two cameras, two lenses, and a tripod (forgot my other one). The idea for this composition came about after I had shot everything. I stitched and blended two wide angle shots of KCK together. The first shot taken at the beginning, and the second taken at peak, which also happened to be sunrise. In between, I used my long lens to shoot the moon throughout the eclipse, to build out the composite of the moon phases. Not too bad for going in without a plan. (131 of 365) #kansascity365

After a whirlwind weekend of traveling through the southwest (more of those photos to come in the near future), we came home to a packed city waiting to view the Eclipse of the century. I had planned out a spot on the northwest side of the city, that I hoped wouldn’t be too packed. When I arrived to setup around ten in the morning it was pouring down rain, but I was the only one in the park. 🙂 The rain let up around a quarter after a eleven, just in time to setup and start the eclipse. Around noon the park started to fill up with people. I think by the time the full eclipse happened, there were only 30 people in the park.

I setup three cameras to shoot the eclipse. One pointed towards the sun, one pointed towards the city, and the other setup to time-lapse as the shadow passed over. As the eclipse approached, the clouds started rolling in. We hit totality just before the clouds rolled in. Where I was setup, there was just over a minute of totality, with the clouds it was almost cut in half. But still made for some exciting shots, and I was still able to capture the Diamond Ring phenomena, which I was most excited about.

I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I do. Now it’s time to start planning for 2024.
