Fall Photos

November 14, 2011 1 Comment

In September and October we showed fall photos on the air that viewers had sent into us. Most were sent to the entire weather staff, but I managed to get a few extra (excellent) ones in my own mailbox.  They were from the Wapsi Warriors, a 4H group from Independence.  I met the group last spring when they asked me to help them with their bucket o-flowers project. They planted different flowers in five gallon buckets and then submitted them to the Buchanan County Fair.  I understand they did very well and were sold at auction at very nice levels.  Not only are they good at planting buckets o-flowers, they are excellent photographers, as well.  They take pictures in the fall and put them on display in the entry at Drs. Kegler and Arend’s DDS office through the month of November.  I was happy to share the ones I received with our viewers.

Madi Arend, age 14, took this picture in Independence.

Ryan Arend, age 16, took this from his duck blind on the Wapsipinicon River in Independence.

Luke Lawless, age 12, took the following two photos.




From Alex Marzen, age 14


The Wapsi Mill in Independence on a calm day. Aunna Marzen took the photo. She is 13.


Ben Kelly took this photo of a burning bush from down his street.


This is Ben's sister Courtney. I was hoping she got out of the pile safely when....


I got this photo from Courtney of her 5-month-old mini-doxie, Milo. He appears to be in the same pile of leaves. That pile sure got its workout! Courtney says she is a mini-member of the Wapsi Warriors.


Makenzie Homan, age 9, took this photo at Black Hawk State Park in Lake View, IA.


Makenzie Homan took this photo, too, but this one was a little closer to home in Independence.

 Next up: the display board in the entry at the office. There are a couple of photos that I haven’t seen, so swing by and check it out.

Here is the scrapbook:

And, my favorite part… the group photo:
I have been told they are going to do some winter photos.  I can’t wait to see them!
Dig it!
