Prairie Vistas Photography
landscape photography by John D Morrison
|Tony Kuyper||Tony Kuyper lives in Tonalea, Arizona, and has an excellent collection of his photographs of the Southwest on his website. As I was searching for ideas for my site, I came across Tony's site and stopped searching. The attributes I specially appreciated were his site's simplicity, its use of neutral colors (that don't fight with the photographs), the consistency of presentation from page to page, the simulated mat/frame using simple HTML techniques, and his 'rescue the light' philosophy of desktop darkroom procedures. Tony graciously agreed to let me copy his site's appearance and general techniques, and I appreciate it greatly.|
|Harland Schuster||Harland farms
near Morrill, Kansas, and still finds time to photograph around the state
to document its history and diversity. Check out his Kansas
Photo Tour. The last time I checked, his tour contains
photo visits to 147 Kansas sites!
"Landmarks help us to define where we are. Unfortunately, sometimes we get so used to the familiar, that we rush past it without appreciating its beauty. So it is with Kansas. Popularly regarded as "flat and boring", the state's often overlooked beauty is at best ignored and at worst ridiculed. But those who do take the time to appreciate the Kansas landscape are richly rewarded for their effort. The snow-capped mountains and desert canyons shout for attention. Kansas is subtle...She beckons with a whisper." ¯ Harland Schuster
|Kansas on the Net||There's lots of Kansas information on Kansas on the Net, published by John and Susan Howell of Wichita. They also publish Kansas Traveler, a quarterly print newsletter with an extensive calendar of Kansas events and exhibits for the current quarter. The newsletter's stories about Kansas people, places, and history are a great resource for planning trips around the state, and it's only $12 a year. John and Susan and the Kansas Department of Education are also the source of the clickable Kansas map on my Kansas courthouse page.|
|Kansas Geological Survey||The Kansas Geological Survey at the University of Kansas has a page of Educational Resources that can be useful to a Kansas tourist, including a library of photos taken by KGS staff over several years. The KGS web site is the source of the small county locator maps on each of my county courthouse pages.|
|Backroads Touring - Kansas||The Backroads Touring - Kansas site exists to support backroads motorcycling in Kansas. Founder and webmaster Roger Baugh has a links page with items of interest to any Kansas tourist, regardless of mode of transportation.|
