Sunset On The Little Arkansas River


You are looking at the very end of the Little Arkansas river in the heart of Wichita, where it flows into the Arkansas (sometimes called the Big Arkansas) river.  There is a small elevation drop you can see on the left side of the frame as the little river drops into the main river.   The ducks and geese were happy this particular evening because they got to enjoy a rain shower.  Blackbear Bosin’s Keeper of The Plains can be seen here, viewed head on.  This is a three exposure HDR processed in Photomatix Pro and Lightroom.

    That orange sky is simply amazing, especially with the blue sky in the background. Nice combination. I’ve got the impression that Wichita is a lot more photogenic than people give it credit for. All of your shots in the urban areas look very inviting. I may have to put it on my bucket list! And your duck population rivals ours.

  2. I don’t know Ken, sometimes one has to work pretty hard to find inviting scenes around here. I am probably jaded, having lived here my whole life. We do seem to be a duck and goose friendly city, I’ll give you that. Thanks for the comment as always.

    I just accidentally ‘liked’ my own post, and can’t figure out how to delete it. Nothing to see here, move along!
