Quad-Cities-Marathon-2010-0168-Edit.jpg

Images of the activities and events surrounding the Quad Cities Marathon (QCM). The Quad Cities Marathon takes place on one of the most beautiful courses of any urban marathon in the United States. The marathon highlights the beauty of the mighty Mississippi River and the marathon course runs past and through a number of Quad Cities landmarks, such as the historic Arsenal Island, the I-74 Bridge, and did I mention lots of river scenery. There are also bands, entertainment, along the 26.1 mile course and dozens of hot air balloons drifting overhead or tethered along the course.

Not just a starter’s gun, but a cannon for the Quad Cities Marathon in 2010. This photograph was taken about 45 minutes before the start.

Blue Heron

A Blue Heron looks for trouble on the shoreline of a western Ontario lake. Part of the Canadian Shield, this area is one of North America’s most beautiful, serene, and vast wild places. The landscape is unique because of the climate and its large number of fresh water lakes. These unique characteristics provide habitat for plenty of land and water life. The landscape and abundance of wildlife also make this area a rich source of inspiration for fine art images and nature photography.
