Balltown Iowa

Balltown Iowa

Yesterday morning I was determined to go to Balltown Iowa to shoot from a high vantage point.  Balltown is a small town in north east Dubuque county and is approximately 120 miles from my home.  In order to catch the sunrise I would have to leave at 3:15am.  The summer sun rises at around 5:30.  I took off in time and the drive over to my final destination was uneventful however long.  Glad I brought a thermos full of coffee with to keep me company.

As I arrived the sun was just breaking the horizon and my fist stop was at the edge of Balltown where the town built a scenic overlook.  I took a couple of pics there but could not see the sun and decided to move down the road to the main overlook about a half mile further up the road.  I love the vantage point from this location as one can see all the way to the Mississippi River from here and on to Wisconsin.
