Memories On The Prairie



A country cemetery on a hill overlooking the farm fields.  It's planted in native wildflowers and the vegetation is burned off every other year, because some prairie plants need fire for their seeds to open.

Perpetual Motion

 
 
I caught this well after sunset and really liked it.  Just added it to my SmugMug site in case someone else likes it too.

Blazing Cool



On top of a hill overlooking a reservoir, warm in the bright sun, with cool water at the bottom of the canyon.  Not a sound to be heard except the wind.  I could get used to spending more time in a place like this.

There's such a feel of freshness in the clean dry air, a freshness that you only get after a thunderstorm in the Midwest.  Then the air returns to humid and smothering.  There's a closed-in feeling to summer in the Midwest, whereas the west's high and dry atmosphere feels expansive and invigorating.

Maybe it's all in my mind.  But probably not.

Dawn at The Holy City









Between Cody, WY, and the east entrance to Yellowstone National Park.  This rock formation is called The Holy City because of it's resemblance to the skyline of Jerusalem.
