Sometimes the world gives me a big dope slap and reminds me to stop and look around. This photo comes from exactly that kind of moment.
It was late afternoon and I was on an ATV, returning to the shop from doing some work on one of our prairies, when I suddenly realized that the light around me was pretty stunning, and the clouds and prairie weren’t too shabby-looking either. Fortunately, although I didn’t have my “good” camera with me, I did have the sense to carry my little digital camera with me, and I was able to squeeze off a few shots before the light went away.
Even in the late fall after everything is well past blooming, and even most of the fluffy seeds have fallen, prairies are still beautiful.
I can’t imagine working anywhere else.
