Photos of Nebraska landscapes.

Thoroughly enjoyed these landscape shots. They really show the beauty of the Great Plains!
Beautiful pictures of a beautiful state!
You’ve really done a remarkable job of capturing the subtle and awe inspiring nature of Nebraska.
Thanks! Sorry not to have gotten to see at the big bison roundup last week. Sounds like it went well.
Hi, Chris. I enjoyed your prairie blog. I was looking for a contact for Tall Grass Nature Preserve in N. Oklahoma which I just visited Oct. 20th, when I found your blog. Two questions, maybe you know:
It is said to be a tall grass prairie but the grass did not look very tall compared to what I’m used to here in Central IL, even what I thought was big blue stem. Any reasons? Drought? bison grazing? 2. not much blooming at this time but goldenrod and another yellow plant, less than knee hi, with small yellow flowers coming from stems branching from the top of the plant, I believe in corymbs. I did not see any visible leaves. Any idea?
So much to see, so little time.
Chris,My name’s Christina deVillier. I work for TNC on the Zumwalt Prairie in NE Oregon. I found this blog and it’s a cool blog! via your palhpmet called Thistle Defense. We’re working on restoration on our prairie too, of course, and part of that effort is reseeding some disturbed areas with native forbs. Apparently, the prairie restoration community only wants to do restoration work with innocuous pretty things I’ve wandered all over the internet looking for any guidelines on the best planting practice for native thistles. We’ve got different varieties over here than you have in Nebraska (specifically Cirsium brevifolium), but do you have any thoughts about when to plant (spring or fall), whether the seeds might like some pre-treatment (stratification), etc? Just a neighborly sharing of information question :)Either way, good luck with your work. Prairie solidarity. All the best!
Absolutely beautiful! Seeing home so perfectly captured is wonderful especially for a homesick girl like me!
Love your pictures. Take “River Road” south of Red Cloud to Franklin, NE. A very beautiful
area following the Repulican River. Cliffs and nice over views of the river.
Now I officially like Nebraska. Great Photos!
I enjoyed looking through the photos. Nebraska is such a world away from me. Especially like the curves in one of the landscape photos and find the night shot with the tent and stars full of atmosphere.

Fantastic photos. I especially enjoyed the photos of the Niobrara Valley Preserve. It brings back great memories of my time spent working on the Niobrara National Scenic River as the park biologist for several years. The Preserve staff were fantastic to partner with on research projects.
Fantastic pictures, I’m planning a road trip through Nebraska – I can’t wait!
Lovely pictures, Chris. The place looks a blast!
