Photo of the Week – January 24, 2013

Here’s one from the archives.

When I was in graduate school, photography was a welcome break from statistics and photocopying journal articles.  If I had the time, I’d grab my camera and head to a nearby prairie.  If not, I’d just wander around the north edge of the east campus (the agricultural campus) of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.  Sandwiched between some experimental cropfields was Dead Man’s Run, a small stream/ditch edged with smooth brome and weedy trees.  Dead Man’s Run was far from a prairie, but there were a few wildflowers now and then, a family of foxes, and – most importantly – no people but me!

This photo is one of my favorites from those days.
