Pictures from a morning walk out on the farm that turned into an impromptu photo shoot.
|"I am Daisy and I am queen"|
|ah, the wind|
|Looking west while scooching under an electric fence. Daisy was able to walk under. Yes, there are some perks to being petite.|
With these pictures (especially the previous two), I tried to capture the wide, beautiful emptiness of western Kansas. Granted, not all of Kansas is like this, and neither is all of the western part of the state. (It's just a bit drier here so the watersheds aren't as deep, and so the hills aren't as high)
So just look at the above picture and imagine turning in a circle and that's all you see, save a few cows and a few trees on the horizon where the house is. That's how it is there. The High Plains of North America are just that.
Really, its no wonder the wind blows so hard and the Dust Bowl occurred.
I really love that sky, though I have to be careful when taking photos because the sky is so big and the ground is just a strip, my subject turns into an unintended silhouette, even in the day.
When walking home, Daisy started shivering and my little sister held her out of pity. It is so, so easy to spoil a little dog.
Until next time, so long.
