The Beautiful Prairie

There are days when the wind howls and blows across this flat land, the endless gray skies and treeless prairie strain the eyes.

Then we have mornings like this one, which started out foggy but burned off to a sky of spun silk and golden sun.
Spun in the Sky

Instead of taking the main road to work, I headed down a back road which took me past this cool shed / barn.
The Barn

Both photos were taken with my iPhone4s and adjusted slightly using Photogene2.

Hi Shirley! Your second shot is wonderful but I like the first one very much too. The composition in the first one is just lovely.

Wow, I love the sky in these amazing images.

I see from your gear that you own a 70-300mm nikkor lens. I'm thinking of buying one. What do you think of it.

Your pictures just draw me in! I know I've said it before, but this Southern California girl loves looking at that blue sky without the ever famous smog layer under it. haha. Great shots. I definitely have Instagram/iPhone envy. =(

You should definitely take this route more often! These are gorgeous images. I love that old barn. I'm going to check out that app.

Southwest Arkie  – (February 2, 2012 at 5:15 PM)

Charade  – (February 2, 2012 at 7:36 PM)  

I found your site via Rural Thursday - and that first shot of blue sky took my breath away!

Evelyn S.  – (February 2, 2012 at 11:41 PM)  

I think I've visited you before....I remember the "chemical engineer" part! Wonderful capture of the expanse of beautiful sky and clouds...and that old barn is special. (Have you ever posted on Barn Charm?)
