Of the Prairie

I've always wanted to take a picture of that "lone tree in the middle of nowhere". If I had a photography "bucket list", it would be on it. It's hard to find such subjects, even along the flat prairie, but last Saturday, while driving east in unfamiliar territory, I spotted one.

We were headed to my daughter's soccer tournament, and on the way there, I only had access to my iPhone. I was better prepared on the return trip to capture my "Lone Tree".

All Alone

I guess it's not really alone - the county road runs by it.
Down the Road

Of course, we passed by several barns during our trip. This one caught my eye because of the flag mural on the side.
Bless The USA

So one "bucket list" item done, a thousand more to find.

Your three in the middle of nowhere is excellent! You could not have done it better! And the color of your shots are just wonderful ♥

I love the idea of a bucket list. We have quite a number of lone trees out here, coastal oaks in the middle of pasture land or vineyard land. I like taking photos of them, but often wonder if people find them as interesting as I do. I'm now happy to know someone does:-)

Such a beautiful tree and gorgeous photos! I guess #1 on my list right now is a monarch. They don't seem to stay still very long.

Simply wonderful rural shots, Shirley! So glad to see you in the link list! We seems to have lost contact somehow. I hate when that happens. :)

Beautiful shots, Shirley! Love that landscape! I really like open country.
