What is it about the prairie?
It’s simple, it’s stark, it’s pretty good at being flat.
The casual observer might remark that there’s nothing much interesting about the prairie.
Of course, that causal observer wouldn’t be looking close enough; at how simple can be beautiful, how stark can be inspiring, and how flat…well, how flat really isn’t half bad.
I find so much beauty in the prairie, so much comfort.
Really, over the past four years that I’ve lived here, the prairie has stolen my heart.
It’s as simple as that.
People call this place the middle of nowhere…but nowhere couldn’t possibly be this perfect.
Disclaimer–This isn’t true prairie here in the above pictures. This is prairie turned farmland. True, uninterrupted, and untouched prairie is pretty darn hard to find these days. That said, I still love this landscape and will miss it dearly when I leave this place.
Also, if you’re a frequent visitor to my blog, you’ll know I’m trying something new here. I’ve never done a gallery before…but I was inspired to try my hand at some more picture taking after receiving encouraging feedback on my 5 Day Challenge last week. I’d love to know what you think of these. 🙂
