Home on the Range

It’s been more than two decades since Mary and I packed up the kids and headed west to the Phoenix metro area. We love the colorful Sonoran Desert and the southwestern roots we have planted here, but it is always nice to go “home” to Kansas where we were both raised.

I particularly love the photoremedy opportunities presented when we visit Mary’s hometown of  Clyde. During the last few trips to the area, I rise well before sunrise and head out to capture the morning colors presented all around Cloud County. I even find myself returning to many of the same areas–both on the range and in resilient small communities–where I’ve snapped pictures previously. Different times of day, and different seasons, often put some of these favorite sites in surprisingly different light. Below is a sample of some of my favorite Cloud County and other rural Kansas pictures from this year.

I’m working on a couple of additional Kansas photoremedy posts, including one which features our daughter Amanda introducing precious Isabella to her first Sunflower field experience.
