Sunrise on the Prairie

I made another foray to the Lawther-Deer Park Prairie Preserve today.  My goal over the next year is to show, in photos and in words, what nature lives and thrives on the prairie.  It will be from a nature photographer’s perspective, but also as a member of the community that the preserve resides in.

As the sun broke over the horizon, and spilled light onto the prairie, this is what I wanted to capture.  The muted tones across the landscape, and a just rising sun, combine for a nice backlit shot.


There is beauty all around as I walk the trail through the prairie.
