Despite the fact that it rained most the day, I went out scouting anyway! I love the Kansas countryside. And I love it more with each passing day. I didn’t really think I would, being from West Virginia, but the wide open prairie of golden grass dotted with lonely trees and crossed with miles of fences and dirt roads has an appeal to it that one could never find out east. It’s the hardest thing to capture, though. It’s a challenge. And I like that!

The Lord has been answering many prayers. Someone else signed up for the workshop today! Imagine that. Practically 24 hours before the workshop starts, someone signs up. It’s up to 4 attendees now, and I praise the Lord for each one of them. Another answer to prayer is a vehicle that the Lindsay’s grandparents graciously let me use to do my scouting this week! I love it. It rides so smoothly, takes the gravel roads well, and is a reminder that God will take care of our every need.

It’s much more hilly out here then I thought it would be! They still make the roads straight though. Smile

    I LOVE that last picture!

    Me too! When I zoomed in to get a more stacked look, it really emphasized the low contrast caused by the abundance of moisture in the air. However, it looked kind of fake when I went to add more contrast in post processing. So, making it black and white fixed the problem nicely!
