It's Saturday and I'm home! July has been insane in terms of activities: family get togethers, swim meets, and business travel. Consequently, I've been MIA on some of my regular posts, as well as being really slow on catching up with everyone else's posts. Things should slow down in a few weeks, or at least I'm desperately hoping that they do!
Moving on to this week's Foto Finish topic of "Farm Fields". I struggled with this one and ended up using my own interpretation of what constitutes a field used for "farming".
There's not much farming in the part of Oklahoma where I live. It's mainly ranching. So you see miles of the Oklahoma prairie used to raise cattle and horses. This shot was taken along Highway 60 between Pawhuska and Ponca City. It's a pretty lonely stretch of highway. Very few houses are visible from the road. This is also oil country. It's where the early oil industry in Oklahoma boomed, so you'll see the occasional oil pump. In many ways this is a desolate land scape, but oh what the the light does out here. I used to drive this stretch of road pretty frequently, usually leaving the house before day break and coming home as the sun was setting. Watching either the sun rise or set out here is breathtaking.
