The "no place to go weekend" has been wonderful so far. We all slept in a bit this morning. So my Foto Finish post is a bit later than normal. The very talented sponsor of Foto Finish, Barbara over at Cat Patches, has graciously decided to reintroduce the weekly themes for those of us who can't pick out a photo to post without some guidance. But the themes are optional. Works for me. Thank you Barbara.
This week's optional theme is "Where I Live". In searching through my images, I cam across this one from a few years ago.
This is the empty field at the end of our street. Our neighborhood is on the very edge of town. Past this point it is all prairie and farms. Oklahoma is for the most part flat and doesn't have the most beautiful landscape in terms of hills, trees, and forests. But the prairie does show off the endless sky to great advantage. I like the dark background created by the clouds and the gold tones of the field and tree. The sun provides the most beautiful golden light on many late winter afternoons. I just have to convince myself to bundle up and deal with the bitterly cold winds that usually come with winter so I can go take photographs. I usually end up staying home in my cozy, heated sewing room.
