Pleasantly Surprised

My parents came for a visit not long after we arrived in North Dakota. We spent a few wonderful days exploring the area and I found that it is really much different than I had originally imagined. There is much more texture to the landscape than I expected, and the river valley is quite beautiful. Yes, it is relatively flat, and no, there are not many trees, and yes, there are oil fields dotting the landscape, but there is so much more than that. I was pleasantly surprised at how beautiful the area is, and there is still so much more to see. I had forgotten just how big the sky is in this part of the country, but perhaps most of all, I am simply loving being back in an area with wide open spaces.

Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair. ~Khalil Gibran

  1. You got some beautiful pictures on our road trip. And you also did a great job with your interpretations with Lightroom. I’m thinking you are loving the new program!! 🙂
