.midwest.




A few days ago I was driving home from work, trying frantically to a.) make it to my brother-in-law's baseball game b.) find the perfect drinking speed of my slushy (ie. as fast as I possibly can without getting a brain freeze)...anyways, amidst that drama, I noticed the wheat was perfect. I mean, it was glistening in the best possible way, and the breeze was swaying it perfectly. I was torn. I even did the whole slow drive by thing (sorry six o'clock traffic behind me). Long story short, I ended up pulling over for a quick snap on my cell. Upon looking at the results and seeing the total lack of beauty, I promptly drove to the game. (kicking myself the whole way for not foreseeing this predicament and bringing my camera with me always.)

So, a couple days later when I happened to catch a beautiful sunrise, I decided to go back to the wheat field and snap a few pictures. Now, I know this Midwest wheat pales in comparison to mountains and oceans and just about anything else in the U.S. but I think it looks pretty darn beautiful. ( or maybe I've just been land locked for too long....)

  1. Beauty can be found anywhere. Where I live I don't get to see landscapes such as this one, therefore to me is beautiful and unique ♥

    1. So, so true! I used to dislike the scenery here a lot because I was always comparing it to my former home in Utah...but I've since learned that beauty is everywhere if we care to look. :)
