Sunsets From Kansas

I’m headed back to Minnesota tomorrow after a quick long weekend trip back home to Kansas. I always get a bit sad to leave. Tonight I went out and shot some sunset scenes with David, Alex, and my sister. The wheat is just starting to turn golden, western meadowlarks are singing their songs, and there is plenty of open sky to view a beautiful orange sunset on a clear blue-skied evening. We also spotted a skunk, four white-tailed deer, several rabbits, and some unidentified creature that was rustling in the wheat field, and scared the bejeezus out of me as I moved in closer for a picture.
