“Earth laughs in flowers…” Ralph Waldo Emerson
Remember when I talked about the colors of a prairie? Look what grows at Goose Lake Prairie, blue vervain wildflowers! How I love the bluish-purple hue which breaks up the over powering green of the vast prairie. If you have any kind of a gentle breeze, it’s rather hard to take a clear picture of wildflowers closeup. Just a tiny sway and your subject is blurry! When you’re standing in the middle of nowhere, nothing blocks the wind…even if you think there is no wind.
Next to Goose Lake Prairie is Heidecke Lake, here you can find boat docks and on this day, still waters. This is one of my favorite pictures. At the end of a long day, it represents rest and peace. This will definitely be a painting one day!
