Landscape Hunting

Greetings Dear Reader –

Today Handsome Husband and I are off on a shooting safari of sorts. We’re not hunting elk, buffalo or even wild mushrooms.  We’re traveling into the hinterlands of northern Kansas in search of the legendary rolling hills and undulating tall grass prairies that give this area a special kind of beauty.

It’s been awhile since we’ve taken off on a trip like this. Too often lately we’ve been dashing off, hither and yon, tied to a long list of to-do’s.  Not this time. Our goal today is to get off the interstate and cruise the back roads with an eye toward the landscape rather than the clock.

My goal for this trip is to fill a memory card with as many photos as possible. Consider it homework of a sort, gathering information for a new series of landscape paintings. It's a tough job, but somebody's got to do it. 

What's on your to-do list this weekend?
