This is one of the reasons I was absent for awhile - a quick trip to visit family in Kansas. The trip was short - two days really - and about family time, so there wasn't much time for shooting. I did manage to slip away for a few hours one morning. Not knowing the area, I wasn't sure what I was going for or what I might come back with. I limited my exploration to one fairly small area - and found that had advantages. By not rushing around, trying to squeeze in too much, I was better able to really see.
It didn't hurt that I was given some fantastic clouds to work with that morning. I could have some fun photographing here.
