Another road trip to Amarillo this past Monday. This time early enough to find some awesome morning light. Good thing hubby was driving this time so I could snap away.
Hope you won't be too bored. Most people hate this 2 hour drive across the FLAT plains. But I think the theme of the month is 'seeing', so this is what I see.
All photos are SOOC (straight out of camera) except one. I was intrigued that I was able to capture some that looked good enough not to touch up at all. I didn't even crop them so don't be too critical. Shutter speed at 500 or 750 for the morning shots.
Rarely do I catch an interesting animal shot speeding down the highway.
I love prairie grass. Nearly as much as I love sunflowers. Especially when the light shines through it.
A random flag.
Did a little adjusting on this one with the old truck.
Did I mention I love prairie grass? Especially the white gold this time of year. The only thing that could have made it better would be a stormy dark blue sky.
I was glad TXDOT hadn't mowed yet.
On the way home the evening light was good to me. I stayed in Amarillo far longer than was planned and I was glad.
I drove by myself, so I stopped whenever I felt like it. Even on the interstate.
As I passed by this I slammed on my brakes and looked around. No one was coming up the access road so I put it in reverse and backed on down the road so I was straight East of the 'pond'.
Sometimes I feel very brave. Even the mosquitoes didn't threaten me much although they could have carried me away.
I love to shoot:
Trees (mostly dead ones)
The really best part was cruising the antique shops on Route 66 with my friend Barbara. We found some cool stuff!
Three link ups today.
