Sunset on the Western Plains   3 comments

There are few of God’s spectacles quite like a sunset. My travels have found me among many as rich and as colorful as I can imagine, and that are truly awe inspiring. These three photographs were taken minutes apart as the sun gently slid beneath the horizon just outside the small town of Wala Wala, WA.  I was alone in an open field with only my thoughts to keep me company on a cool evening with a gentle breeze replacing the warmth of the glowing sun.  The fields had been plowed and the heavy impressions of the footprints of combines and tractors were all that was left on the rolling hills.

These photos reflect the peaceful tranquility of life on a farm among thousands of acres of land. It was a nice respite from the hustle and bustle of modern life were I live, outside of one of our countries largest cities, Atlanta.

Although I didn’t have the opportunity to explore the local area further, this is also part of the Columbia valley wine region. Perhaps on another trip I will be able to visit some of the many vineyards to photograph the grapes as they cling to the vines ready to be harvested for another years great vintage.

I’ve written about my visit to Peru in several recent posts and continue to be drawn to a few particular images that move me in a way very few of my photographs have over the many years I have been a photographer. Sometimes, words simply do a disservice to images and therefore I am electing to write nothing about these in favor of letting them speak for themselves. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

As always, thanks for stopping by.
