Can you see the two hawks near the center of the photo? They were duking it out over something! It was beautiful to watch them - they were so graceful, yet strong! I hope they were able to sort out their differences.
The rest of the photos are from a road trip Mom and I took out to a little town we've shown you before - Keats! I love going out there! Let's get buckled in and head out!
|"The rear's clear. Let's roll, Mom!"|
I always help check the road with my side mirror. That's part of the duties when you ride shotgun!
On the way to Keats, there are some really cool old limestone buildings. Some of them aren't in the greatest condition, but Mom thinks that makes them look more interesting. We don't have permission to go onto the property, but we shot shot these from the main road:
Here is the same structure, but from a little different vantage point and with some special effects thrown in:
Pretty cool, don't you think? Here's a place I'd like to check out:
Mom wanted to straighten it, but didn't want to cut off those arched tree branches, so please excuse the odd framing. Oh. Yeah. Well, have I mentioned we went out with out the camera? iPhone through the sunroof. That explains why it was crooked. Camera next time - right, Mom?
We took another shot of that gas station in Keats:
Mom loves that building!
There's also an old church in Keats that was dedicated back in 1889 - we thought we'd share some different shots of that!
Isn't it beautiful? It made us feel so peaceful and reverent! How about some special effects shots?
Two different takes on the same photo; a double-dose of 1880s serenity!
On our way back home, we passed our favorite barn. Mom had to take another shot of it:
Partial limestone barn, a windmill, stacked stone wall ... pure Kansas, don't you think?
We hope you enjoyed this week's take on Serene Scenery Sunday and I hope you can take some time to get out and enjoy the beauty around you!
