I like to take long drives in the country on the weekends and I never leave home without my camera. I have always enjoyed the natural beauty of Kansas. Whether it is wildlife or stormy skies or the vacant buildings in pastures that all have a story connected to them and one can only guess as to what that story was so many years ago. I live in southern Lyon County and most of my photos are taken right in my area. There is beauty all around us, you just have to look. I feel so lucky to live in Kansas where we experience four seasons and each one is as different and as beautiful as the next.
