I like control. I like being the master of my own destiny! So... when it's time to go visit family that lives 1200 miles away, I could shuffle us all to the airport but actually, I'd rather drive!! Nineteen hours in the car with bored kids... not nice. Stopping whenever I want to, retaining possession of my luggage at all times, seeing interesting things along the way, VERY NICE!
Mostly though, it's the photographer in me that loves to drive across America. It's such a beautiful ride~ there are so many photos that I left untaken... solidified in my memory but not in print. I did, however, capture some that I can share with our friends in Abu Dhabi that show how amazing the American country side is.
This is in Iowa... about 6:30am and the sun is rising over the corn. This would be perfect for HDR but alas, I am not skilled in such processes yet! Still, I loved seeing all the windmills all over the midwest and this photo is how I will remember our drive out of Spirit Lake.
As we continued down I-90, we saw some more gorgeous crop rows with the sun just peeking up enough to brighten the whole field. This is somewhere in Minnesota:
I am really obsessed with sun flare lately... I've been purposely shooting into the sun for the last few weeks just for the fun of it! I love this one of the exit ramp just off I-90 in Minnesota.
I'll miss all this green and blue when we go back to the Middle East in September...
Finally, we were leaving the park area one night while we were in Lake Okoboki, Iowa... I looked over and saw this gorgeous sunset and couldn't resist!
Until Next Time!
