Rainy Day

It's a rainy, grey day here today and it made me think of this photo I took on the way back home from our vacation. Never did I think I would have hubby stop the car just a few miles from our house so I could get out and take a photo of our every day surroundings. The picture lost a little of its vividness when uploading and the rays are a little harder to see as well, but you get an idea of the amazing view we saw. If we would have stopped the car a few minutes sooner we would have captured intense white and turquoise rays. This natural beauty of wide open fields is what I love about South Dakota. I very much enjoy the peaceful surroundings... even if it's a rainy day. Each state has its own little magic... each one is special. I just wish it didn't have to get quite so cold here in the fall and winter.

What do you love about the state you live in?

I have my dear husband stop the car all the time for my photos... he is such a trooper! ;) What a gorgeous picture, gorgeous scenery! I have to say I feel the same way about Nebraska, the wide open peaceful land is beautiful!

I love this photo. It reminds me of stormy days in Texas. I love it when the sky is dark and there is a fresh breeze.
