POTD: Home on the Range

Home on the Range Highway 191, Montana 2012

With the snowstorm hiding the mountains in the distance and a long straight highway out ahead, I felt like I had been transported back to Kansas where I grew up. Having spent so many years in the mountains, I’ve developed a strange appreciation for the simple minimalist lines of prairie landscapes that I was glad to get away from several decades ago.]]>

  1. This is a beautiful photograph, Larry. I especially appreciate the muted color palette and the effects of fog.
    Your comment about horizons reminds me of a similar comment made by Sam Abell in his book The Life of a Photograph about how his childhood in northern Ohio makes itself known in his photographs from other places by the flat horizon line or echoes of the same.

    1. Thanks Kathy. I can see what might be referred to as a “plains aesthetic” in other photographers work besides my own. I wonder if you can identify the photographers from the plains states simply by that characteristic.
