Tall Grass Prairie Preserve

Chase County, Kansas

Posted a similar iPhone shot from the road, with Cindy's help.
This is one I adjusted contrast on from the Leica.
This is the largest preserved area of prairie in the US, saved by the Nature Conservancy.
They do a great job, and are breeding bison here as well. Look for a few shots of those creatures in a few days...

Leica M9 ,Leica Summicron 28/2.0
1/350s f/11.0 at 28.0mm iso160 full exif

other sizes: small medium large original

Very lovely with the cloud shadows, adding depth, Michael.
A beautiful scene. Good to know that the Bison are making a come-back.

I love the prairie and and mid-west scenery. The sun playing on the rolling hills is beautiful.
