  1. Wow, this is beautiful Sharon. I love the power lines giving perspective receding into the middle distance. The two patches of orange on the horizon almost look like eyes of a dragon awakening, the right one a slit and the sun on the left, an eye. Fanciful, eh? I love your flat horizons, everywhere I look there are hills, no long beautiful vistas like this.

    • Eliza! I loved this, especially the dragon eyes. Thank you. πŸ™‚

      I’m happy to know you like the flat horizons. So many folks from the east and west coast feel it’s boring, and it’s true that it takes a certain perspective to find the beauty. But beautiful it is–especially in winter.

      There’s something very existential about looking out over a bare landscape, where you can see for miles.

      • Oh, it’s definitely primeval. It harkens back to the dawn of humans walking the African savannah. You could see predators and enemies approaching a long way off without the hiding places! There is a comfortable and safe aspect to this type of landscape. Someday I will experience it in person! πŸ™‚

        • Just an incredible comment, Eliza. Thank you.

          I’d never thought of it that way, but it makes perfect sense. This is a revelation and one I will keep close at heart from now on.

          Thank you!!

          And yes, you would love the flatlands. I hope you can visit some day!
