The World As We See It, Or As You Missed It..16 July 2011

Captured near Bruxelles in western Manitoba, Canada….Better seen fullscreen

Canon XTi, w 55mm Lens, AV 16.0, Shutter speed 1/400, ISO 400

If your not from the prairie
You don’t know what’s flat
You’ve never seen flat

When travellers pass through across our great plain
They’ll all view our home, they all say the same:
“It’s simple and flat” They’ve not learned to see,
The particular beauty that’s now part of me.

If you’re not from the prairie,
You don’t know what’s flat

From the book If you’re not from the prairie by David Bouchard.

    This is such a beautiful shot Larry,

    After the sunburn of the day
    handling a pitchfork at a hayrack,
    after the eggs and biscuit and coffee,
    the pearl-gray haystacks
    in the gloaming
    are cool prayers
    to the harvest hands.
